    I'm always interested in these discussions. There's such a conflict between "live in the world that is" and "create the world that ought to be." I think women tend toward their personal "ought to be," which is "I ought to be offered what I'm worth, I shouldn't have to risk embarrassment by negotiating for more." The way to live in the world that is, of course, is for women to negotiate actively (on both sides of the hiring table -- that goes for women hiring managers, too) but I wonder if as more women reach powerful positions, we'll see companies with a no-haggle policy where they simply offer what they are paying for the position and make clear up-front that it's their policy to make one, clear offer?

      I regret not doing research before getting some jobs in the past. I realized a lot of people in my same position made more than me. Now, I know to go to sites like Glassdoor- but those sites don't always help. I find that each job is different even if it has the same title, so solutions like are better than most because they match your personality type with the right job for you.
