Hello, I am a retail senior banker in WI, I love banking and finance but really struggling with my pay. Merits came out today and received less than a $1 raise putting me just under $50k. I have been there for 4 1/2 years and I am doing well. Do I need to switch institutions or lines of business to make real money? I need advice!

Move to wealth management. Good people that treat customers right and work hard will always rise.


Time to change institutions


Try to move into commercial role.


Need to move to commercial or private banking 100k+


In some places that is the highest they Pay for that position and I some places they can go upto $60K. I would try to move to wealth or business. They make good money.


Thank you everyone, this has been helpful.

You can't pay people with a title, time to research other gigs, IMO.

Though many have tried

Hi TCSers,

I got 3.71 overall IPF for my Final Aniversary Scheduled for 1st March. I got DCA cleared and my DOJ is 18th March 2021.

Since DCA incentives will discontinue with less than B band.

I'm not even sure that I'm getting band this year or not as I didn't initiated Project End Anniversary. Tried to check with Lead/Manager/HR/TD. Everyone has different views.

I’ve been on the bench with J1 for about 3 months. I was worried that because I couldn’t find another project, I would get laid off so I found J2, which pays more, is very meeting heavy, but I really like. I’ve kept J1 because I’m still on the bench doing absolutely nothing and getting paid. Thinking about looking for a role on a project with J1 that’s not along my career path but will allow for me to do work with no calls so that I can manage both jobs. Does anyone have experience or advice?


Which strategy is better?

#1 - The first tactic I learned for salary negotiation is to give them a # and act like you will walk away if it's not met. I forget the details, but something like even if they give you a lower #, you still stick to your #.

#2 - You can also give them a # and they may come back with a lower # and you can take it or leave it.

#3 - A new coach told me about giving a range. He said if you give them a #, they may flat out say no.

Can't they say no to any of these?

Today I found the wedding website of a cute guy (early 30s) I met two weeks ago, who’s been texting me every day since we met. I sent the screenshot to him and asked him about it, but he hasn’t responded. We haven’t done anything(thank god) but I already feel like a home wrecker. She still has his name too. 💔


What do you guys think about this? Cringe or not?

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA? Was just told that there is likely not going to be a chance for a raise during my upcoming performance review due to my salary already being “above average for the industry” based on my employer’s questionable research. I’ve been with the company 8.5 years & am the only one in my role, which they can’t operate without. I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.


Anyone here a Client Onboarding Associate for an RIA? We have YE reviews coming up soon.
