Thanks for a thoroughly depressing topic - nothing like having 9 years experience and being in the bottom quadrant of your alleged salary range:

Interns are the outliers on the low end

Good question for a Friday, Steve. My short answer to your question is, no. I don't really know my market value is in my local area. A large part of that is because I work for a university; have for the last 15 years. Universities always pay less than the private sector. I'm sure that I could probably make more in the private sector.

Kindest Regards,

Rod

Universities are in the private sector. Elementary, Junior High, and High Schools are in the Public sector. My taxes pay for your children to get an education even though I don't have any children of my own. However, my taxes do not pay for your college education. Yes, you can get some government grants but the state still recognizes the institutions as private. They make a profit, right? Do they give all their profits back to our government? Nope!

I'm in Minneapolis MN. My (former) manager gave me the delightful task of naming my raise, as long as I could justify it within market range.
I keep a good ongoing relationship with multiple recruiters, so I simply forwarded them an updated resume and asked them, for the job I'm doing, with the skills I have, for local market, what's my range? Easy and someone else does the work.

3 recruiters agreed that the (typical) Minneapolis range for senior level swings from 90 to 115. (BTW I didn't get the raise anywhere near the top end of the range, but the questions to recruiters did get me a a job offer at that point!)
Definately, know your worth. If you're not there by salary then it's the other intangibles that have to make up the difference. I actually didn't take the highest offer, I took a lower offer where the intangibles are worth the salary difference to me.

I used to work for a university (University of Nebraska-Lincoln) and we were always considered "public" because a fair portion of our funding *did* come from state taxes, etc.

I work for a state university. Our budget is very largely set by the state legislature. Yes, there are funds from other areas, but that is the significant minority of our budget.

That's wonderful. I'll have to move to Nebraska and get a free education without having to pay anything out of pocket.

PayScale.com has many inputs (including experience and employer type for determining salary ranges).
