  2. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    If indeed he comes back from vacation and isn’t forced to quit after a few days, I will tend to believe that the allegations are highly exaggerated, at the very least.
  3. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    Yep...pretty much I get due process but boy if it comes out to be true, this along with the Francesa/CMB mess WFAN's gonna look even more ridiculous.

    Were you nervous at all about the implied expectations it set for you? (Just now starting my second job after college)

  10. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    Carton was arrested by the federal government, which requires a lot more, a lot more evidence than filing a lawsuit, which basically requires no evidence at all. I haven’t followed what has happened beyond what’s in the article. My guess is that whoever filed the lawsuit has some kind of reputation one way or the other within the company and with the other female employees. If they speak up one way or the other, we’ll know a little more.

    It's not just public outcry and pressure. The female employees at WFAN I'm sure will be putting internal pressure on as well, especially if a lot of the frat house charges can be verified. Carton was fired immediately after his shenanigans, they didn't wait for due process. Sure it was a different kind of miscreancy, but the stuff that's being accused here is more of a hot-button issue over the last year or so in the news. And to top it off Benigno and Roberts were supposed to be doing an on-air broadcast from Yankee Stadium tomorrow for the Subway Series, they won't be able to hide him from people in 'public' with that or other on-site appearances outside the studio.

    Ugh, you guys are the worst. I'm an architect and every time I try to hire a kid out of school lately, I'm pretty sure they not only want the high salary, they want my office too.

    I got an extra $5k when I got my first job (which is still my current job) in a similar fashion. But I wasn't drunk and did it on the phone. lol.

    The bigger question is how do you get access to those stats.
  17. 2018 UFA Thread

    My first job out of college, I was drunk and negotiated a higher salary via e-mail. And got it. Their offer was $65k, which was pretty decent for an unlicensed architect. I was drunk and replied "I was looking for $80k for reasons x,y,z". Forgot about it, until the next afternoon I got a new offer at $73k + an extra week of vacation. When I was hired, my hiring manager said I'm the first person he's ever had negotiate a salary directly out of college. I was ready to say yes to their first offer....

    That's how its done, folks.
  19. 2018 UFA Thread

    Heh heh, I have a "select" group of customers who insist that whatever price I quote them on a job is "too high" by default. Real easy...I go higher than what I would for someone else, and when the bitching starts, I "come down" to the price that is fair to me (usually the one I had in mind all along), and have them thinking that I gave them a discount. But yeah, don't think too many savvy negotiators go in asking for exactly what they want. Ask for higher and hope to come close to the figure you had in mind.
  20. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    Didn't think of the bolded...sure, there will be prankish calls for a while, but if Joe's innocent, they'll die down.
  21. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    I mean, I kind of doubt that Joe Beningo is on the radar of MeToo activists. And I'll give the female on-air personalities (Maggie Gray and Erika Herskowitz) the benefit of the doubt that they won't reflexively start attacking him based solely on the accusations. I was thinking more of people just calling in and disrupting the show almost to be wise asses more than anything else.

    I negotiate for a living, and you never start negotiating at the figure you actually want. It's a matter of reaching a compromise. Pretty sure it works the same way in these negotiations.
  23. 2018 UFA Thread

    I was going to say exactly this. A wise man once told me, "you don't ask, you don't get". You ask for 7M assuming they will negotiate and meet you in the middle, at the 6M that you want/expect.

    I wouldn't give that to him as an RFA. I was thinking sign-and-trade.
  26. 2018 UFA Thread

    He's an RFA though. What's the compensation package look like for an offer sheet to an RFA in that price range? EDIT: First, Second, and Third round pick.
  27. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    Yes, this this THIS. Extremely unfair...I can understand suspensions pending investigations, but like you said, companies can buckle a little too easily. What's been lost here a bit is that the accuser is not going after just Beningo...she's going after a lot of parties, and claiming that there's shenanigans going on all over the place.
  28. Joe Benigno accuses of sexual harassment

    That's the thing. Way too many companies these days are firing first and asking questions later when it comes to these matters due to public outcry/pressure.
