I’m not sure there is a way to ask without coming off as entitled

Leaving and coming back works if you leave on good terms, yes, but also if the market and business timing support it. Do not leave assuming you will be able to come back when and where you want.

Given that we are already behind plan, I would save this ask for next year (IMO you don’t get to make this ask very often). You’ll have more ammo as a manager give that you will likely be back at the bottom of the band. When the firm is doing well is the best time to ask, and when you are Coming off a great year, so save for next year right after promo I think.

Oh and I’m GPS too. And was nowhere near the top of the payband as an SC either. I just decided to time things in a way that I figured was optimal. And yes I realize I was underpaid and that I still am so let’s not let this convo go that way. (SM2 now).

IMO our if cycle raise can happen when you have an external offer to show. This worked for few with the support of leadership. Without external offer your supporting partner should have a strong reason for talent partner as they are everyone one as a resource.

I’ve been promised a promotion. The discussion started many months ago before Covid. When the pandemic hit, I stepped up & worked insanely hard, above my level—it’s been praised and recognized, but not rewarded. I was told the promotion will be delayed for reasons not to do with me. Am I going to get strung along? Should I start looking? Can I ask for more money when it does come? I believe I deserve a lot more money, but I’m afraid of sounding greedy or entitled, especially during a pandemic.
