Ah, Greed is the American Way

In the blog Fistful of Talent, the author discusses the complications of finalizing a recruitment deal when the new employee wants a better offer. The lady mentioned in the post wanted the company to cover her BMW payments and executive office rent – in total, some $16,200.

Who has the cajones to ask for over sixteen grand, in addition to what (I can only assume) was an impressive salary? I have friends who work 50-60 hours a week and earn less than that. But if anyone has a job offer for me that includes rent and car payments, let me know and I’ll jump all over it.

I’m still working to develop my esoteric experience at work, but I can’t wait for the day when I’m a widely-sought SME and can demand an extra $16,000. “Because I’m worth it.”
