10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About at Work
At some point in your career, the chances are good that you’ll feel unsatisfied with your salary. While moaning about your salary is common, it isn’t very helpful. The reality is that salaries differ across jobs, across regions, and even within companies. While it is true that the average sales or accounting professional gets paid more in San Francisco than in Fargo, it doesn’t mean that the work of either employee is more or less valuable than the other. The cost of living varies greatly across the country and salaries everywhere reflect these regional differences.
The bottom line is that companies want to make money. Companies know which team members can make that goal a reality. Employees that generate revenue are almost always compensated accordingly, so instead of complaining, try to deliver consistently excellent work. Ideally, your salary should reflect your contribution to the company and leave both you and your company satisfied.
