Anyone feel like they’re overpaid? I should not be making as much as I am for my level of experience/value creation. Tech is such a joke and bubble.

You think you're overpaid but you're not. You just don't know what value you bring. Whatever it is that they're paying you, you best believe they're getting more out of it than what they're throwing at you (either now or in future value). Otherwise they wouldn't be paying you. Capitalism 101.

This one I don't know all the reasons, but all I can say is that that by large teachers are paid with public funds. So looking at the cuts to education funding over the years, and the fact that this seems to not be a will or top priority no matter the administration in place, it's no surprise that we end up in this predicament. There are lots of private schools for example where the pay is much better and that benefit greatly from help that should go to public schools imo.

I wish I had that problem, I am in the opposite boat. My recommendation for you is to find how and where you can bring added value to your role, department, and company to makeup for the overpayment you feel that you are receiving.

RM I pay myself last. Most of my employees get paid more than I do. I get stock, which I hope - but can’t guarantee- will be converted in future

I feel overpaid but then I see people on this app in my field with 2 years of experience out of college making way more than I did at that stage so maybe I’m not overpaid? Lol.

Oh also if they had to pay an outside firm to do my job it would cost them 2-3x my salary. That’s my other justification :)

I'd love to have your problems!

Overpaid for my title? Yes.
Over experienced/responsibilities added since hired are now misaligned.
Hard to find the next step up externally that isn’t a lateral step in comp but a promo in title that isn’t big tech/oil/aerospace etc…
I like my current role enough not to jump ship just for a title bump

What’s easy for you might be impossible for someone else. Difficulty is relative.

what kind of product are you a PM for and how established/developed is your company?

There was a time in my previous employ that I used to. Until I realized just how little work the owner did and just how much they were making off everyone’s backs.

Sometimes, but then you meet someone underqualified and realize most of the world really is that stupid

I had a client presentation today. In my head, I thought that I did really bad and I was really nervous while presenting. My self talk afterwards was all negative. I had recorded it and was even dreading going back and listening to how poorly I performed because I thought it would further destroy my confidence. But I decided to do it anyway and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I thought when I listened to it from a 3rd party perspective. Just thought I'd post this. (Contd)

Has anyone considered becoming a real estate agent just to save on those RE agent fees? If you do just one transaction per decade for yourself, seems like you'll still do better even considering ongoing TREB/OREA/brokerage fees.
