"Boss" - C level or project manager "boss"? The first one probably has personal risks (money, legal) involved in a small company like your, and a good project manager has a good part of sales (maybe bot >20%...).
Another reason: He has an old contract and the company does not want to / can change it, besides terminating the contract.
What worries me a bit: Is there no "fixed" pay for a time span, besides percentages of customer's pay? An unsuccessful project can have many reasons, and developers may not be at fault - so they should be paid anyway, as they did their job.
irene170855d@sbiewald Executive level boss. Project manager makes about triple a developer. BA makes double.
Billing to the client is hourly. I get paid salary so I took my billable hours weekly and estimated billable hours per year. I matched that to the billable hours in the contract and extrapolated for my other contracts. Contract developers on the project make a bit more than double a regular full time employee.
I don’t know how many other contracts she has exactly, but for the contracts that I’m listed on the SoW for, i know that the executive is making at least several million dollars a year.
@irene I have doubts about your calculations, but I'll look at it later.
Anyway: Having an executive boss "only" getting paid ca. 10 times better is not unusual - and, this might surprise you, not a very high factor. Look at bigger companies, how much better the executives are paid in contrast to normal jobs there.
Wack683055dLet the other devs know. And then collectively demand a raise. If they don't give you one Look for a new job.
Hell in general talk about your salary with your coworkers. There are 3 opions:
A) you all make about the same, the best case
B) you make less than them, in this case you have a good stand in salary negotiations
C) you make more than them, in this case they have a good stand in their Next salary negotiations.
Either way the devs win!
