10 examples of bad career advice
Why it's bad advice: Professionals should make sure they are being paid fairly. Right now, compensation tends to be tied to results; if you're producing good results for your firm and are being paid below the market rate, you should ask for a raise.
Before doing so, you should familiarize yourself with your employer's pay practices, research the market pay rates for your position, and read your employee handbook. If you are given the opportunity to meet with your supervisor to address your concerns, you should go in with a goal in mind and be ready to explain and cite specific examples of why you deserve a raise.
