Uh-oh--failure to communicate?


People lie. Have I mentioned that before? Marygrace Ohab of HR Choice relates an instance in which a person accepted a set of perks and took a job and when the written offer came, those perks were not in it.

Drat.

The would-be employer also balked at putting them in. What to do…

Ohab says the discussion needs to be clear—but that employers also lose if an employee comes onboard and is not happy.

First, look at what they are offering. Are the salary and benefits in line with your experience?

Can you live without those perks?

Schedule a meeting—something may have changed. But you can start a negotiation—give some, get some. Or they may want you to drop out, it happens. Get a feel for it.
