"For the lack of tools available, and the subsequent work-arounds I have to make, I'd say the pay is below what it should be."
"It is comparable. I was paid at a better rate then they are being paid now."
"Underpaid, but work place benefits were considered to stay in place."
"My last salary is in line with the median salary for this area. I would not mind making more as I have more experience to go along with my education, clearance and certification."
"I think I was getting a little underpaid from the amount of time I worked with the company; however the business climate had a lot to do with that, so I was satisfied to have the level of income I had for the time I had it, through a time when many people were looking for work."
"Underpaid by about $25,000.00 per/year."
"I am being paid below the average annual salary for Senior Electrical Engineer. I am not sure why they are paying me this amount other than the company's way of saving money."

"An advantage of being a consultant is that you are paid for all the hours you work, and employees often work more than 8 hours per day. Also, the assumption that employees are paid less in return for permanence and consultants are paid more for being temporary is something of a fallacy. I've often seen employees cut faster than consultants, and being paid more I am better prepared to be unemployed."
"I felt that I was being paid accurately. I went into my internship with no prior experience and was offered $20.00 an hour, which I believe is reasonable. If I had more experience going into the internship, I would have been offered $25.00 an hour."
"I believe underpaid because I'm not as experienced."
