Job Offer Negotiation: Joe Tech and Robust Routers
1. What do you expect to negotiate?
Leigh holds the legitimate power in the exchange between these two people. Although I believe that the contract offers Joe Tech a good starting deal which also allows him to get his foot in the door in order to work his way up to the position he wants, which is Business Development, he should negotiate the amount of money he will receive to move to Silicon Valley. Relocating is a time-consuming and expensive process and Silicon Valley is more expensive than Nashville as a place of residency, so the cost of living is higher.
2. What are you willing to exchange?
I think that although the position required is not the desired one, I am willing to accept the position and start out as Associate Product Manager in the Terabit Router Group because it is a foot in the door and a step onto the right direction. With hard work it is possible to move on up in the company and acquire the desired position in Business Development.
3. What are you willing to give up?
I think I would be willing to give up (at least for now) looking for a position in Business Development. I would take time to learn about the company and fully show my capabilities and wait for a position to be open. It is better to be “Power With” as opposed to “Power Over” because that will lead to a great relationship with the company which will hopefully help me in future promotions.
4. What items will need to be bargained in the job package and why?
I think I would take the deal as is. It is a great starting deal. It offers great bonuses, a great salary and benefits. I am trying to find something I am not happy with, but I honestly believe that it is a great starting deal to have right after college. It is important to never do an all-or-nothing deal so I think that this would be a good meeting place for both Leigh…...

...Sarah Richter – D00130751 HR595 – Negotiation Skills Assignment: Week 4 – Tactics Tutorial Analysis 08/09/2012 Using the Marilyn and Len exchanges, analyze the following: * What are the objectives of both parties in the exchanges? In the beginning Len and Marilyn’s objectives are distributive in nature. They both want the high-income accounts to be handled by their respective departments. The $5million in viable accounts are supposed to be handed over by Len to Marilyn’s department. Marilyn’s idea of the potential accounts is different than that of Len’s. Both parties want to maintain profitable accounts to ensure their teams’ commissions are not negatively affected by the change-over. * How would you describe the general "tone" of the exchanges? I would describe the general “tone” of the exchanges to be interest oriented. Most of the verbal interactions presented (especially in the first exchange) were substantive based, not relationship oriented. Both parties seem to have a personalization attached to the problem at hand and it seems that they are both worried about the outcome negatively affecting their personal and team results. * Were Marilyn's objectives on the way to being effectuated in the first exchange? I do not feel that Marilyn’s objectives were going to be effective in the first exchange. She approached the conversation regarding the accounts Len provided in a defensive manner which did not create a free flow of information. Len presented......

The salary conditions were a stumbling block for this particular exercise. With the knowledge of being the manager, I knew that I had other qualified individuals that could be offered the position. The scenario explained that RR already offered a high beginning salary for a new employee. I felt that someone fresh out of college did not warrant a higher salary. In general, I do believe that salary can usually be negotiated. For the majority of jobs (not retail, fast food, etc…), employers give a range of what the salary can be. For the federal government, salaries are usually locked in but you might be able to negotiate at what level you start. ▪ What other things are negotiable? ...

The Death of Joe

...present. ----BURNT NORTON Chapter One At that time, I saw Joe stand there, far away from us, despaired. No one could stop Old Joe from killing us. He came from the future, he had known what would happen thirty years later, and he must kill Sid to save his wife. Old Joe raise his arm, “I am sorry, but your son will became a devil, he must die now.” I shook my head, “Please, I will take him away from here; I will make him to become a normal person. Please.” “I am sorry,” Old Joe was ready to pull the trigger. It was impossible for Joe to save us; he was on the edge of the field, out of his blunderbuss’ firing range. But this time, just as Old Joe was pulling the trigger, a distant shot was heard. And Old Joe disappeared. Joe turned his blunderbuss back on himself and FIRED. I knew it was not the only choice of Joe, but the best. ----From Looper: Destined by Sara White 11th July 2044 The house stands on a slight rise just on the edge of a Kansas corn field near the highway. Not a remarkable house by any means-it is about thirty-year old, squatty, and squarish, made of brick, and had no furniture. The only thing in the house is an Indian ausan. It is about four o’clock in the afternoon. The sky is pregnant with rain. Now, there is a young man stand in the middle of the house, waiting before the dirty ausan.

Joe Tech Job Offer

...MKTG 4470 3/14/14 Joe Tech Assignment 1. What do you expect to negotiate? The job offer from RR, in its entirety. Perhaps the most important aspect of the negotiating the offer will be coming to an agreement on salary. According to, the average salary of the Silicone valley tech worker in 2010 was $104,195. Realizing that Joe Tech is a newcomer to the industry, he shouldn’t expect to make what the more seasoned tech workers are making. However, in light of his education and experience with the company, $88K is on the low side. Meeting in the middle at $96k would seem more fair and prudent. 2. What are you willing to exchange? If it comes down to it, Joe should give up an increased/negotiated signing bonus or relocation amount in exchange for an increase in the number of stock options that he will receive. 3. What are you willing to give up? For now, Joe Tech should consider giving up on the assignment for Business development. His experience lies with Product Management and the company has already demonstrated to him that it’s easy to move around once you’re established with the company. The experience that he will gain in product management will only serve to make him a more effective manager in the Business Development arena. 4. What items will need to be bargained in the benefit package and why? * Signing bonus. RR’s offer of $15K is certainly fair, considering the average range in Silicon Valley is $15-20K. Joe could ask......

From the case study, it is very clear that Trader Joe has become successful in creating a decent working environment for the employees in stores.

Trader Joe’s leadership style is employee friendly and thus he is being able to get the full commitment out of the employees. The employees need to feel that the company is giving proper importance to them and it is the responsibility of the organization to develop such a feeling in the mindset of the employees. Trader Joe has set a lot of examples of it. He allows all of his employees to taste the products and also gives them intrinsic and extrinsic rewards. These activities allow the employees to think them as important part of the company and give them the encouragement to give full commitment to repay the organization. Moreover, the employees have some certain demands and needs. (Cribbin, 1972) If the company can fulfill those demands and needs, the employees are happy and committed. Trader Joe knows that very well. The employees are satisfied as their psychological needs are fulfilled with decent salaries. Also their...

... 1 I. My role: I was cast as Joe Tech, a graduate student working towards his MBA. He is a smart guy whom had secured an internship from Robust Routers (RR), which is one of the leading computer hardware companies in the world. Normally students from his school are not recruited by this company due to it their school not being top tier, however he knew someone who could vouch for his character and capabilities. He then went through a series of interviews and landed the internship with no problem. Towards the end of his time with the company, he was notified that he was a top contender for permanent employment once he graduated. He, received a job offer from RR as well as offers from two other companies within the technological field upon graduation. However he was most interested in RR because they lead the market in technology and sales as well as being named in the top 50 U.S. companies to work for in major business magazine survey (Lewicki, Barry, Saunders, p. 563).

Tech TLF Panel survey conducted on behalf of kids clothing retailer found that four in five parents believe technology and gadgets are good for kids, aiding in their development. The study found that 37 percent of parents asked said that their child spent between one and two hours a day playing with tech gadgets, and 28 percent said between two- and three hours. Moreover, the study found that 38 percent of two- to five-year-olds own an Android tablet, and 32 percent own an iPad; almost a third (32 percent) of these kids also have a mobile phone. The reason behind all this gadget use: over a third of parents (35 percent) said they use tech gadgets to entertain their children because they are convenient, and nearly a quarter (23 percent) because they want their children to be tech-savvy. A 2015 survey of 1,000 British mothers of children aged 2 to 12 found that 85 percent of mums admit to using technology to keep the kids occupied while they get on with other activities. The survey pointed to children spending on average around 17 hours a week in front of a screen – almost double the 8.8 weekly hours spent playing outside. Wanting our children to tech-savvy is understandable, and the need to keep them entertained will also make sense to many a parent. But we must also weigh up the risks associated with children having too much screen time. In his lecture ‘Managing Screen Time and Screen Dependency’ Dr Aric Sigman argues that “whether it’s Facebook, the......

Gi Joe

...G.I. Joe has been a brand in the market for toys since its launch in 1964 with $3 billion in sales over the last 20 years, with 16% of the market share. Despite the brands success the GI Joe is positioned as a physical product, as appose to an all-encompassing brand and the toy market has volatile sales depending upon trends created by consumer demand. Hasbro is now challenged to take the G.I. Joe brand to the next level and market it in such a way that will allow the brand continues to thrive while preserving the brands legacy. One major issue facing G.I. Joe besides their competitor Barbie (Mattel) is that the industry has changed drastically in the last decade. The target customer for G.I. Joe is a shrinking market due to technologically savvy youths who prefer playing electronic games as opposed to playing with action figures. In addition, lifecycles within the industry are also getting weak, with 70% of sales belonging to toys released within the last 3 to 4 years. Manufacturers have also adopted a more short-term goal oriented strategy based on the creation of the “instant gratification” attitude among their target market. Retailers have joined manufacturers in shifting their strategies to focus on multipurpose department stores as the primary location to purchase toys, with the top five players comprising 75% of sales of toys in 2003. This has a major effect on one of Hasbro’s core strengths (see appendix) a unique relationship with retailers which is a key asset......
