Pay is such a touchy subject. It’s not like you can go to your co-worker and be like “Hey, how much do you make?” So how can you find out if your company is low-balling you?
Naturally, the Internet is here to rescue you. Websites such as glass door will compare your salary across its data and determine if you are being underpaid. While the site is quite U.S.-centric at the moment, you can still use it as a rough benchmark, and also use recruiter sites in Singapore that put out their own salary guides.
If all else fails, some good old fashioned people skills are the way to go. Knowing people in a similar position or industry as you (colleagues as opposed to BFFs) can help with sharing the information. Networking can also get you an idea of what to expect salary-wise, and finally, having one foot in the job market at all times can also help you improve your negotiation skills.
Use these tools to figure out if you’re being underpaid. Test them out before taking the argument to your boss. Hopefully you’ll get a raise out of it!
