If you bring it up outside of an annual compensation call, be ready to walk

Can go both ways

Sounds like an old wives tale

It's part of that annual discussion.

The other problem is your fixed up comp will just reset to "suck" when you move bands. You can go from a high percentile SC to a low percentile M.

If they say no, it’s not a good long term sign. But yes, always negotiate as hard as you can - HR is used to it, and soft negotiation tactics just get laughed off

“Be ready to walk” how? Like be prepared to be fired?

Yes, be ready to be let go if off-cycle you bring up compensation by saying you’ve been applying other places and have an offer in hand

Feeling torn. I enjoy the team that I work with and have a relatively good work-life balance. However, my compensation is below industry standard, and I don’t want to be with a technology implementation-focused firm in the long term (strategy projects are few and far between). Is there any good method to parting ways with people who have invested so much into my development without disappointing them or potentially burning bridges?
