Boss makes a case to bring my salary package up to market, HR says no. Is it smart to meet directly with HR and make an argument myself? Are there any success stories out there of this? Don’t want to muddy the water.

As a rule of thumb, I would never go around your boss for anything. Did your boss proactively bring up that you weren't market, or did you?

Yes. I’m somewhere between Corp dev and PE so HR and salaries I imagine can be tough for them to determine “market.” But I would of course go to my boss first and get his opinion on if it’s a good idea or not.

I know of a directly comparable story. HR was not helpful at all but the employee’s manager back-channeled to the CFO who overrode HR.

Thanks for the input. Want to make sure I express my interest in staying with the group but current structure makes it hard to keep turning down HH calls

I’ve surpassed my billable target by 200 hours already and I am one of the highest billers (firm is transparent with associate hours). Ive been saying no to all new work—currently staffed on 5 active deals. Two of my deals just went pencils down and the other 3 just signed/filed so I’ll have several quiet weeks before mid December. Am I justified in continuing to say no despite likely billing less than 10 hrs a week or should I take on more work to fill my next several weeks?
