  • Wondering..

    I'm sincerely asking this question, so please be nice. -How much do you think it comes into play that women may not negotiate as effectively (generally speaking), for many institutionalized reasons and HR departments may some times take advantage of that, by trying to low ball on compensation instead of clearly sticking to what the pay grades should be? -Seems not to be the case here maybe, Greising seems to be good at being appropriately aggressive. -But would like to sincerely here real thoughts on this. Thanks!
