Thread regarding Occidental Petroleum Corp. layoffs

Pay Grade Range

How wide is the pay discrepancy within each pay grade. Do all 22s (senior level) make close to the same, or is there a wide range?

@3aik+1g1Tbrjb admits that you can be fired for no reason, but says you can’t be fired for sharing salary info. That nonsensical statement speaks for itself. If the company wants you gone for sharing salary info, do you think they will tell you that’s the reason, or just say that your position is simply being discontinued. Get real m0r0n. If you feel confident in the law, give us your name and salary and see how long before you are drawing unemployment. Maybe you can find a new job in the dream world you live in. The rest of us will continue to draw a paycheck in the real world.

Under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA or the Act), employees have the right to communicate with other employees at their workplace about their wages. Wages are a vital term and condition of employment, and discussions of wages are often preliminary to organizing or other actions for mutual aid or protection.

You cannot be fired specifically for sharing salary information with coworkers. Of course they can fire you without giving a reason you d-mb a-s.

“By the way you can legally share your salary, bonus, LTI, and promotion information with your coworkers without repercussions from your employer.” Not so. In Texas you can be fired or disciplined for almost anything with certain exceptions. Discussing salary is not an exception. Don’t believe me, state your name and salary here.

Several grades. Starts at 18-19 and go to 29. Significant overlap in pay between grades. Probably same for other business units. Different grade numbers for salary non-exempt.

For IT
Analyst 19
Senior Analyst 20
Expert 21-22
Advisor 23-24
Principal Advisor Grade 25
Manager / Project Manager 24-26
VPs may be 27 and up but no idea

I don’t think 40 grades in realistic. There are probably between 6-10 grades depending on which job type you are in. I assume we have to spend sometime in each grade, so there is a salary range that let’s us get increases without needing to be promoted.

All sort of great things can come from sharing your salary with other. You could find out how much over paid you are, and your colleagues will be upset or you could have out how much underpaid you are and you will be upset. All good outcomes. LOL

By the way you can legally share your salary, bonus, LTI, and promotion information with your coworkers without repercussions from your employer. Any supervisor or executive who threatens you for doing the above things is breaking the law. Many times they don’t want you to share compensation information with your peers because they have to answer to their employees. Don’t be intimidated.

It allows them to pay you without promoting you. Works for a couple of years till management eventually has to explain why you have not progressed.... Was a large salary range between my peers. Don't talk money at the coffee station!

There is wide range to recognize differences in performance amongst the people in the grade.

There is a wide range to allow for giving raises without promotion to the next grade.
