RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I work in technology and have several colleagues with similar tenures in that field currently working in the private sector. If you want to do a dollar for dollar compensation comparison--I made more in 2006 than I do in 2010 and I've added a Masters degree in that period and my total compensation lags behind my former coworkers. In my time with the state I've found it disheartening to read so many comments about the over compensation of public employees. There's no question public employment for Oregon a great deal at the bottom of payscale, but the attorneys, technologists, engineers, and psychairitrists (to name a few) leave a lot on the table and in return get to endure comments about how lazy and overpaid we are.
