I’m facing the reality that getting promoted or changing jobs within my current company will either keep me at my current salary(maybe with a bonus) or bump me to the bottom of my new role’s salary band. Has anyone faced something similar and been able to find a workaround to get paid adequately?

Being underpaid after a promotion is the catch 22 of corporate loyalty. People coming in from the outside will always get paid more than internal promotions. The key to overcome this is to get a competing external offer but you have to be prepared to actually leave for that to work in negotiations.

If you want to stay with said company, then get an offer to go somewhere else and negotiate for a raise. If it’s unsatisfactorily low, then take the outside offer and ✌️

That was just my experience though.

You have to get a competing offer, and that only works if they play ball with that sort of thing.

I don’t understand. How would getting promoted keep you at the same comp without a guarantee of a bonus? Tiktok / bytedance sounds like a confusing company to work.
