Balancing the Pay Scale: ‘Fair’ vs. ‘Unfair’

Wed, 2013-06-12 11:20

Whether you are a shelf stocker at Walmart, a second-year associate at a consulting company, or an equity analyst at an investment bank, you may feel that you are not adequately compensated for the work you do; in other words, you are underpaid. But underpaid relative to what? How do employers determine compensation levels, and what consequences can these decisions have for an organization?

Mon, 2013-03-18 11:26
