    Default Salary average

    Ok, I make $40,000 per year. From the salary sites I&#039;ve went to and the jobs I see on the web, am I grossly underpaid? I have 1 1/2 years ASP experience, and according to some sites, I should be making $60,000 a year? Are these sites just exaggerating or am I being taken advantage of by my employer? I know ASP and SQL, which is what these jobs require.<BR><BR>I understand you shouldn&#039;t post your name, but can you just leave me a figure and experience some of you are getting? I&#039;m thinking seriously of quitting my job, but I want to make sure these figures are accurate.<BR><BR>Thank you.<BR>underpaid and underappreciated

    Is this in US$? I make just short of 6-figures Australian - whatever the exchange rate currently is - I have made more, but at the end of the day I went for the job I liked best - It sounded like a paycut, but in fact it turned out to be a lot better stress-wise, with a fair bit of prestige attached. I say go with what&#039;s most comfortable for you. <BR><BR>I could be making 20-30% more in a different job, but I&#039;m happy where I am. I&#039;m not constantly pressured to sacrifice quality for speed of delivery, my colleagues are all great (it&#039;s more of an extended group of friends than an office atmosphere) and we produce high quality work for good clients. it&#039;s what I want....<BR><BR>j<BR>
