Should you ever accept a promotion without receiving a raise? I feel like this a a scam that is happening lately where companies offer you an arbitrary title change. You get more responsibility but no compensation for it.

If you’re already planning on leaving I would take it. A higher level title never hurts on the ole resume.


Take the promotion (looks great on your resume) then leave. The higher title opens better doors.


No. I would never.


It depends on what responsibility that is. You may already be doing it anyway.


Ruuuuuuuun !

I wouldn't. That just seems like them getting you to do more work for free. You need to be compensated for it.

Hello all!

I am a 33 y/o single female that works in Louisiana for the state health dept. I really enjoy my job and the autonomy I have but am only making $55K/yr—however, I do not want to leave this job anytime soon due to being in the PSLF program. Negotiating pay with state government really isn’t a thing.

With all of this free time I have outside of my job that doesn’t bring much stress, I need help navigating a side hustle or remote job. (Continued in comments)

What should I do if I find out someone gets paid more than me? We work at the same company as contingent workers. We are both on a 6 month contract through two different contracting firms. I negotiated my salary and he did not, but he still makes 20% more than me. We were hired on the same day in the same position. I have a Masters and he has a Bachelors. I have more experience and responsibilities. Is the pay discrepancy from the company or our contracting firms? What should I do?

What is a reasonable base salary range for a Third Party - Risk and Compliance Analyst that works within the IT/Governance department? Thank you.

I’ve been at my current agency for shy of 4 years & in my current position for over a year. During yearly reviews, I was told my my raise was going to be 17%. Being high bc 4% was for my merit increase & the rest was to put me at “market value.” Before signing any paperwork, I found I out my company had been underpaying me, not even paying me NYS exempt threshold & they owed me back pay. I went to my back to manager & asked for a 27% raise. Should I have asked for more?
