Thread regarding Cengage layoffs

"At Cengage, we believe in transparency at all levels and creating a workplace where all employees can be their authentic selves."

Except when it comes to sharing salary bands because it's SOOOOOOOOOOO complicated.

Had a boss in a Zoom team meeting who complained his boss said he was at the top of his salary range at review time and couldn’t get a larger salary increase. This frustrated my boss, but when it came to my review, he used the same top of salary range line with me. The place is such a sad joke.

Let's be honest...aside from coders and a few other business functions, 80% of this company is clinging to their job. What exactly is a 45 year old digital publishing manager with no transferrable skills going to do when he finds out he's underpaid compared to his colleague? Threaten to quit and become an Uber driver?

@2avj+1bwej2SN Fortune 50 company that had to compete for talent. I was shown my salary band and where I was in it at every yearly review. It’s not at all uncommon.

I've never worked for a company that shows this information. Are you coming from the public sector?

Most companies have defined salary ranges for positions with a minimum, median and maximum salary and share these numbers with employees during their performance reviews — most companies that aren’t two-but clown shows, anyway. Cengage - a two bit clown show - refuses to share salary bands because many, many longtime employees are near the very bottom of their salary band and kept their on purpose to control costs. Especially compared to colleagues who were hired in more recently.
