Entry level salaries are typically not very negotiable. A company will typically establish a narrow, finite salary range and will only vary, if at all, a few hundred dollars from the original offer.
Mid-level salary ranges, however, may offer the opportunity of salary negotiation that is 10-20% higher than the original offer. Additionally, you may be able to negotiate a signing bonus, stock shares or options and other benefits.
