Salary Negotiation

Hello All,

I just had the first interview with ABB, not sure if there will be a second one, but still - I asked about the compensation and they told me their number, a range rather, that was a bit lower (~10K) than I had anticipated and had been advised of by a Swiss friend who is in the same industry. The question is - is it common to negotiate salary or one is expected to either accept or back off?
Maybe a silly question, but the last time I was accepted an offer it was a long time ago, in Canada, and I was fresh out of college.

Thank you,
