I always recommend bringing a hand gun to the session. And don’ be afraid to use it to get what you want. Always worked for me - you‘can find me at Rikers Island, just two cells down from Jeffrey Epstein!

1. Explain how you can be a value add above the bare minimums (ex. Experience) or 2. Explaining external factors such as previous pay, state income taxes, benefits of other offers such as higher 401k match or paid time off etc. for this job to be competitive and give you the desired raise for switching firms

Depends on context. Best to negotiate on your way into a role, not while you’ve been there for a while. Best to start by reading Herb Cohen.

Anyone else think companies have convinced us salary is a taboo topic only to help the top get away with unequal pay. base salary should be standardized and bonuses depend on performance (chargeable hours, project reviews, hours charged to internal codes).

2 years ago I decided to chop my salary for WL balance, and it worked - depression became manageable. But losing all that $ and momentum was painful. My current job is in Covid danger, but I’m also in the final rounds to return to double the salary, but double the work. I don’t know, what a shitty choice.
