Fifty-eight percent of HR and compensation professionals say they are underpaid, but many of them say they won't be asking for a raise in the near future, according to a recent poll on HR.BLR.com and Compensation.BLR.com.
When asked how they feel about their pay, 38 percent of respondents said they are underpaid but won't be asking for a raise anytime soon. Another 20 percent said they were underpaid and will ask for a raise soon.
While most respondents said they believed they should be paid more, 38 percent of respondents said they were paid just about the right amount, and another 3 percent even admitted that they are overpaid.
An August 2008 poll on HR.BLR.com and Compensation.BLR.com found that 60 percent of respondents said they are underpaid.
