When negotiating compensation at a new company, new role, should I tell them (or omit) what I make now?

I think it’s arbitrary and discriminatory to base future comp on past comp the new comp should be based on the responsibilities of the new position and what you were getting before I think is of no relevance

I can’t imagine that it won’t come up during negotiations. I personally never had a new job where my new employer didn’t ask about my previous salary. But I guess if it’s not asked, you don’t have to disclose or only disclose if it’s at your advantage.

Personally, I’ve never discussed specific previous compensation when negotiating new compensation. I prefer to frame the conversation in terms of the value I bring to the new role. I’ve also never had someone ask about previous compensation either.

Anyone else really impressed w/ Cuomo of how he's handling NYC? Love the directness of his approach & how well he articulated his plan of action. No masks-let's sew some! No sanitizer-let's make some!
