Has anyone felt that there is a significant difference in salary between an American employee and an international employee (any company, same role)?

H1B salaries are usually comparable but also locked as they are tied to paperwork submitted to the DOL. In most cases expect a H1B to be laid a little less than a US citizen because of the additional hassles and expense to sponsor the employees paperwork.

D1 - my FB title is misleading. I’ve been through the H1-B route for my greencard and in my case I was always underpaid. Even as a hiring manager I’ve seen H1 salaries to be on average a little less than citizens or GC’s given the reasons I listed earlier.

That's a wide open question there buddy

I believe that’s the reason for the post P1. To determine the gap, all else being the same.

Of course

Depends on role and company.

I accidentally found out that my colleague who is a citizen earns almost 25K more than I do for the same role and position.. I think that the difference was probably just based on the fact that they had switched a lot of jobs and obviously negotiated better salaries v/s I was stuck in a job I didn't enjoy for 3 years coz I couldn't get through the lottery

And for that very reason (freedom of job movement), most non-H1B people will demand pay raises and promotions. Most H1B people simply want to make sure their job is safe and their greencard is processed. This creates an unbalanced relationship with the employer who will continue to have the upper hand for the term of the H1B’s GC processing. I made an almost 40k jump as soon as I got my GC and was able to switch jobs!

Yes!!! Totally makes sense. I agree with the fact that GC/Citizenship makes switching jobs easier and each job change is accompanied by a pay hike. Boomeranging also seems to have an impact. I really wish things were that easy on H1.

Definitely not in MBB though. Salaries are the same for everyone at the same role.

Same at Deloitte too!

No salaries are not the same for folks at the same level at Deloitte. There is a huge pay band for salaries at each level
