Audit Bowl

Grad auditor only 5 months in. Comp reviews are soon and a part of me feels that if I don’t get an increase I may want a full career change, given that I’d feel like I’m going nowhere. Is this common?

You sound entitled. You have only 5 months of experience and yet feel you deserve a raise, and somehow think you’re worth more than all of your peers. Have you told your peers you’re better than them? Did you go through all of college not knowing what types of jobs your major would lead to?

I get like 10% consistently every year. If you aren't getting that you need to change firms. You can be overworked and underappreciated at any firm you go to but don't settle for being underpaid.

I’m confused as to why you would feel you’re going nowhere after only 5 months. That’s not enough time to gauge it, from either your perspective or the firm’s.

Seriously, you need to figure out how to take the long view on what you are trying to do in your career; think 5 years out...ok ok, shoot for 3 years out and paint a picture. All paths through public or private have one thing in common.. they take time and patience. You have the former and need to develop the latter.

Hahah lol no I think you guys are missing what I’m saying. I never said I’m better than anyone, tbh I don’t think that at all. I’m trying to gain a bit of perspective around what people’s thoughts were when they were starting out. Raise or not, this is my first corporate job and wanted to know if there are times when you should actually consider moving if you aren’t being considered for raises? Did you ever have any self doubt in your profession? Once I have been down a year in my role and I wasn’t given any sort of hope for a bump, would I be stupid to stay or would I be stupid to move and start from a lower level than what I was at?

Yea if you’re getting less than 8% per year then you should change firms...my wife if even in private and she gets 9%.

I feel as though I’m overworked at the moment but not as valuable as what I think I should be, maybe because of how new I am. Should I be expected to receive at least some sort of increase regardless? I’m in fear that if this doesn’t happen, I would lost motivation in the auditing section and then moving would feel like having to start from the bottom again.

Idk how your firm works, but mine, and every firm I’ve ever heard of, you are promoted each year and receive a raise each year. Staff 1 should become staff 2 then senior 1 etc. If this isn’t happening, you’re most likely underperforming or work for a terrible firm

Completely missed the “5 months in” part. Disregard everything I said. I fully agree with Partner 1.
