Dan Springer, CEO of Responsys, provides counter-intuitive advice to young people by suggesting that when starting your career you should negotiate for the lowest possible title and salary at the organization of your choice. Although Springer provides this advice light-heartedly, he does so to emphasize the importance of setting up a situation in which you can exceed expectations and can rise to the top. In addition, he warns about the dangers of negotiating to hard for higher salary or positions which potentially make organizational members uncomfortable or lead to expectations that are difficult to meet.
