How does it work in your company/teams?
Everybody knows everybody's salaries and grades?
I never felt this to be so cool, as it always landed in employees revolts.
An employee should look at his own work, contribution towards the project/team/company ,assess the situation himself & find out if the salary being paid to him is reasonable or not, than comparing the salaries with peers and take calls based on psychological triggers (That happens if things don't tally). Many times they choose to leave and land themselves in a poor work place. Like from the frying pan to the fire.
It'd be better if management issues a subtle direction to the young folks to keep these things confidential. (Until they grow older & learn the cunning tricks themselves)
These freshers in team just sit together and compare the compensation letter field by field and feel relaxed, only if all them match dot by dot. lol
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
Here it's the law that works as a subtle direction to keep things confidential. Salaries, in the sense of this law, are confidential information between you and your employer. Disclosing them can get you fired.

"You mean like from space?"
