Named one of the most admired CEOs by the Los Angeles Business Journal, He is also Entrepreneur in Residence for the City of Los Angeles Topics from this show: What's the state of the job industry today and what does it mean when people talk about transparency in pay and workplace culture? Quote from Jasons blog: “When an entrepreneur starts a company, the culture is a reflection of her personality. And in it’s formative years Culture is simply a function of those early employees. Fast forward and large organizations try and make culture a pyramid of ideas that fit on posters and an arms race of perks vs their competitors. But those are paper & plastic symbols. Culture is always people. It’s the values, work habits & personalities of the people servicing the product and customers.” Is creating a culture simply a matter of hiring the right people? What is the future of company culture…? It seems to be tech company driven...will large companies ever learn? What are some dos and don'ts of salary negotiating listeners should know about? A lot of people talk about pay gap -- is it real and if so, how do women need to negotiate differently than men? Other than salary, are there other benefits people should negotiate for? (Paid time off, flex schedule, equity, perks, etc) What wisdom can you impart for millennials and first-time job seekers in terms of negotiation power? Do they have any?
