After 2 years at my company (Multi national company with >1k employees) I was promoted to Senior SWE with a 10% salary bump from 85k to 93.5 I live/work in the Baltimore area which I consider Medium COL. Is this a reasonable adjustment for a senior promotion in this area?

I don’t believe the salary bump is acceptable. That is not a competitive salary bump. As a senior SWE with a decent amount of experience over 5 years you definitely should be making over six figures

I’d say so, but interested to hear what others think based on their experience.

Well here's the thing, business owners don't pay you on what they think you deserve they pay you on what YOU think you deserve. So in other words, if the offer presented seemed questionable that's your time to negotiate and explain to them why they need you. .

It should probably be a little higher. Maybe 20%.

Hello all, I'm currently in final rounds with Google and TikTok, plus potentially Meta and Blackstone for similar Analyst positions in different business functions. I have 1YOE experience as an L4 BA in Amazon with incoming promotion to L5 at Q2, and was given the top performance rating (TT). There will probably be a pay bump from all offers but not sure if it will beat promo. If I am trying to optimize for the most successful life outcome - assume I get all of them - what should I do? *o*

Hi fishes, I just browsed through this bowl and it seems I've replied to the HR's mail with an expected CTC way lower than the market trend. YOE - 9.1 Stack - IT/Network Current - 7.5LPA Expected - 18LPA (mentioned this in my reply to their mail along with all the docs). Should I've asked for more? Or will my current CTC hold me back? Should I drop another mail? Which designation should I go for? I can see guys getting AVP at this xp but I'm looking for B3 for ease of getting the next promotion.

I’m not sure if my feelings are rational or not and I need some help.

Now that I’ve been getting more clients, she’s saying she wants to go into interior decorating. Another example in replies.
