I am grateful for what I make. I made $5K/year pre-tax in my first job and currently make >30x. That doesn't mean I shouldn't be disappointed by my raise that doesn't even beat inflation.

What hurts most is that I put my sweat and tears this year and sacrificed personal time and my health for this job. The raise honestly feels like a slap across my face

OP.. Not every increase will beat inflation, but you will beat inflation handily over the course of your career. I find my comp increases are relatively streaky in the way it jumps.

D1... I understand. Been there. Usually when I find that happening it is because I worked harder not smarter. I worked 2x harder for 1.5x the output. This can degrade your value. Just food for thought from my experience.

Honestly I would probably quit if I got less than a 7-8% raise. The reason we work so hard is to have a fast career progression.

OP... What level, what rating, and what is your new comp /bonus? I find it is good to benchmark instead of toil.

SC to M, promotion in CBO. I was promoted to SC in Aug 2020, and milestone year shows 2024 (4 years). Is this normal I thought SC-M was 3 years and 2 for an early promo. Can anyone suggest if it's even possible to try to get promoted in 2 years? Just don't want to put in extra effort and getting disappointed later.

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?
