The NYC salary law showed me that I'm in the lowest possible salary for the mid-level bracket. I don't believe this is deserved. How do I bring this up to my manager?


In my company:

Mid Level SWE Salary is 130k -175k

Senior is 175k - 215k

This would mean that right now, I'm at the lowest possible salary of 130k. Been with the company for more than a year, and I've taken on extra work/responsibility and evolved the platform, and taken on projects in ways that show that I'm worth more than 130k/year

How do I bring this up with my manager?

Having been someone who has tried to broach the “I’m not paid what I’m worth” convo my experience has been simply to get a job somewhere else. I’ve tried to justify it to employers and debatably did justify it. In EVERY case I only got a raise by going elsewhere and then watching the company have to pay 2x what they did for me and still crash and burn.

Get a competing offer then give them an ultimatum if you enjoy working there. It really is that simple minus technical interviews.

Ultimately I think employees in general greatly overestimate their employer wanting to keep them employed. There is absolutely zero labor shortage, there is simply a shortage of employers willing to pay what people want. It is what it is.
