Hey fishbowl fam - I manage the revenue recognizing department at a solar company. It’s recently come to my attention that I may be being underpaid by about 10%. Id love to approach my boss with a more solid reasoning than that I know a peer with less responsibility is being paid more than me but am not sure where to start as it’s kind of a unique role. Any suggestions or salary comparisons available?

Build a case around why you believe you are worth a 10% increase in your salary. Comparing yourself to others does not work. Showing your own value will work if the company has a budget for a salary increase. If there is no budget at this time, ask what it is you can do to ensure that there will be a salary increase in your future very soon.

Additional Posts in Salary Negotiations

So I'm interviewing, have had loose salary conversation (talked about band but not specifics), and approaching the official offer stage. It's become clear the role is something I'm very well qualified for, but their pay expectations for the role are much lower than mine. How do I ask if there is (though from what I can tell there is not existing and we'd have to create) a higher level position in the team in a higher salary band I could take instead?

There might not be a good answer, but let me know your thoughts. This will be long so will continue in comments. I am a maintenance tech. I started with my company 1 year ago, was recently offered a 3% raise in my review contingent upon acquiring an HVAC cert. that they’re paying for. I currently make $20/hr. I have been told by everyone, including two people in corporate that after completing HVAC cert., I will get a $2 raise. At my review they said that was never an option.

Hi team !

I am changing roles within the same company in the next couple of weeks. I want to be ready for a negotiation of my salary. How far off would you think I’d be able to go?

My ideal would be 40% as I feel really underpaid right now and would like to aim quite high.

Problem is nobody addresses the salary topic over here so I’m having issues benchmarking.

Thoughts on the matter?
