Why do you feel bad for negotiation salary? The big 4 absolutely 100% does not feel bad if they pay you less than you’re worth.

Don’t feel guilty for understanding and desiring your value.

When I negotiate I ask for 20% more than I want. So I negotiate down to what I want or get more than what I want.

Always negotiate. The worst they say is no.

Negotiating is about getting paid what you’re worth. If you don’t you’re leaving money on the table that you deserve. Absolutely nothing to feel bad about - I like when people stand up for themselves - shows they have a backbone

I'm not really following, who told you not to sell yourself short? They may not have been referring to salary.

I have heard that some companies give you one time to ask for more money and get it.

Thanks for the advice! I'll keep that in mind.

My partner got a City of Toronto offer. Salary band is 104-121k. HR asked for his expectations and he said 115k. HR came back with a 106k offer stating nobody on the team makes that much so they cant offer it. Also said she is unsure if there is any wiggle room if any at all. I’ve looked at everyone on the team with the same titles salary on the sunshine list and the lowest I see is 121k. I assume there is an OT component of some sort but also can’t confirm. Thoughts? /negotiating advice?
