Salary ranges for each job grade are published and available at my company, so I already have a decent idea of how much my colleagues make. And I know where I fall in the range for my grade, and my relative experience at that grade. If I want to make more money, I know how much ceiling I have to work with for my position vs. moving to a higher level. I don't think knowing a specific colleague-or-three's salary is going to add much information.

DWS Survey exists. Compare where you are relative to that. If you feel it's unfair, move or say something.

I guess you mean number of years as an actuary but most people have different experience which is generally what drives the salary difference in the first place. But if you are saying I can take a lower level role and make the same money because of x years of 'experience', i'll take it.

In my first job and the job after that, I've always had a close coworker or two that asked about how much I make. It was mostly casual tho. Really depends on how close you are. But, mostly it really wasn't too much of a big deal. Just go ahead and ask if you feel comfortable. But, you should disclose yours too.
