Any agencies giving raises right now? We keep hearing the same pandemic-related excuse every week for the raise freeze. I was due for a raise when everything shut down last year, took a pay cut for half the year, and don’t know how much longer I can hold out.

No, but agencies are hiring. Secure the bag.

They will probably give you the old “you are lucky to have a job”

Yes, we have given raises where they are due. Have you grown in your role? Out performed your position? If your agency is giving you a hard “no” on the financial front, you should feel free to shop for a different role. Maybe you can get a better offer, maybe not. Gotta test the waters!

I have a union position as a therapist. My management kept telling me "we're working on it" when I asked about a raise since getting my LPC. Our union contract does not renew until 7/1 of next year. I brought this to my supervisors attention and now the director emails me to say basically "yes, we are working on a raise but nothing can happen until 7/1/2022". Has anyone else had this experience? Of management being vague and just stringing people along?

I just had my first annual performance review meeting with my manager this past Friday. She had nothing but good things to say about my work, effort etc. thus far. After that she indicated a raise of a little less than 3%. Is this something I can counter? Should companies be giving raises that are at least at the percentage of the inflation rate (Being ~ 6% this year)? I appreciate any feedback!

I'm currently working as a Data Scientist, at a 1T$+ M. Cap company, and transitioning to a Manager position. This would be my first management role. How do you navigate this change in terms of compensation, without having strong leverage? (eg other offers) The market average, in my area, for the two roles have quite a significant gap, how would you isolate this conversation about this raise, other than that I would be on a substantially different role? Anyone with exp with a similar transition?

Need advice: I did something impressive at work, especially for my level. I don’t want to give too many details. The firm benefited from my accomplishment.

Ever since the accomplishment, he’s made comments that he got me promoted, is the reason I am excelling, etc. I have worked with several at the firm, have glowing reviews, and many pushed for my promotion. Recently, he said “I made your year.” How do I nip this in the bud?

Hi Fishes, How long it takes to get promoted to 7B from 7A. It can depend upon the performance, but usually what's the average time? And how much hike can you expect at promotion?

Hi there. Earlier this year I laid out a business case for why I should get a raise & I asked for a $20-25k annual raise. I got $15k. I found out another person also asked for a raise around the same time. He didn’t give a business case, he just asked;he got the full amount he asked for ($70k). He is more senior than me, has been there longer, & we are not in the same function. However, something is just not sitting right with me about this situation. Any thoughts? Am I just over-analyzing?
