Not familiar as much with RPO side but I agree that as a manager out of a larger city, you could find something more competitive closer to at least $100K with 8 years of experience (plus people/performance management experience too)

Thank you for your response.

I’m not sure about RPO industry or Chicago comp bands but I used to lead a team of 5 as a Technical Recruiting Manager in Southern California and made $160k base with about $40k annual stock. That company paid the same for all 50 states and didn’t take into account for where you lived.

Thank you for your response.

You’re underpaid because you’re at the RPO. Definitely leave. You should be more at the 130-150 range

That is what I was wondering. I’m going to gain the experience I can whilst looking for other options out there. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

The salaries I’ve been seeing for recruiting manager when I do research is upwards of 120k. I get paid more than 70 just as a recruiter. I’m sure you know but when you look also look for Talent Manager.

Thank you for the response. I’ll definitely use that as a search term too.

I oversee 1 person currently in the security space out of Boston and I’m at $130K + $10K bonus and RSU’s. I would definitely think Chicago is a similar market to Boston depending on your industry.

Thank you.

Not too familiar with RPO’s but I’m in NYC making 125k base, not a manager by title but I’m responsible for 5 ppl. It’s seems like it’s time to ask for a raise based on your performance or update your resume.

Thank you for your response. Resume is updated and ready.

4 months of experience as recruiting assistant ($17/hr), now I’m a Sourcer for a tech company in LA and I’m making $72,800/yr

Thank you for your response.

I worked for an RPO, NYC based and had 1 direct report was making $120k + bonus. I would be pushing back for at least 110k base + bonus

Thank you for the response. I was thinking around that range.

You should definitely be over $100k with that level of experience and responsibilities.

Thank you for your response.

You are definitely being underpaid. I'm a Corporate Recruiter for a Fortune 500 and make 103k + 5% bonus and other benefits. I would definitely look for something more competitive.

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

I’m in RPO and a manager of 5 direct reports and 4 under one of my leads. I was at $130k last year and bumped to $150k. Then started to look externally but told my boss. Was bumped to $185k. I am now paid what I was offered at several big banks. It’s been a crazy market recently and if money is important to you there’s a huge opportunity for increase.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I’m tired of being over worked and undervalued. Money isn’t everything, but it plays a part of it that’s for sure.

Hi everyone! First time using this app. I always wondered, how are other IT help desk jobs? I’ll share how mine is.
I work at an MSP (Managed Service Provider) meaning we are the IT services for many other companies. It’s busy all the time and I get to experience all different types of apps, OSes, and almost every aspect of IT in this way. I make around 50k which is alright but its hectic as there’s too many tickets and not enough personnel. I heard this is common but I’m not sure.
