Found out people in my position are making 20-50k more than me and I have more years of experience and graduate degree. Should I leave or ask for more money? I’ve only been with the company 6 months.

I think if you bring it up, the position on the company side would be it doesn’t matter or none of your business what others are making. If you can move company easily, that’s an option, if you hang on until your probation is over or you’re permanent you’ll be in a stronger position. But you’ll need to go at it from what value you bring and what you’ve completed/done in the role rather than what others are making.

They obviously negotiated better than you

Start looking

Leave, they'll never give you that big of a bump. You have to leave or get an external offer for that and why stay if they are okay with that kind of discrepancy

Start looking, but you should still try to negotiate with your current company. Your case seems fairly clear so the conversation with management/HR should be simple.

Do you enjoy the work/company otherwise?

If no, obviously jump ship for more $$ + a chance to find something that’s a better fit for you. If you otherwise want to stay, the easiest route is to get an external offer and leverage it to get a pay increase. It’s unfortunate that the system works this way but the cleanest way to force their hand is to show in explicit terms what your market value is.

Very much so. The WLB is incredible. Insanely supportive management. I love the work. I have quite a few YOE so recruiters on LinkedIn are constantly contacting me offering those higher salaries and it’s tempting.

Folks, need some advice here. I got my hike letter at Unilever and it looks like the hike is only on the basic salary (as per the letter) and not on entire fixed (basic + hra + other).

I feel I have been low balled because I took the offer last year being convinced that another hike was on the way. Should i have a conversation about this with my Manager?
