Sometimes finding out you are the highest paid employee can boost your confidence. Other times everyone finding out what each gets paid might cause discomfort. What side you on?

  • 💖 Transparency is best, if somebody asks I'll tell them
  • 💯 I don't discuss my financial situation with coworkers
  • 👏🏽 I ask what everybody gets paid, as soon as I start

Is there a particular reason why anybody would want to know? Or is this one of those "none of your business" deals? Share your reaction in the comments! #watercooler

Bad idea. Causes jealousy and laziness by other employees if you are paid more in the same position. It's just human nature unfortunately.

I highly recommend that you DON'T. Once you open that door, it can't be shut. Nothing good comes from talking about the pay of you and your coworkers NOTHING

Sharing your pay in an office where you are all doing similar work can be very toxic. It always leads to either you being disappointed or other being very angry with you. If I wanted to advance and make more money, I usually had to search somewhere else for a job.

Rule of Thumb! Don't add in your two cents. I have not been included in a conversation with this topic that doesn't finesse its way to HR. That's how the cookie crumbles.....

I don't mind sharing how much I make it. I don't work in the office, but I'm not sure how the office could be toxic about making different income individuals. If I work in the office, it depends on the environment I am surrounded. I would share or not.
