Where else but working for the government...
That's industry standard for that role & outside of gov't many HRDs make more, plus stock. You live in Sharon Heights - what's your salary?
To Hmmm, here-here, well said. I would add that at only $135K she probably can/t afford to live in MP.
We got her cheap, considering that the last HR director of 40 years earns more in retirement, and he double dipped, and he's still being paid as a contractor! About time that there is a new, fresh person to make the changes to the 21st century!
It does;t say how long she's been in HR - possibly only 1 year.
I hope it was explained to the new HR director that she will be one of the first employees hired under the 2nd tier imposed by measure L, and that she should not expect anyone will take advantage of the council meeting's public comment to thank her for her sacrifice. Instead, half a dozen anonymous cowards will abuse her on this forum. The publishers of the Almanac should encourage this behavor by picking a city employee of the week to abuse in their effort to drive eyeballs to their display ads. We should all make an effort to personally thank each advertiser for encouraging, supporting and sponsoring this important outlet of hate.
you're obviously a city employee. Tell me, what did you do to earn your exceptional retirement? The retirement that is far and away better than any offered in the private sector? All the while earning a salray on par or better than your counterpart in the private sector. And earning six weeks paid vacation a year. Please enlighten us. Those of us in the private sector don't have anything approaching what you have. When you take a 40% cut in pay as I have you can come cry me a river. Until then SHUT UP!
It has not yet mentioned that the retiring one was the fellow who along with Glen Rojas negotiated the retirement enhancement to take effect in 2009...right about when they would each turn 55 and be ready to double dip. I am not a union supporter but not a management supporter at this stage either. More practical and more of a tax payer supporter than either of those sides. It takes two sides of the table to make a deal....
Don't miss out on the discussion!
