    I haven't been in a partnership for some time, but I remember being in meetings discussing applicants where their personality came into play. If we thought the applicant had the sort of personality to attract and keep patients he/she might get a better offer, so there was some subjectivity to it. I'm not sure how that translates to anesthesia though, unless maybe they would be doing a lot of face-to-face work like pain management.
    Did your predictions pan out?

      from the original post:
      Some of my concerns:
      1. I already signed my offer. Is there any point in bringing it up now?
      2. In our contract, there is a clause that states we are not supposed to discuss physician contracts. Would I be violating this clause? She discussed these details prior to her signing the contract though.
      3. I think I will enjoy working in this practice from what I know so far and would not want to sour any relationships prior to starting.


      lots of bad advice in this thread. Salary is but one factor to happiness in a job.

      I say he should immediately schedule a meeting with his boss. Tell the boss that it has come to his attention that they hired his buddy at a higher salary, and ask them why. Then his boss will say oh I am so sorry you are right we meant to pay you the same all along. If he doesn't get that response, then start looking for a new job right away, then leave the otherwise perfectly acceptable job where they enjoy working, for a job where they don't enjoy working, but everyone is getting paid the same.

        As I recall yes but I'm not necessarily recommending it one way or the other, just saying it happens. You're competing with other groups and markets. The starting salary was a range, not a fixed number and by the time they're a partner it's a moot point since it's all on productivity. Of course we were never in the position of hiring two candidates from the same program in the same year.

          I'm not sure what thread you're reading, but no one is suggesting this.

            that was an amalgamation of the responses.

              Well if I picked one word out of every post, I could make it say anything that I wanted.

              No one posting in this thread would suggest that, so I'm not sure what your point is other than "Here's some advice that literally no one suggested".

                A poor representation and insight of the suggestions.

                vs mirror of the opposite sage advice: tough noogies. take it like it is.

                  some feedback and follow up from OP would be nice

                  would be even more interesting to hear from the friend. And the employer.

                    Last post. Life isn’t fair, we will all be treated differently and maybe unfairly at one time or another. To me (fatlittlepig) personally in this situation, it would weird me out a bit, but it wouldn’t cause me to be bitter, resentful and start another job search (that’s ridiculous). The original poster thought he was the one guiding his colleague whereas in reality his colleague showed him up in the end, good for her. If I were in his shoes, i would be chagrined and happy for her, and move on with life.
