Anyone? Just curious if merit raises in pharma are more (or less) consistent than at consumer agencies during performance reviews. Covid aside

At FCB health I got raises 2 years in a row In November. Like 3ish percent. Was promoted once as well and also got a decent raise. From what I gathered everyone got something every year. I think that’s unusual in our biz though. In previous jobs I got more sporadic, larger raises. Not sure what’s better.

Thanks so much, this was really helpful. I’m also in the IPG health network and only started at the beginning of the year so I’m just looking for insight to see what i can expect

Anyone had luck ovulating and conceiving with an increased dosage of clomid? Looking for encouragement and success stories to lift my spirits
