    I was recently approach by upper management and wanted to promote me to a higher level position…..i will have unlimited power in the position but the only problem is the salary is not much of a different of what my current position. The responsibility is a great headach and more works.

    so my question is : is the balance of power justify the pay rate?
    would you take more headache in the position even the pay not that much of a different of y current salary??

    i have a couple of days to make my decision.

    Definitely take it. It’ll open more doors for you either with that company or elsewhere.

    This is the only thing that takes me along time to make up my mind. ..im not too worry about other opportunity in other place ..i like what im currently doing and looking to surpass the management level…with more challenge and upgrade my skill….take this position is just like sitting on the same desk but with more headach and power within the cultural of the company…and yes this is something people should take advantage of when looking into a long term in the future elsewhere.

    In the jump to entry level management, you can’t just look at base pay, you have to look at the total compensation. Your boss likely only make about 10 to 15 % more than you in base pay. This is hardly worth the much greater responsibility and the pain. But management generally gets much more other perks that you’re not. Their bonus is vastly higher than yours. If yours is 5%, then theirs is at least double or triple that. And if they’re a public company, you’ll likely get rewarded with stock options or discount employee stock purchase plan.

    I used to work for a public company called Fairmarket where the CEO make the same amount of money as me in base pay. It was a public company so all executive compensation was published and made public. Her total compensation however was over $500,000 per year when you add up bonus and other financial incentives.

    Weird that they wouldn’t offer you a higher salary for a more demanding position. Maybe you should try negotiating with them. Tell them that more power and responsibilities demand more money, if your a good employee than i think they will agree. Don’t expect a massive increase but also don’t just dismiss the opportunity.
