I need some Ad.Vice. From witchy, businessy ladies such as myself. About WERK stuff.
Back in May I started a new job at a start-up that has led to a lot of work, stress, late nights, traveling and working with sometimes difficult but overall well meaning clients. I’ve learned a completely new data platform, taken over managing our Twitter account, creating a full suite of training documentation, where previously there was none, writing release notes as well as supporting and troubleshooting with clients non-stop.
And a lot of it has been great. I am challenged and learning new stuff. I feel like I’m good at my job and I get to work with one of my best friends in the world.
Now, I recently deduced (I have excellent deductions skills) that one woman I work with (same title, same start date) makes more than me. Like A LOT MORE and she srsly does maybe 1/4 of the work that I do and I am constantly covering shit for her.
I know that money is made up front and everything and if I had had a better sense of the overall workload of this job I would have negotiated harder? But I just don’t know what to do now, next. Can I tell me boss that basically money ain’t a thang, but also it is? Do I just have to deal with it? Drop the mic and walk out?
