On the one hand, congrats on sticking with it and proving that guy wrong. On the other hand, agree with @CS1 that only people still in banking after six years are people that weren't good enough or smart enough to get out... The pay isn't what it used to be when that guy was in your shoes and the best use of being in banking today is the resume stamp on your way out.

Sadly there's a lot of that kind in banking. For all you analysts, don't ever feel intimidated by someone because more likely than not, they're trying to make up for their insecurities.

approaching my 1 year! Should I ask for a raise? If so, what is a reasonable increase?

I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating than the fact I was just told my performance does not warrant the 15% raise I asked for. Just be honest and say the company can’t afford it because I know for a fact this isn’t on me.

Hi UK Fish, going into a promotion (from C to SC) and raise discussion tomorrow at a boutique consulting firm. Currently at 62.5k. Bonus was up to 10% but all I got was a measly 2%, slow pipeline maybe but I wasn't told why (will raise tomorrow). A recent acquisition has resulted in losing our annual xmas week off and a learning budget of 1k. I know for a fact that last year they were looking to hire SCs at 70k. Is a base raise to 75k a fair ask?

I’m a very experienced veterinary assistant who has been doing this job for about 4 years in total however because of my skill level I would say I am more of an unlicensed technician. I’m looking for input on what I should ask for a raise. Given the minimum wage, I make about $5 over but that hasn’t really changed to match inflation of living, etc and truly feel like I should be making a decent amount more given my skills. Any helpful advice?

Have an offer from Deloitte doing the exact same thing I do at KPMG for 45% more. Partners at KPMG have basically told me they can get close to matching but not until raises happen in October. Should I trust them or jump? Worried about having to build an internal network from scratch at Deloitte but also worried about getting screwed in October and getting like a 10% raise only. M2 if it matters. Thoughts?

Is there a way for me to negotiate a higher base raise come year end?
