Why Women Are Failing at Salary Negotiations

This is an example of self censoring for ladies

Women make approximately 0.77 cents to every dollar a man makes, according to Time Magazine.

Once a candidate passes both of those, we start salary negotiations. This is where the women seem to come in last.

Often, a woman will enter the salary negotiation phase and I’ll tell them a number will be sent to them in a couple days. Usually we start around $45k for an entry level position. 50% to 60% of the women I interview simply take this offer. It’s insane, I already know I can get authorization for more if you simply refuse. Inversely, almost 90% of the men I interview immediately ask for more upon getting the offer.

This problem continues to the counteroffer. Men will simply put out a higher number, while many women in this person’s experience don’t even put out a number, so the negotiator continues to lowball it.
