Aside from salary, what did you negotiate for? Are bonuses a part of your contract? Did you ask for extra vacay or any other non-monetary benefits? How’d you do it?

After they counter with a lower salary than you ask....use other factors to close the gap...bonuses tied to performance, stipend for car payment or transportation or cell phone bill, extra vacation, work from home flexibility, etc....try to make up at least 1/2 the difference in the value from these type of things

What director 1 said. Look up the term 'bargaining range'

Director 1 is spot on. I’d just add a signing bonus. Always found that was the easiest to get because it’s a one time payment, but then I’d always use as part of “total compensation” to negotiate raises...

One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
