What are people’s opinions on sharing your salary with your partner? We didn’t come on together but get along great. I think I’m on the low end of my title range, and am wondering if they are too.

My partner came in from somewhere else and makes 12k more than me (I moved up internally). I’m glad I know. If we get promoted together I expect us to be equal. We talk honestly about it.

Talking about salary is a good thing.

Don’t talk about it. It’s better not knowing You need to prove you’re worth what you’re being paid. Just because someone makes more than you is not a reason to get paid more.

I say ask, but be prepared to be disappointed. I’ve had this happen and we both got raises and we all discussed it, and they never gave me the 10k more to match what he made from
When we both started.

I was always honest with my partner and we talked about it as well

here's a life hack: knowing someone makes more than you will never make you resent them when you realize that it's not their fault, it's your boss's fault.

Thank you guys! All good things to take into consideration. We are at the same level but he has been in the game a year or so longer so I anticipate it will be different (with rationale). Thanks again!

Hey guyss ! So I’m a freight broker for a start-up company making 50k base with a $800 bonus every month.

Do you guys know of any other companies that are in the same or similar industry that pays more. The benefits are more than fine but I don’t make commission and it behooves me how I make the company an extra 10-20k a week but don’t see anything off it really.

I went through a few interviews with the Deloitte Cybersecurity for a manager role. I've been in more senior roles at competing firms. Initially I said no thanks, but after the 4th call they made an initial offer at the top pay of the manager salary range and sent me a link to the application form. It's a 20% pay bump for me. So the question is should I take a demotion for 20% pay bump? Or counter with a lateral move? Is it even possible to negotiate a higher level after interviews are done?
