I've talked to people about it but at the end of day it's all about leverage. The partner will keep going back to the performance metric, "I understand that you've been a 4 in the past but relative to the firm and your peers this year, you are a three. Due to high volume of resources and to make sure cost metrics fit into senior leadership's predictions, we give blanket raises to all resources based on their performance." You're welcome to try and get them to be nice and give you something but I've never heard of it working. Think about it, If they tell you no what leverage do you have? "Pretty please?" You have to be willing to walk. At the same time it doesn't hurt to try. Silver lining, when you get promoted to senior you get a new base salary and your raise goes on top of that. It will be a good bump

FYI - I'm stuff 2, got promoted to senior. Received a 3 this year but barely missed getting a 4 and think this may affect my comp for next year

Ask to have a meeting with my regional leader, my partner will not have the pull to affect change but regional lead can. I have very little faith in the roundtable process

4 & 5's for 4 years

Then you're probably in a better negotiating position vs someone who recently got a 3. The offer in hand helps too. Thanks for the info

Don't expect to make any headway on negotiations unless you have an offer in hand you're willing to walk away for. 90% of the time it's salary directives, not negotiations. And OP it sucks but it doesn't matter if you were the highest or lowest 3, same raise percentage

Ey2 why do you say that? Have you tried yourself?

Did it once at Deloitte. Have not tried at EY.

Ey4 and how did that work out for you? Successful attempt?
