I’m at a nonprofit right now and I guess I had it in my head that I was leaving money on the table. But I guess my manager compensation where I am now is comparable or sometimes even higher than what low- to mid-level directors at a university might make. Both universities that I spoke to this past spring are private and I’m told by someone I know who used to work in higher ed that she thinks they pay a little less than public universities. I know the exact career move I could make to get my pay up pretty significantly and have considered it, but it’d be going back into the private sector and I don’t know if I care to do that. What I don’t make in salary, I make up for in benefits and excellent work/life balance.
