Hey Ashley, you found some good ones! I'm not sure how I feel about the tip in the promotion article regarding not talking salary. I agree you don't want to rub it in other people's face but the more information you have about your work environment the better.

What if you were still earning less than people at your same level, even after your promotion? I think keeping salaries quiet helps the employer but not the employees. Sure it might make some people upset if they find out they're earning less, but maybe they should be upset if they're not being fairly compensated.
