and im starting to feel really bad because i feel like i could have gotten more money
when i was told what the salary range was i got 5k above what they said because that was my offer but when i looked online at glassdoor and other sites it has the average starting salary of my position as 5k MORE than what i got.
i feel pretty bummed, in the end it is over a 25k raise but still feel like i left money on the table
this was my chance to get more. i just dont know why both the hiring manager and the HR guy both told me the range was 5-8k less than what i got so i felt like i was getting a good deal.
no i didnt but heres what i do know. i know the guy whose place im taking and he got promoted. when i told him what i got he kind of act surprised and said my hands were tied because the company im coming from, they knew what i made.
just feel bummed. i hate to be all about the money but i could have gotten more
