I think it also matters what level you are and how long you have been at the firm. The longer you are at a firm, unfortunately the more out of market alignment you could be. If you are only a senior, I can’t imagine you are that far out of market range. I would also make sure you are strategically in the right place. You don’t want to come off as whiney. If you are negotiating you better come to the table with a clear set of performance examples. You can’t just say “I am a hard worker and think I should make more.”

Can't help you if you don't provide numbers. Our seniors are now getting paid between 95k and 110k (tax, HCOL) base. If you're expecting 120k+ as a senior, there is no advice anyone on this thread can give you other than go industry and hope you get lucky.

Negotiating salary is only possible for the most part if you're negotiating for something within the set pay band.

Do your research (payscales, glassdoor, robert half, etc) and come ready to show the manager/partner/hr how you get the number and why you deserve it. I ask for a raise (i call it market adjustment) every other year or so. They won't always give you what you ask for but they will NEVER give you a raise if you don't ask.

I’m interviewing for a remote role in which the salary range is listed. It’s a 50k spread. I’m 90% sure part of the spread is due to cost of living adjustments for where you live (I’m in a mid-sized city). Even the low end would be a decent raise for me; however, the average salary based on a 20-25 person sample size on Glassdoor is about 8k above the midpoint of the range listed. What would you ask for if you were applying for the role? Shoot the middle? Shoot the average from Glassdoor? Other?

I just found out that my male coworker makes $15k more. Backstory, new department, my manager hired me a year ago, and after 5 months, a newperson joins the team.

A week ago, my manager congratulates me on my first year performance and tells me he is giving me a promotion and a raise.

I’m a strategist making 100k at a brand consultancy. I started a little over a year ago at 75k and they gave me a raise a few months ago to better reflect my responsibilities/contribution. Now I’m expecting a promotion to senior strategist next month and am wondering if I should ask for a raise alongside the title change? I know my last one was generous, but shouldn’t a title bump come with a little more as well? I’m trying to figure out how to navigate this, don’t want to seem greedy.

Our CSM department is going through a major restructure right now. There has been a huge amount of turn over since the beginning of the year. Our managers have not given us any insight to what the new restructure will look like, they have also pushed out our annual raise conversations until the end of April. A lot of CSMs are leaving the company and it has me thinking maybe I should entertain other opportunities elsewhere as well.
