Hi, I’m in need of some salary negotiation advice (continued)

I Work for a boutique firm and up for promotion early next year. Fairly new firm so no idea in what to expect for salary bands. Last time I got a merit increase, it was more than I was expecting. I know I’m doing well and leadership has noticed that I can deliver. I recently moved from the Midwest to east coast so unsure how to proceed with a potential negotiation if 1) I don’t know what to expect and 2) my move was self-initiated. Reality is, my COL is much higher now than when I was living in the Midwest and I’d my them to take that into consideration (even a little bit), but I know that they don’t *have* to. When I moved, there was no salary adjustment since it was self-Initiated. But, if they were to recruit someone externally based out of my area - they’d have to take into account the external hire’s COL into an offer a little bit, right? Even if the answer is no, I’m wondering how I can frame this conversation with my director - whole realistically need to escalate to the partner I roll up into. Any advice is appreciated, TIA!

Simply explain the facts As the move was your choice, expect nothing, the firm didn’t ask you to move, why would they pay you more for something they didn’t want? Worth a shot, just explain the situation, don’t use emotion, and don’t be unrealistic

Right, that is what I would like to do but I guess what I’m getting tripped up on is that I don’t have any data points to compare myself against (idk if I’m in line with other top performers so maybe I cannot ask for more or am I in the middle and can ask for more). So yes I have contributed to internal initiatives that is not billable work and I don’t expect them to reward me for a move I made for myself, but I also do feel I always go above what is expected of me and I know that they see that - but not sure how to go about asking for more $ if I don’t know target bands of my peers

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive

How do you break up with someone when there’s no real issue? They’re great and all, you just know they aren’t the one for you?
