I am an entry level design engineer in Bozeman MT. I have a BS in Mech E. I was signed on at $55k annually, curious if anyone has any insight as to similar jobs salaries? I am almost at the 1 year mark and going to ask for a raise, curious what seems fair

Check glassdoor. I use 5% over the median in my own area as a starting point for talking about it. My path went
1) ET ->42.5k
2) EE ->57.5k
3) EE->85k
4-5) EE->93k

Seems fair. Bozeman is expensive but Montana is still pretty cheap. People are getting similar comps in California in retrospect.

Isen here, but work with multiple mech. Engineer grads. Our starting salary for first years is 65k 5k post tax relocation and 10% of salary bonus. MCOL. I hope this helps!

I just received an offer for a job I am very excited about. Base is within reasonable range and I will likely go back and ask for a bit more there. The company also offers a yearly cash bonus based on the performance of the company as well as a stock grant. Those are determined based on percentages of base salary. My question is: are those percentages typically negotiated or set based on position?

I am currently doing my full-time internship at a startup where I am getting paid 17$/hr. I will most probably be continuing with them in Fall as a part-time and asked for an upgrade to 25$/hr. I asked for that upgrade because I already have around two years of experience outside of Canada as a social media executive in a multinational company. I am currently doing a masters degree at Concordia so I believe 25$/hr would be more appropriate. Am I aiming too high?

I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA
