I've been working for my existing company for 4 years, as a participant in the change process for 4 and as the Sr Change coordinator globally for 2+. I've been semi-satisfied with my salary up until recently when we underwent a major reorg and I was forced to take on more duties and accountabilities. I'm happy to do the work but want to ask for more cash due to the elevated load. I recently found out via an ex-manager that my role was scoped for about 25-30% higher than I agreed to however our HR lowered it (typical HR!).

What I'm looking for is for an average salary comparison for the USA (Western US specifically) for the role of a change management specialist. In ITIL terms I'm a coordinator but my role has me doing partial operational duties and partial everything else.

The only role I could compare against on several sites was for a 'Manager, Change Management' which is about half to 3/4 levels above where I currently work. I need to provide hard data to management to request this so any suggestions on salary ranges or sites I can use to gather valid data would be appreicated.

your worth is as follows

the median of

what your company is willing to pay to
what you want to be paid

That and how easy or expensive it is to find a replacement

Well, I'd say that if your management has a "be glad you even have a job" attitude it's better to simply stay put and not to mention salary at all.

I know HDI had some report published on salaries last year so you want to check with your closest chapter.
