"I am incredibly grateful to the thorough, professional, and, yes, thoughtful approach that The Thoughtful Co has provided me in not only salary negotiations but also in helping see different perspectives on major career decisions. They helped me not just with tips on negotiation but such a detailed view of the market that I was able to go in to all conversations with deep confidence. The Thoughtful Co is providing services that I wish I had access to early in my career - it would have changed the way I advocated for myself and how I coached other women to advocate for themselves. I know I'll work with them again in the future and could not more highly recommend The Thoughtful Co."

"One thing I've learned is to not fake expertise when you can just talk to an expert. I was excited about my job offer but hadn't negotiated a new job in years. The Thoughtful Co helped me understand the questions to ask, where to push, how to think about private company stock options. They listened to my needs and applied their expertise to help me make sure I was getting what was fair. As important, The Thoughtful Co made me feel more confident with this big life decision. I highly recommend The Thoughtful Co."
