I've had five manager positions, and never had any difficulty obtaining the
compensation grade ranges or actual compensations for any of my reports.
In addition, I was the one submitting the recommendations for salary
increases and delivering the final results of each year's compensation
adjustments to my reports. Finding out what other employees at MY level
were making was another matter, but my standards for how I am being
compensated are always based on what I think I might be able to negotiate
elsewhere rather than what others working beside me are getting.

Over the years the difference between my pay and the pay of my reports has
ranged from a couple of thousand a year less than my highest paid report to
nearly $15k above. That last was at a company where I was hired to assume
management of an existing group of long-time and grossly underpaid
employees, and I made it one of my priorities to get all of their pay
updated to current Radford numbers for competitive rates.
