Did you ask for the promotion or the raise? If not, take what was given and include your goals/request in the next review. Don’t be that guy who’s getting nice things and finds a way to complain about it.

Yes you can always negotiate. The worst they can say is no. Google how to ask, seriously it’s helpful. Write it down if you need to. Ask around the office what other people at your level are making(that’s OK too). Look online at salaries and be prepared to state your case. You deserve it.

I don’t find it fair that the other person is making more then you are if your both at the same skill level. Are you getting paid a fair salary within the market? If you are not. You can start with that opener

It's probably a long shot, usually when you get promoted they say this is a "good thing, be happy." Just remind them that you are happy with the recognition of your hard work, but want to make sure you're not starting in this new position at a salary level that's not competitive with the industry and sets you back too far when the next promotion comes.

You could already be at the top of the range for the level.

Like we say in my country, you’re going to heaven and you’re still whining.

Yes. Always ask for more!

How do you know what someone else is getting? You shouldn’t. You can’t negotiate with this low of a title when you’re getting a promotion. Ask if you can set goals for your next raise.

It’s up to each person to start a job as a good negotiator. If someone else is getting paid more and you happen to find out about it chances are they know how to negotiate. Salaries are private info. Companies would list them on your nameplate if it was an appropriate thing to do but it’s not. Know your worth and know how to ask to be compensated accordingly. This isn’t kindergarten where we get to complain because someone has a red crayon and we don’t.

Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors? I feel like the women supervisors that I’ve asked get really uncomfortable and look at me like I’m asking for a lot, whereas the men at least are a bit more composed in their reaction and almost expect it. I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year.

Any insight appreciated!

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
