I have been employed by at my company years . SVP level
I have been employed by at my company for 10 years . SVP level i recently found out that my male counterpart is paid significantly, ($35,000) more than me. Our daily responsibilities are the same, however the portfolio that i manage is 3x his, as well as the number of direct reports is double. Our corporate structure is an all male executive team.Recently they decided to add another level and chose my counterpart. I was never interviewed or knew this new position was being created. when i questioned my boss he said what tipped the scales was this gentlemen lending experience , the new position will have a very small credit component. Of course i received the rhetoric regarding my value , etc. I am done with women at the company being traated as second class and receiving less tax equal pay. I have proven track record and excellent evaluations .Do I have a case to pursue? and could i win?
