Is there anything that can be done about salary caps? Is this practice set in stone? I'm a pharmacy technician.

Tech here! In my e experience, it depends on the area. If you move around, you can make a few more $/hr. Retail is the lowest paid. Infusion and sterile environments make more. I'd also suggest trying different companies that offer more opportunities for growth. (Insurance companies like United Health Group, Carefirst, CVS, Humana, etc.

Retail is torture at it's finest! I got out of there as quickly as I could.

In my experience, promotions are the easiest hack for getting around salary caps.

Promotions or horizontal job changes are two ways around salary caps. I'd consider looking at a different company if you've truly hit a salary cap where you're working right now.

I don't think so..I'm a pharmacy technician in retail and just reached cap myself. It freaked me out and I've being sending resumes out and interviewing since then. Except u change role or something nope, nothing to be done.

I started in a compounding pharmacy, and switched to hospital after finding out a tech I was training was making more than me. Even though I have my sterile and non sterile certs and Cpht license and they did not. I’m getting 3 dollars less because of lack of experience than the original posting I applied for, but have a better opportunity to grow my rate.

What’s going on FB friends,

I am contemplating a move to industry working at a VC, Tax Director role east coast. Looks like it will be primarily overseeing compliance with some aspect of advising on structures etc. There is another tax reporting head above me.

The potential comp is the low 200k with a 10% bonus (still higher than what I am making). I feel this is pretty low for VC standards but maybe my standards are also too high. I have generally seen 25% bonus with carry.

Any thoughts?
