The next time I apply for a new job, I may ask for the 90th percentile of people in a similar role in the company instead of a range of numbers for my salary expectations.

Yeah, that doesn't do you a lot of good when you want to evaluate if you are being paid properly. We publish ours annually and the matrices vary by office location, job family, and job banding. As you push to the top of your band, your available merit increase declines.

It is nice, but at the same time, the rest of the company gets to see the actuarial scales and develop pure hatred for us.

Tell them to pass a couple exams and get back to you.
