Underpaid :(

Recently, I had to look through quite some resumes and speak to the headhunters to hire some new product specialists (tis just a nama glamour for medical sales people :p). The more I looked, the more depressed I got!!

I am soooooooo BLOOOOODDYYY U-N-D-E-R-P-A-I-D!!!!

I guess recesssion is not applicable to the medical & healthcare industry if so many companies are still hiring and all the candidates are still asking for such high salaries. From what I see, the only way I can get anyone good (and I have no intentions to get crappy people for my own team) I need to outpay myself!

Hmmm, maybe I should apply to work for myself in order to get a raise!!

I also know that the other manager is getting higher pay than me!! And his workload is even less. Unfair! Unfair!

The only reason I am still here is because my direct boss is such a dear. She is a true rarity, a good boss is such an endangered species these days. I think my company knows that, that's why they think they can pay us (who are under her) crap because we have her to hang on to.

Maybe it's time to step out of our comfort zone to find out what we're really worth... and get paid what our work is TRULY worth.
