TB noticed my overall mien of rage this morning and took me out for a coffee whereupon i confessed why i was in such a snit. i know he is not responsible for my remuneratoin, so i have no issues with him. he understood and mouthed some platitudes about how pleased he is with me & how if i keep up the standard i might receive another increase in 6 months (gee maybe i will be at the same level as super-wonder-button-pushing-boy!)
i really question whether those at batshitcrazyorg have any idea what the going rate is for similar roles “out there” (for both mine and the swbpb’s**). it is not the money itself i care about – more that my professional pride is wounded. i was happy working for batshitcrazyorg because i believe in the type of organisation it is. but that was when i believed *everyone* was paid a equally as pathetically. to find out that this was not so was quite a shock.
so i will be actively looking for opportunities elsewhere.
