The figures in STC salary surveys always seem low to me, and several others have commented on this in the past.

If your employer thinks $47,730 is too MUCH for a very good technical documentation manager with five years of experience (the last two with this same employer), who's supervising seven people and successfully coordinating production of training materials, procedure manuals,
mainframe system documentation, and PC application-based and Internet-based online help...the only logical explanation is that:
a) you live in a really cheap market;
b) your employer is providing amazing benefits; or
c) they're out of their collective mind (Jungian business phrase of the day).

Where I live (Atlanta), an employer couldn't possibly retain anybody good at that rate for long. Then again, house prices in many of the desirable parts of town here have doubled and even quadrupled in the last three years (thanks a lot, Olympics), so you have to consider all the factors that go into your situation.

But don't sell yourself short. If your present employer won't pay you what you're worth, somebody will.
