Only 44.7 percent of people who changed employers in the first half of this year saw their salaries rise, a straw poll suggests. Some 36.9 percent saw no change at all and the salaries of 18.4 percent dropped.
At least those are the findings of a survey of 593 office workers who changed jobs in the first half of the year published Thursday by a job portal.
The average increase of salaries for job changers who did get more money was about 19.3 percent.
Some 35.8 percent of respondents saw their salaries rise about 10 percent, followed by 21.9 percent with a 20 percent increase, 11.3 percent with a 30 percent increase, 9.4 percent with a 15 percent increase, and 5.7 percent with a whopping 50 percent increase.
Asked why they decided to change jobs, 43.7 percent of respondents cited low salaries and unsatisfactory treatment, followed by 15.5 percent for poor working conditions, including inadequate benefits, and 12.5 percent for low recognition or lack of corporate vision.
