Are there any cons to applying? Maybe you'll have to waste some vacation time for interviews, but that's the only down side u see. Other than that you either don't get offered the job (same outcome as not applying), you get an offer you need to refuse for salary and they keep your name for future jobs, or you get an offer and a good salary and take it.
