I want to ask my managing attorney for a raise at the 6 month mark of working at this firm.

I have 3 yoe/live in New York/PI lit./Masters Degree in BA/ make 61,500 annually. Suggestions?

Hi all!!! Looking for advice here. I was promoted 5 months ago to a Jr. Recruiter. I currently make $75kCAD. Recently my company has been impacted by a layoff, and my workload almost doubled. P.S.

So I’m very conflicted right now. I’ve been working for a small business for over a year and a half now with only me and the owner running the shop, but it’s mostly been me working until 7 most nights. The couple has been super nice, but with life events happening, I needed to pick up a second and third job. I eventually asked for a raise but was told no and that I would need to teach classes to do so. I have some job interviews lined up but I feel guilty doing it. Should I feel as bad as I do?

I’ve been practicing for 6 years in-house at a media company (was a startup when I joined and is now more established), straight out of law school. Due to the small nature of our team (3 legal members), I have been involved in all areas of our business and even advise c-suite frequently about legal risks. I received a promotion, with another title bump on the horizon this year. I have an opportunity to go to a start-up media company as the sole attorney. Anyone else have experience doing this?

What exactly am I supposed to do with that? Suggestions?
