Some people are on visas so they don't have that many options. Visa transfers to new employers are pretty tough, and if you're an international transfer then you're s**t out of luck.

Hey OP - you can like your job and your team and not want to leave your firm and STILL be dissatisfied with your comp/recognize you’re underpaid. They’re not MECE, honey

I mean it’s just ignorant to know you’re getting underpaid and be okay/complain about it. Obviously it’s not that much of a big deal or you’d leave

Yes it’s an easy solution but people don’t want to leave every two years, and they like their team/company. Companies should do better adjusting homegrown talent’s salaries

A lot of firms are transitioning from pay bands to set levels, which helps, but outsiders are still being brought in at higher seniority levels than they deserve. Ex. I’m at a boutique and because MBA salaries went up so much, anyone at that C2 level got a pay bump to match, so everyone with that title/level is equal
