#MartinLewis mine is public! https://www.jvt.me/salary/ I've recently blogged about what's happened in the year since posting it, too https://www.jvt.me/posts/2022/09/21/year-later-salary-history/
Earlier this year we announced a pilot scheme where participating employers list salary details on job adverts and stop asking about…

What I've learned in the year since posting my salary history publicly.
We humans tend not to share everything. Among the best kept—and probably most lied on—secrets is our salary, yet we still have the irresistible urge to brag and to compare. I was all the more …(https://brainbaking.com/post/2022/08/how-much-do-you-earn/)

Management: “We need a rigorous process for managing and approving pay rises, occurring once per year.” Employees: *Apply for a new jobs because it’s quicker and easier than following the pay rise process.* Management: “Why is our churn rate so high!?”

I'm researching Meta's engineering culture in-depth. An interesting principle at Meta: compensation and career progression are separate. You can make more when not promoted, than those who are. (If you work/worked at FB/Meta and are interested in reviewing what I have, DM me).

This should be the new rule: Before arranging a job interview always ask for the salary range If they won't tell you, don't do the job interview
I know I know, don't shame the victim BUT Do not start interviewing without knowing the range for the position. I always ask them first if it's not already stated. I don't have calls before that. They don't want to disclose? Skip it.

It’s still employee musical chairs in tech and this is your periodic reminder to never ever accept the argument “well stock is part of your pay. Use that to meet what needs the salary can’t cover”. That’s the company screwing you.

New rule: if a job posting says anything along the lines of “this is a remote job except that it is not eligible to be performed in Colorado”, 🚩🚩🚩 (This is not me looking for a job, I am happy where I am at. But we need to lay down some rules)

Two things I keep in mind. RSUs are potential money with risk. Options are the Schrödinger’s cat of money and are more likely to be worthless than not. If you’re new to offers with these things as part of comp, it’s good to be aware of. They won’t pay your rent.twitter.com/vicvijayakumar…
Post detailsThis is the flip side of what can happen if you accept a job at which a huge portion of your total compensation number is stock. Your $100K in RSUs granted in March 2021 are now worth $20K and they don’t even vest for two more months.

This. Never ever take an offer that’s so low on cash salary and accept the argument that equity is ‘part of pay’. It is. But base salary is what’s supposed to pay your living expenses.

Getting more messages along the lines of "I like my company, they treat me well, but I got an offer with a 50-200% pay increase as a sr software engineer. I'd feel guilty leaving." You now know your market value. You can offer them to stay for XX% less than this value.
Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz)Sun, 09 Jan 2022 07:25 GMT
The % discount will vary on things like the mission, your career prospects etc. You could say “I’m fine taking a 30% cut from my market value: but not more.” It can be negotiation grounds for equity & others. No one benefits from you keeping your market value a secret.

i did NOT make plans i uprooted my life instead but here in ldn i don’t think the change from 65 to um… substantially more than 65 has sunk in yet, it was during the pando and im still watching life passing by & seeing numbers in my bank apps go up despite the daily ubereats

No. Women who are more agreeable are more favorably considered. I’ve been ghosted when I ask for paybands, and when I’ve tried to negotiate in the past. That taught me to accept what was offered and deal with being underpaid or else I might not be employed at all.twitter.com/abyteofcodeale…
But I also think that in most cases, women end up having a lower salary in tech not because the hiring team has something against women, but because on average women are more agreeable than men. I'm open to having my mind changed on this though with a study.

Talking about compensation with your coworkers is so important. If I hadn’t done it I wouldn’t have realized how underleveled and underpaid I was on my old team, nor made joining my new team conditional on making progress towards fixing that.

I know holding out through terrible work conditions to officially reach your bonus can be enticing, but remember to account for what you're losing while you wait. Once you've accounted for that, compare that to your estimated bonus to see if it's truly worth it.

Job hop all you want, kids, even if the job you currently have feels "okay". You don't have to be miserable to do it. Companies are seriously missing out on retaining talent because they're more willing to pay a new hire way more than before, which is BONKERS for retention??

A writeup of my lightning talk at Tech Nottingham about my salary post.
It's Lighting Talks at #TechNott tonight, which is always a super fun evening - I'll be talking about #salary and some of the Korma-level spice that's come out of my post about it last month https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/09/09/public-salary-history/
Absolutely! I've had great feedback since posting mine publicly https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/09/09/public-salary-history/
Normalise talking about your salary with friends.
