It doesn’t work like that at most places. They’ll tell you how much they’re raising you, and it’s usually unlikely you have room for negotiation. Just the fact that they told you about this before it actually happened is surprising really

General raise with no promotion is normally max 3%

Go for gold. Ask for a promotion and 72-5k. 58k for a first time agency writer is high. Try to keep riding that gravy train. I did the same and it worked out.

Ask your boss what’s fair and tell them what you heard was market value. 10 grand more where you are at is reasonable. Depends on this city, but ask about where you are at with getting promoted. I know where your at salary wise a raise can be life changing but a higher title gets you more negotiating power during a yearly review.

What’s the typical job scope for a junior and how do you bring up asking for a promotion politely? I feel like I’ve been working above my role for quite awhile now and with little oversight from CDs, sometimes taking over for them when they’re out. I’m the only junior on the team and there are no mids/seniors.

Do I go for the money? Do I tell my boss I have another offer on the table?
