Should I go ahead and quote 8k - which means a 60% raise? Would that be too unreasonable to ask?
Glassdoor works by job titles, very unreliable gauge. It is very common for the same job title in many companies to have a very wide range. For e.g. in a bank VP can range from 7k to 25k depending on experience and type of job. If you just hantum 60% raise and justify by saying you read from glassdoor, they will blacklist you as not serious and just out to try your luck for a quick buck.
