Retention and Promotion of Staff

Stop With These "Lateral" Moves

I was "promoted" to a different department. When I was first approached about the position and an interview was schedule, I was told the position was a higher pay than what I made previously. But when I was hired I was told because I worked within the university the position would be considered a lateral move and I would not qualify for more money.
