VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED:
SalaryMatters is NOT for everyone…
Our brand of honesty will tick some people off. And we’re PERFECTLY fine with that!
We’re offering you an opportunity to leave this site if…
- You brown-nose to get promotions
- You actually think that HR is your friend
- You’d rather complain about your career situation instead of taking action
- You’re some prick recruiter that asks for salary history
- You believe that your corporation has your best interest in mind
- You think that your manager holds the key to your career growth
Not long ago, I was the top performer with the lowest salary
About five years ago, I was in a career making about $55K a year—tirelessly working a job that was unfulfilling and uninspiring. I received numerous awards and accolades for my performance. But thanks to my friend in HR, I found out that I was THE lowest paid program manager within the entire organization. Worse, not only was I the lowest paid, my salary was 20% lower than the salary band for that role! How could I, as a top-performer, have a lower salary than my coworkers, all of whom I outperformed? Why am I not being paid within the salary band for this role? I was utterly clueless about how this happened!
And then I attended one HR leadership meeting and my life changed…
- My Coworkers’ Salary = $85K
- My Salary (5 yrs. ago) = $55K
