|A couple coworkers have mentioned recently that they found out they weren't making as much as equally or less qualified men at our start-up (to the tune of 15-25k differences), and someone in HR just tipped me off that this has been happening across the board (and includes my own salary).
It's a mid-size YC company that I won't name here of course....obviously I'm planning on leaving, but what's the correct course of action here? Is this something that's wise to report?|
addendum: in one of the cases, the man's initial offer was 15k more (even though he didn't do as well in interviews) and we wouldn't respond to the woman's attempts to negotiate (and apparently started asking about her personal finances). I don't think negotiation is a huge factor here, though I know that's a common cause.
Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
