Negotiating Compensation

Congrats, you rocked the interview and have an offer letter sitting in your inbox, hot off the press. Now what? We will explore what can be negotiated in terms of salary, benefits, signing bonuses, and the rest of your compensation package. As well we will explore tips and tricks on how to effectively negotiate with your new employer.

Notes about our venue:  Rogue Ale House provides space for our presentations free of charge as a service to the community.  Because of the serving of alcohol on the premises, our presentations are restricted to those who are 21 or older and can produce valid proof of age if requested.  Also, we request that outside food and drink are not brought into Rogue, as we would currently be forced to shut down this service if Rogue decided that we were no longer welcome.

    Its gonna be tight quarters tonight. We only have the little room for space (i.e. inside the garage door). Not my choice, but we'll make the best of it.

    I passed the phone interview:) Now the manager wants to meet face to face. I should be thrilled.
    I am told (pharmaceutical sales) I will be given a list of who (customers "healthcare providers") to see and salary will be $15000 less than I made in my last position. I have savings to buy some time. Do I accept the job with benefits or wait for the job I really want?
    1099 straight commission is also an option with no benefits. Hmm?

    Thanks for any and all feedback.

      If you accept a position, you should be commiting for at LEAST a year... anything else is harmful for your career and can lead to some awkward questions on a resume. Ask yourself if you're willing to stick with this for a year, or if you would rather wait for something better.

      i agree, but it should be a two way agreement. in pharma the companies can hire a field force in anticipation of a product launch or get FDA approval on a new product indication and beef up the sales force only to turn arround and say sorry. its a risk people must be willing to take. i think a good manager would understand the career ladder and job market is changing.

    I start a Temporary position (1 to 3 months) tomorrow, so hoping I get off in time to make it downtown, maybe a bit late if I can make it.
