"I was paid in accordance to my lack of experience working for a company of such magnitude. Freelancing had paid much better in comparison, but did not provide as much experience as Premier Computer Solutions had. What the company provides in terms of a solid foundation in SQL, .NET and Microsoft technology makes up greatly regarding any concerns of underpayment. Provided I were to choose a first company to work for again, I would select based on experience over salary."

I also can do the math to figure out how much I'm valued at. As an engineer I feel I am an important asset to any project. And to potential projects. I find it important for my employer to reward me for my hard work. I too understand the company needs to make a profit."
