The 1Life team suggest these approaches to that tough negotiation:
Be aware that there’s more to your job than how much they pay you
At the same time as it’s a good idea to have information about comparative salaries, it’s also important to be aware of the specifics of the company that you work for. For example, if it’s a small company, but it offers you flexible hours and a great working environment, you can’t necessarily expect your employers to pay you the same as you would earn at a large corporation. Remember to weigh up all the softer benefits, and not just the money, when you’re negotiating.
