You should never compare your salary after getting a hike, You'll always get few folks getting more than you which might not let you enjoy your progress, Rule of thumb is do as much research as possible, before your hike discussion, fight as much as possible during discussion, but once don't either accept it or if not satisfied try to look for a place that can satisfy you. In any case I repeat, Never compare you salary with anybody else. BTW, congratulations🎉 for 44% hike.

YoE*3 is very much justified. Plus stable job and wlb of IBM. Very nice I would say.

@IBM It's a great package i think considering this is your first company. Can you please give some info regarding how much hike do generally people get after getting promoted from 6B to 7A except your case. Do they generally get this much hike like yours?

I'm not aware about others, you can ask a question in one of the IBM bowls.

This is standard per the current market floaters. Good job!

Those who say YoE*3 rule justifies it have no idea what the market offers when you have skillset, experience and a decent educational background.

Plus the OP hasn't switched yet. So staying in a firm from the start and keeping up with market standard is commendable.
