5-10% probably? Nothing crazy unless they’re really hurting for bodies

20% for me

Year 2 will be significantly lower than expected, there are high-low bands at each level and if you get a raise on transfer they will level you out on year two, to be online with your peers.

20% depending on what you’re currently making. I went from mid to b4 and got a 25% increase and kept the same level

OP is leaving Big4, would you really expect a large increase when going to a smaller size firm that has lower salaries? (I'm not arguing, never really explored it so I dont know)

Many people definitely exaggerate their comp levels......I have seen this first hand (since I know what people make). Many people want to brag and flex.

Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?

I was just offered a promotion to Sr Strategy Analyst and I’d like to negotiate the base comp from $109 to $116 at least. I would love to hear how others have navigated this conversation. My points are: 1. I have both supply- and demand- side experience. 2. I have a proven record of dedication to the company w/ examples. (This is a leadership rotational program so it shows I’m invested in the company.) 3. I didn’t rec a raise in 2020 bc Covid so at a normal rate I would be making ...

They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it.
