I'm doing L2 agent missions. I saw that the negotiation skill says: 5% additional pay for agent missions.

I trained this skill. For exactly one mission after training, I saw a boost to the agent pay, and after that nothing. How do I know? Well, the base pay always seems rounded off: 43000 or 55000 or something like that. If you add 5% you always get numbers that are not well rounded. The above would become 45150 and 57750 for instance. Like I said, I saw exactly one of these unrounded figures after training Negotiation and then they went back to being well rounded.

Sorry if this has been asked, but I can't find a search mechanism on this forum, and I looked back several pages manually for something.

Does anyone know if this skill is broken?

AFAIK, It works fine. I have it trained to 3 and i get all the bonuses. It may not say it in the Mission description, but check your wallet journal, the correct ammount should show up.

Negotiation gives you 5 EQ per level. This indirectly increases income.

You have to keep in mind that agent pay-out is part random, part statistical, and part base number. Some missions just generally pay better than others, but you won't get the same amount every time. I will say that I have noticed it works, and it does what it statistically should (increase effective quality by five points) at the very least. Keep in mind a lot of descriptions are cryptic or "laymen's terms" and should not be taken as the word of God all the time. Point-in-case being that this skill increases EQ, which in-turn increases payouts.

Best way to see, how great Negotiation works, is to works with R&D agents. you WILL notice the difference. :)
