For those of you who feel bad when your look at peers, please give yourself a break. Until now you didn’t know the ‘rules’ of the game and now you do. You are informed and can now proactively make choices.
As a more female dominated industry we are less likely to fight for comp to match our value, often that is because we don’t know our value.
What metrics are you driving in the business and without you how could they suffer?
Are you in charge of programs that retain employees? Say without you the company will lose 10 more employees a year and the average cost of replacement is 60K (all in including recruitment, lost productivity and onboarding)
Then you are worth 600K And say your replacement will only get to half your productivity this year, then your net value is 300K
We don’t live in the dark ages anymore- it isn’t asking for a raise, it is discussing a business partnership for mutual benefit.

The first person you need to convince you are worth X is you! If you can’t tell me what you are worth I will make up my own story.


Very well said.


I need help. I’m at a company right now that is very highly rated on culture, but I feel like they lied to me. My compensation for 10 years of recruiting experience is base: 95k, gratitude bonus (which is 10,000, but it’s prorated), no rsu….and I’m a top performer. I’m the top performing on our team and I’ve only been here for one year.

I started as contract and was swiftly promoted to fte because our team was quitting, and my old company wanted me to interview for FTE.

My problem is leveling and pay. My pay went down by 10/hr, and I’m at the same level right now as people coming in with maybe one year of experience as a recruiting coordinator.

I’ve won awards this year, but when I’m really one of the top people on our small team (and the third senior person due to everyone quitting), I feel like it’s not right. They won’t bump me to senior, my pay is extremely low for where I live, and now we’re in a hiring freeze. I feel like all my passion and hard work is for no reason, and I keep getting excuses as to why I’m this level, but it doesn’t make sense.

I feel crazy. Am I think I probably am for accepting FTE for so much lower, but I needed benefits. I love what I do, but I don’t trust my company anymore.

Honestly, I know I am way underpaid. Just not sure how to find the right place as I need to be remote due to family commitments.
