Well done! Good to see a varying range of moves.

Everyone is so fixated on getting that 60-80% increase, and people don't realise that 25-30% is still amazing and probably the norm.

My company had been holding back title change and just gave me one with a raise. I had already planned to talk to them about salary before I knew this was happening. It was also two weeks before performance reviews where they do a merit based raise.

Is it wrong to fight for a raise on top of what they gave me? I had found out the salary of what they are hiring for my role and I am on the lower end even though I’m covering that market currently. Should I ask for what they are offering new hires?
