Performance review - am I being paid less?
July 3, 2014 9:27 PM Subscribe
My performance review is coming up, and after three years at the company, I'm doing the same job as a co-worker, which wasn't the job I was hired to do. I believe I am fairly compensated, and generally like my job. However as a female person twenty years younger than the male person I am sharing job duties with, I wonder if I should take the opportunity to address salary equity in a performance review or not.

I have no idea what my salary is compared to my co-worker. I'm just considering making the point that, adjusted for the experience with the company years which he does have and should be compensated for, that I'm not loosing out or selling myself short on income.
This is not an asking for a raise situation, more of a planting the seed for a raise, or another opportunity within the company. This meeting just addresses what our goals and accomplishments are, and where in the annual raise structure of like 1 - 3% our raises fall.
I've never had any training or mentorship in negotiation, and usually err on the being passive and not making a mistake side. I am replaceable, but like everyone, I like to think it would be a PITA to do so.
