You’re not alone. I’ve been there. It eats you up inside and chips away at your mental health to be treated like you’re lesser than. For the sake of your sanity you should take some PTO and do some interviews. Take a break between jobs if you can, and please take care of yourself. You’ll get through this!

Hoping you can unplug this weekend and take a moment to regroup. That stuff’s never fun.

I am so sorry you are experiencing this. Not that this might help but you are not alone. I cry every morning when I know I have no choice but look at my email. About the pay- it can feel as a slap in the face. But, don’t measure your worth comparing you salary to other people’s salary. Compensation can be in part driven by negotiation which is an art. I get it - it’s unfair and feels humiliating. I heard somebody recently saying “learn to laugh at humiliation in the face”. Easier said than done - but it you embrace that you might start letting go of so much that hurt and causes stress. Sending you good vibes.

Don’t compare yourself and know you’re self worth. Take a step away. A weekend away from work. work does not define your worth. I literally cried myself to sleep every night and woke up feeling sluggish every morning cause I was paid less and lost all my self confidence because of a toxic manager. I finally had the courage to quit and started freelancing and finally feeling myself again.

Firstly how do you know about this salary out of interest ?? Secondly I think you should bring it up with your manager since you have more Snr duties your salary should be adjusted accordingly .. if you don't speak up nobody will do it for you. 🤗🤍

Totally - so we’re hiring for a role on my team and my manager said the range I was giving was too low (given my salary, it makes sense). They said it should be X through Y, and I said, uhhh Y candidly puts them above my base, to which they became flabbergasted. They're going to try and fix it but they said no guarantee. We'll see what they say!

Is this the flip side of salary transparency? It really sucks that your job brings you to tears!! Been there. It’s a good job market for design if you have the strength to job search. Wishing you well.

Honestly feel this as a coworker was recently promoted to my pay level and role but I’ve been doing the 10x the work. No promotion in my future either as “I’m still green” even though experience outweighs the physical time I’ve been there. Not the same situation exactly but can’t help but feel I should be compensated for all the work and commitment I’ve shown to the job and team.

I am doing UXR interviews, and although I read that a background in design isn’t necessary for UXR, I have been asked a few times now whether I have experience in design and can use design apps. I have applied research experience and a solid understanding of product development, which I think should land me a UXR role one day, but I’d to hear any thoughts though if you think design knowledge is necessary for UXR?

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide.
