Director, maybe they were wary of a place only paying half of what they were worth

Good luck. Though I'd be weary of any place doubling my salary.

Coming back here to let you know you were right. Worst months of my life. I’m somewhere else now luckily, where I am happy.

D1, I was very underpaid for my position. Salary increases were a joke. And I did not have to provide any details about my salary when interviewing.

Just be eyes wide open that you are likely paid a distress rate at 50% increase. Companies do anything when they are in distress. The operative word is distress.

Coming back to this now. You were right, wow. That was the most miserable experience of my life. Glad to be somewhere else now where I’m happier.

It was Mediacom NY btw. I worked through 11pm most nights, was in a constant state of stress, expected to be available and checking my email 24/7, made zero friends, and had no support and learned nothing. Fuck that place

Same! I doubled mine with a new offer.

OP: I have a similar pay jump in my past and it was the best move I’ve made. Not only am I no longer grossly underpaid (and constantly annoyed by the fact) but the work/agency is leaps and bounds ahead of what I was doing. I hope the same proves true for you. Good luck!

@director1 why!?

Good for you

And you’re in analytics

What was your position and salary before?

Providing that information would be a bit revealing

SVP, it’s a normal competitive salary for an analytics manager. I just was being paid well below. The new company has no insight into what I was making previously

Damn! Where are you going to?
