It depends on how much leverage you have. Is it a small company where you are the sole developer? Or a large one with a big team

yeah that's a pretty good way to think about it

Do you feel confident about the impact you’ve made?

I feel a little bit up and down about it. I've made some really important contributions but haven't been as good as I could've been due to my mental health during these covid years

How much did you negotiate for? How much did you ask for? Otherwise, probably not more than 3%.

The conversation hasn't happened yet

5-10% is reasonable

This feels like a dumb question. If an employer asks for your salary requirement and you give them a number…and it’s less than they were planning on paying for the role…does that run the risk that then they’ll hire you for that when you could’ve made more? They’re getting a bargain and you’ll never know you could have made more?! I’m kind of starting at the bottom by making a career change to HR. I have a minimum I have to make-equal to my current pay. But why wouldn’t I want a raise?!

Ladies, I am up for promotion soon and have gotten extremely positive verbal feedback on my last project. However, the formal review that I received from the mgr deviated from the verbal review. Mgr claims that he wrote a glowing promotion review, which principal/partner team pushed back on. I don’t trust the mgr’s words because we’ve had some bad blood before and he is telling me to let him circle back w/leadership and for me to stay out of it. Any advice on next steps? Sad and frustrated.

Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?

I'm speaking to my current firm and other firms on promotion to Partner or direct admission to Partner. I'm struggling to figure out which consistent questions I should be asking either internally or during interviews around partner compensation. Other than asking about what the "buy-in" amount is, what other questions should I ask to figure out expected compensation as a partner? Fyi - this is for advisory/risk assurance practices within public accounting firms.

This might be an unpopular opinion but I am going to say it. Women expecting equal salary, equal opportunities for promotion etc. do not expect men to pay for dates, open the door etc. Women can also do that. Lead by example and drive the change please.
