being on the lower end of your cell sure feels bad.

I am outside of the ranges listed, in the good way. Better to be lucky than good.

Did you provide it? The last time my DWS recruiter asked for my salary info (after a promotion and big pay raise) and I declined to provide it. I would provide it under an anonymous survey, like what Actuarial Careers does but I don't want my recruiter to know what I make.

my experience leads my cell to be super big. as long as I am well above the low end I guess I am ok.

Eh I tend to tell them, but then again my only job switch I found the job myself rather than use a recruiter. I keep in touch because you never know, but I feel like my job search is in my own hands. If I was working with a recruiter and they only want to show me low salary jobs or tell me not to negotiate, that's their problem. Don't think it'd hold me back from applying or from negotiating in spite of them.

Nationally? Care to elaborate?

It's happened several times in recent history.
