But you can't necessarily do it in working hours, if your employer bans general office chat in those hours.
I have never heard of an employer in financial services banning "general office chat". That would just never fly.

Expanding upon this, you're probably going to get a weird distribution of people willing to answer your question (and to answer it truthfully). Which may impact how you're able to use the response.

Would you mind being fired from an employer that's so uptight?

Pay transparency benefits the rank and file workers. Policies against it are intended to reduce the bargaining power of employees.

Sure, you don't have to answer if you find it uncomfortable. If you ask 10 of your peers what their salaries are, and all 10 of them report a salary 20% higher than yours, there's a good chance you'd be able to increase your own salary by jumping ship or asking for a raise.

This is such a perfect response. It really is.

She doesn't even realise that it's a negative for her and that she has been essentially conditioned by corporate interests to think that way.
