An employer told me that he is considering offering me the job and he asked me first to tell him if I have any expectations regarding the salary. I told him the amount of fixed salary I think is legitimate, and that that I expect a bonus/variable part in addition (for which I didn't specify the exact amout).
The salary I stated is the minimum I want, and it's is the fixed part of the salary already touched by someone working in the company (who touches a yearly bonus in addition to it). It does not necessarily make me satisfied, that's why I insisted on expecting an additional part.
This is a small company, I didn't want to risk by giving a higher salary than what I know they already offer, and don't like haggling. I expect to be able to negotiate just the bonus/varibale part, and that would make me satisfied. The employer said he will contact me back to discuss it.
Is my approach too naive?
