    "Under Pao's leadership, Reddit has also begun asking candidates to talk about their thoughts on diversity. Pao told The Journal that Reddit "did weed people out" based on their answers."

    You will like what we give you and you will only like what we like. What a wonderful organization.

      What does that even mean? I'm sure nobody in there said "Oh, diversity is a terrible thing". So what kind of questions are they asking in order to weed people out.

    She says that men are better at negotiating, and women get punished for trying (without any proof to back up these claims, of course). So, essentially, using her own logic, if men are better at something, then nobody should be allowed to do it. you know... for equality!

      Up next -- "Alright men, we replaced all the urinals with toilets. If some of us have a hard time pissing standing up, none of us will." j/k

        it would surprise no one. remember, she was the one who just lost that sexual discrimination lawsuit against her former employers. the judge threw her case out, saying that it was clear that she was denied her promotion because she was obviously not very good at her job, lol. it was a big scam, anyway.

        how she became ceo of reddit is an altogether different scandal and controversy, but i don't even want to go into that. a quick google search will get you started. she is just awful.

    I work for government. There is no negotiating salary. Everyone at a certain range makes the same amount, whether you are man or woman, gay or straight, left handed or right handed. I understand the difference between public and private sector, but I don't see why it couldn't work the same in private sector.

      The problem is there is a heck of a lot more competition with the private sector and companies that don't allow for negotiation can put themselves in a difficult position when seeking new talent. I think that would be the most difficult problem to over come as long as the "free market" continues unchanged.

    "We come up with an offer that we think is fair. If you want more equity, we’ll let you swap a little bit of your cash salary for equity, but we aren’t going to reward people who are better negotiators with more compensation."

    Isn't that the WHOLE POINT of negotiating? Oh, well.
