Welcome to The Salary Chronicles, where we’re bringing transparency to negotiation and salaries, one story at a time. We ask women to share their experiences negotiating their salary and what their advice is for others doing the same. We share these stories anonymously so they feel comfortable speaking as openly and as freely as possible.
This week we’re speaking with a woman prioritized the benefit of telecommuting so much, she almost undervalued herself in her job search.
Title: Director of Product Strategy
Original salary: $103K
New salary: $118K + 15% bonus
What was the situation?
I had been working at a company for a couple of years, and while I really enjoyed it, the commute was brutal. I commuted 3 hours each day and that left me with a really limited amount of time to spend with my kids. I was a strong employee so the company let me experiment with working from home, but I knew it wasn’t a long term solution. I felt disconnected from my co-workers in the office and had trouble actively participating in meetings when I called in. I knew that if I wanted to make my telecommuting permanent while not impeding my career progression, I needed to find a company that had a virtual workforce, rather than try to be effective as the one employee who worked from home.

Raymond James’s John Freeman reiterated a Market Perform rating on the stock:
he 2017 production guidance range of 890-910 Bcfe compares to RJ/Street at 892/893 Bcfe, respectively. Capex guidance of $1.175-1.275 billion was 18% above Street at $1.04 and 13% above RJ $1.08 billion. The production growth implies the company is taking the middle road of their previous growth scenario whereby $1.25 billion/yr of capex thru 2018 translates to an 8-12% CAGR. However, in 2017, the guidance range implies 2-4% growth y/y. Exit-to-exit, SWN is expecting 20% growth vs the Street at 14%.
Southwestern shares are down more than 32% since the start of the year.
