Started a new job, then I found out that the salary of the person in charge of me has lower/same as I have.

How did I know? I looked at the API without authentication of all the list of employees.

Luckily, I didn't sign the contract yet

    I don't necessarily see this as a problem. Where I work we have a software resource manager model who earns the same as our lead developers and covers a geographic region. The fact we're paid the same even though they are responsible for "managing" me isn't an issue. As long as there is clear definition of roles.

    We also have contractor developers who fill short term gaps who are paid significantly more than the resource manager but he is still responsible for them.

    Role is more important than salary in a heirarchy.

    @OneOfSimpleMind Haha wouldn't say that. But just because someone has a people management role, doesn't mean you should pay them more than your top level developers.

    @LMagnus Lol I was joking.
    Still I think it's reasonable to earn more if it's your head the one which will roll when your team fails.
