Is it okay if the salary bump is smaller but they replace it with things like more annual leave and other benefit?

That really depends on what you value or prefer. Some people don't mind opting to have more days of annual leave so they can go on holidays / take time off for family.

If you rather get paid more and give up some annual leave or other benefits, that could be something you can negotiate for. You can speak openly with the company to take a lower number of annual leave or other benefits, in exchange for higher annual salary.

Apart from that, the key with any salary negotiation is to put together a compelling case to the employer of why you deserve the salary you are negotiating for. If an employer is deciding between you and another candidate - why should you be paid $x more?

You'll need to justify the incremental salary with relevant work experiences you may have, skills you have developed that's directly applicable in the role, a compelling portfolio, or what you can tangibly contribute.

One tip is that you can look at the company's goals and business problem, and put together a proposal or action plan on what you will implement if you are hired.

For other jobseekers dealing with how to share expected their expected salary during the interview process ..

Agreed with the posts here.

While salary negotiation is a taboo for fresh hires or industry jumps with little prior relevancy, it is commonplace if youíre maneuvering around the same career trajectory. No you will not irk the other party off, itís purely business.

But the current company really not worth staying as no progression.

2015-2017 - Project engineer in Construction (ACMV) - Local SME (50 employee) Starting 2.9k, Leave 3.8k

2018-2019 - Sales Engineer (ACMV Equipment) - Local SME (10 employee)
Starting 4.2k, now 4.5k (not many employer benefits)

2020 - Bidding Engineer (Building Automation) - German MNC
Offer me 4.5k
So TS did you go to Siemens in the end

Degree or not isn't the problem. It is the role and your past experience in a SME that's hindering your progress. We normally don't pay well for SME crossovers. But you can prove your worth and move up the pay scale quite quickly if you prove to be capable.
