What do I make? What does your colleague make in the next row of desks? How much is the going rate for a junior paid person?
I’ve always wondered these questions and more because 1) I don’t want to leave money on the table and 2) I’m hiring a few people this year and want to be more open about what we pay them. Company’s make salary a black box affair and that doesn’t help any of us.
I’ve been told more than a few times not to discuss what I make with others on the team, which was because we all got contracted out at different rates. The survey is anonymous. I’m going to make the results public for everyone to see and keep this transparent.

Salaries should be more open and if the industry won’t help, then we need to help ourselves. I’ve launched a salary survey for everyone working in paid*. Survey closes 29th, February 2016 at Midnight PST.
Paid = Performance Marketing, PPC, Paid Search, Paid Social: FB, Linked In, Twitter ads or Amazon Ads, Demand Generation roles and even those guys in Display.
