Personal example

I can personally attest to the value of negotiation. I was recently able to negotiate an additional $50k/year in cash + RSUs at a BigCo.

It has nothing to do with code or my ability to contribute, but negotiating is one of the highest ROI activities I have ever done, despite objectively sucking at it!
