If there's a chapter of the STC in your area, get the salary survey. (If
you're not a member, join.) The STC in my area (Austin) is very useful
because it gives salary stats broken down per various factors: years of
experience, variety of responsibilities, size of writing group, and so on.
I always circle my subgroup in each chart & give copies to my boss & to HR,
thus providing them with a good idea of where my skills/pay fall in the
local market. Of course, if the statistics indicate that your pay is way
above average for your skills/responsibility, you may not want to give
copies of the salary survey to your boss & HR....
