How do you advocate for yourself and ask for a raise?

Keep a list of all the cool shit you did and complimentary emails. Have salary info from others. I find it really helps to take an interview or two, even if you’re not looking. It’s great for the ego. Once you’re armed with all that, you’ll be in the right frame of mind to know you deserve it. And who knows- you might decide to take that other gig after all

Yes! And speak with your manager before you go for that raise, make your intentions known, and have him or her tell you the exact steps you’ll need to take to get that raise. (These steps shouldn’t be far off, btw, you’re probably already working on them). This way your boss already has your intentions in their brain to advocate for you if it comes up

Also if they try feeding you the whole “We don’t have the budget right now” bullshit, hold them accountable to a timeline. “When will you have the budget. Ok let’s pick up this conversation at X date,” for example. Our patron saint Cindy Gallop has awesome tips for this and even a Facebook chat bot to arm you with the right approach. Good luck! Get that lettuce, lady! 💰💰💰

Thank you both!

There’s a chatbot that Cindy Gallop did via Facebook that genuinely helped me gather the info and courage I needed...and then to give me the confidence to leave when they didn’t give it to me. No regrets. New agency, better work, better boss, huge raise.

Ahhhh just saw @BS1 comment. Consider mine another endorsement of the bot

14 months into my first agency job and I’ve been told from my CDs that I’ve been recommended for a raise. What should I ask for? I’m making 58k now and have had a bunch of work produced.

Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
