All about being in demand- firms pay for external talent. If you want substantially more, you have to jump. If you want to be a partner, it doesn’t matter where you’re at now..just get promoted as soon as possible and you’ll catch up eventually.

It’s kind of sucks but to be honest, outside of your immediate teams, all of the firms are pretty close to the same....and they don’t give a shit about you. Jumping ship for 20%+ is worth it earlier in your career. Maybe even be able to come back later. But also if your team is the shit leaving has an extra cost you have to consider.

You switch firms if it really bothers you that much.

There will always be a dimly lit bulb making more money than you needing your help

I started a new job in January and have performed well. The person who is a step above me in organizational hierarchy is leaving and my director has recommended me to take the vacant position. This of course comes with more administrative responsibilities along with the work I am currently doing. Director says he will suggest a 10k pay raise, but I believe the added responsibilities should be worth more. Am I wrong asking for 5k more?

(We all do user research and journey mapping, no UX person on the team so that responsibility falls on me, etc).
