Abstract : Managers from four different cultures, two highly industrialized and two less industrialized were compared in their attitudes toward salary recommendations. Decisions were made by each manager regarding the recommended salary increase (in % of present wage) offered to each of ten hypothetical engineers. Three of the engineers differed in merit (high, average, low) while the remaining seven were average performers each of whom had some extenuating job condition. Managers from developing countries gave higher overall mean increases in both absolute percents and relative to the average engineer as well. In addition, managers from the developed countries seemed to be more sensitive to differences in merit while managers from the developing countries seemed to be more sensitive to job conditions in making salary recommendations.
