I'll tell just about anyone who asks. I'll also tell, if I think telling will benefit me or them. The secrecy around pay benefits companies, generally hurts the employees. Anyone friend/ family who telling will hurt my relationship, aren't worth having a relationship with anyway.

Big advantage to discuss with your friends at work know so you can tell if any one manager shafts you. Don't let them divide and conquer

My parents, gf, and a few close friends know but my brother and extended family don't. I'm always careful not to stir up any jealousy by being very selective with who I share with

I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities. Now I’m back in consulting and miss the freedom of sales. Anyone in my position? I felt this way before quarantine too. The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?
