Any tips for asking for a mid year riase when a raise was already given in December/January? (7% for hitting above quota numbers) I started to realize the new external hires on my team make 10-15k higher than me for the same role. I am a top 3 performer but promotions and raises are usally only given based on hitting a certain number and at the EOY and often times that number is very hard to hit given the out of my control situations like acquisitions.

It's a gamble, but I would just respectfully let then know that you are aware the new hires are higher in salary, and you want to ensure you are getting appropriate compensation. As a top performer, the new hire base rate plus 10% should be appropriate. If they decline, find another job, since they don't value you.

It is cheaper to give you a raise than to hire an external and train them.

I agree, it comes off petty/rude to use the others excuse. Focus on yourself and the value you bring

Best of luck I was 10k from WC last year at midway point an didn’t get promoted

I was in the same boat last year. I met with my VP and respectfully shared my feelings about being right sized and fairly compensated for my experience and contribution. They said they understood and would "try to figure something out". Nothing happened until Jan. They are so focused on you hitting winners to get a raise.

Regardless of your outcome, I think it's appropriate to discuss with leadership.

Go get an offer letter from elsewhere and tell them to match it

Only issue is this indicates you want to leave. If I have an offer, I am walking. staying for a match, showing you may leave hinders future progress.

Ask for the raise, based on reality and merits, if they don't accept, look for work. They won't fire you for asking.

There’s something called “pay equity”. You should have similar pay for similar work.

Well damn. I really felt that part. Oof. Representation rises and yet both gender equity and pay equity lag. Particularly for Black professionals.

Travelling to India in December and hopefully return to US by December end, H1b Visa expiring in April 2021(have a valid stamp till 2021 April) and have renewed visa approved till 2023 with approved i797 original doc. I will try to get a dropbox appointment in Dec but so far don’t see any dates for Mumbai location but if I show this document to the US immigration officer on my return will the date on i94 (admit until date) get updated to 2023 instead of April 2021?!

Starting a new job during a pandemic: I accepted a job offer at a midsize firm (300 attorneys) and resigned from my old firm (12 attorneys) right before covid shut everything down in early March. 3rd year attorney; civil litigation.

If I had known at that time how covid would disrupt everything, I would have turned down the four job offers I had and stuck it out at my old firm.

I started at the new firm completely remote two months ago. Unfortunately... (cnt’d in cmts)
