Anyway, i'm nervous as hell. This is a bigtime company, and if i can get it, it would be a great opportunity and more money. One quick question, is it ok to have written notes/questions with you in the interview? Things you want to know about the company? I never did that in the past, but i've heard of people doing that and it would make you look more prepared, no? Is it unprofessional?

Anyone have other tips?
Absolutely have pre-written questions, it makes you look prepared and the quality of those questions are likely higher than they've seen before.

I agree with the suggestions above but you don't need to be scared to talk about money. It's fine but it should NOT be the primary reason for your job change or your main focal point. Then it looks awful. That said, generally is best to avoid it but you can mention it if you can do so tactfully.
