For those of you who have negotiated (or renegotiated) job perks and more, how do you think things have changed in the past few years? If you’re on the hiring side, what requests seem to be more common these days? (For the hiring peeps: are there any common requests that always strike you as ridiculous?)
In the past we’ve talked about
- negotiating a great salary and other benefits (as well as some other less common benefits, like a tech budget — it may also be helpful to know what vacation benefits others get)
- negotiating flexible work arrangements, like negotiating reduced work hours and/or selling a reluctant boss on remote work (that last link was written a few years ago, though, so I’m guessing it’s much easier than it was!)
- how to save $10K a year by using job benefits (and which ones to look at when you’re negotiating)
- whether you can negotiate future maternity leave (before you’re pregnant)
What other types of things are negotiating right now? Readers are having an interesting threadjack this morning about negotiating travel requirements (particularly in light of Dobbs); you may also be negotiating how much face time is required in the office, if at all.
Let’s hear from you guys — how do you think job negotiations have changed recently?
