I can’t make anymore money at my current job, because I’ll make more than an IT Dept. manager.

As you well know that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

Just got a promotion from level 3 to level 4 Security Analyst (highest sub manager position), but the promotion only came with a $4 / hour raise (7%, or less than inflation) as there is a corporate policy that states that an employee cannot make more than a manager in the same functional group.

Oo, HR policy bullshit! Congrats on the promotion and good luck on the job hunt mate, no reason to stick around anymore huh.

level 2

^ warm the resume up and start pushing it out.

level 2

Not going to lie... I've thought about quitting an honestly, very curious, but Ive been here forever and we are criticality short staffed already. If I left, I fear that my new boss would lose his job, and the very few people who work under me (very green) would have no tutelage. It could literally crater a department for a non-profit.

level 1

We have techs/analysts that make more than their manager. It's done so that good techs don't feel obligated to take on a management role. Some people are very capable technically and that doesn't always translate into good leadership.

level 2

It was a reason why I acted in an interim manager position recently.

level 1

The manager should ask for a raise so they can pay their people more. Win-Win

I have a guy who reports to me who makes $50k more a year than I do. I hired him. My CEO had concerns that I was going to offer him more than me, and I said IDK. I want the best person for the job.

I also just hired one guy for $x/yr and I will probably offer a new guy more tomorrow, who should be reporting to guy who makes $x/yr. The new guy is getting about $x + 75k/yr.

I can’t help it, those are market rates for the position. But I don’t care if someone makes more than me. You won the skills lottery, congrats. I need people who are really good at what they do.

I've seen this in local government before too. It's all pre-structured out, but one of the ceilings is that managers are supposed to make more than the people they manage, so the ceiling is the ceiling.

level 1

Congrats, but if you want to get paid more, you should probably move on… All the best!

level 2

Its not about the money, but I do need more, especially with this inflation, and a large family to feed.

level 1

To be honest, a seven percent raise sounds pretty good generally speaking. Not a lot of places I’ve seen do that much.

That being said, maybe it’s time to look at a manager position if you like the company. Otherwise, good lick on your next job hunt 😉

level 2

7% with a promotion is quite poor though…

level 1

Ask to see the policy, or better have your boss do it if they're supportive. I've found HR often works on folklore and they aren't prepared to deal with the rigor of a good security analyst's interrogation.

If they are really going to let someone unrelated to you constrain your salary, walk. Use your days to look for new work. You'll have a job before they catch on.

level 2

I did see the policy... It's in our online policy library signed by CHRO.

level 1

Post the resume and see what you get from other places.

They are taking advantage. If they lose their funding, or the business lost money, I doubt they would hesitate to kick you out.

level 1

Thats fucking asssssssssss.

In closing, you know, I just wanted to mention that camDown is the maximum in security for you and your loved ones and that's the the real deal!
