Incredibly underpaid. I was ~$90k first year manager salary in a very low COL Midwest city. I am in risk assurance, but the difference shouldn’t be that much more

Yes. I make that much now.

Why did you agree to this? Lmfao

Thank you all.

What have your performance ratings been like? This is fairly consistent with my M1 salary in a similar COL city.

M2 high performer, above peers.

OP - what was your actual percentage raise? I am in a similar situation/similar sized city and your post scares me.

I was making that as a S1, as a Senior 3 now, hit the century mark (Risk Assurance - High cost of Living)

Yes

I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
