Negotiation Details – Although I attempted to negotiate, terms were not very flexible. My advice is if you don't ask, you'll never know what you may have missed. I heard recently that women are still paid less than men for the same work -- the reason? It's not because of gender, but that by nature women are more likely to accept an initial offer, compared to men, who +90% of the time, will successfully negotiate one or more terms.
