On The Earning Potential of a Liberal Arts Degree

@Gef the Talking Mongoose That's great! One of the things I was trying to say is that liberal arts majors get a lot of grief for studying something "impractical," but it's not a limiting degree—they can go on to work in plenty of fields.

On WWYD: Should I Be Upset Because a New Hire is Getting Paid the Same Salary as Me?

I guess the crux of what I was saying was that the only thing you can control is what you make, and that it's important to arm yourself with as much information as possible about what you should be earning so you can walk away from salary negotiations feeling happy. From what I could tell from the letter, the company provided the writer with a role and benefits she was happy with and with a salary she was also happy with—to the extent that she didn't ask for more money. (Which is a mistake that I've also made, accepting an offer I thought sounded good without realizing that I could have asked for more.) It seems like this company treated the LW well—up until this hiring. And I was so focused on the fact that she walked away from salary negotiations feeling happy that I've missed the mark on how this hiring could be an indication of a toxic work environment; that as this toxicity becomes more apparent with further discussions with management that it's a sign to leave for someplace better. No person should stay at a company where they feel devalued, and I should have recognized that here.

On From Counting Pennies to Letting Things Slide

Update: Hah, okay so I called about it and it took longer than expected (20 minutes), and was just a little painful and the result is that they said, if you don't see a credit next week, call back.
