I have got an offer from a company named "A". My friend working in company "B", also got an offer from the same company, "A". We both have the same years of experience and similar background.
However, during the salary discussion, my friend was offered USD $700 more than me per annum. But when the HR discussed with me, he said, that was the best salary he could offer me.
How could this disparity be? Is the HR cheating me? Is there any way to go about this?
Myself and my colleague both that the same years of experience, same relevant work experience. But we both studied at different universities. Will this bring about a difference in salary?
Years of experience is 3+ years.
