Just save everyone time and energy and leave your firm. In my experience when companies have matched to save someone, they become entitled AF. No more 🙅🏻‍♂️

They should be entitled AF because they got the counter. Dont show that attitude to the team you work with.

Most of the time when you throw money at someone with an offer you’re just buying some time. I think every case when we gave a raise or promotion in response to an offer the person left anyway within a few months.

Approached firm leadership regarding an offer and was able to get a match. Not a promotion. Was honest with my intents and came off a good year where I had a partner very aware of my contributions. If you’re leaving anyway And think you’ll have someone in your corner backing you it’s at least worth asking if it would be considerable

Just curious, how much was the raise in %?

Best way to ask for raise without making it seem like an ultimatum, don't have any offers lined up / haven't put in any substantial effort to get offers.

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?

Possibly stupid question: does a promotion to ACD help your overall job prospects? I see a fair amount of SrCW job listings and freelance opportunities but seldom ACD/writer.

I have a union position as a therapist. My management kept telling me "we're working on it" when I asked about a raise since getting my LPC. Our union contract does not renew until 7/1 of next year. I brought this to my supervisors attention and now the director emails me to say basically "yes, we are working on a raise but nothing can happen until 7/1/2022". Has anyone else had this experience? Of management being vague and just stringing people along?
