I am about to get an offer from a company, and they asked me to tell them first if I have any requirements, like a minimum salary, or any other requirements regarding the whole compensation package.
The thing is, I know the salary of a friend who was hired by this company, and his whole compensation package. In game-theoretic terms, I know private information about the other player.
How should I negotiate then? Do the classic negotiation rules -like asking for more than what you want- apply here? Should I simply ask the same as my friend?
Two more things, that might be relevant to the question: 1. This is my first job. 2. The offer is following a speculative application.
