I currently make $65K as a Marketing Science Analyst. Started in July 2021 and have excelled beyond my and my superior’s expectations.
I love my job! However… I’m very underpaid when compared against local and national avgs for my role and responsibilities.

I live paycheck to paycheck (follow a budget/no wild spending.).. living wage in Nashville is 85K. I *need* a raise otherwise I will have to work a second job. Is it too soon to bring this up after working less than a year at the company?

If you've performed as well as you say you have, then ask to be compensated for it. Worst thing they can say is no. (And if that happens, I'd start looking elsewhere. You shouldn't have to work two jobs just to live comfortably.)

I recently got awarded a quarterly bonus that is given to a handful of employees who have exceeded expectations in performance. Would they use that as a reason to decline my request, you think?

like

No, bring it up. If you’re performing, there’s nothing that’s off the table.

like

Exactly, and I'm sure they don't want to let you go this early if you're already performing. Just document those comments and evidence for why you are exceeding expectations

I would meet with your manager and ask. Give them all the info you have given us as to why you deserve it. It never hurts to ask.

If you're in office with clients in Nashville, replacing you will be expensive. If you're worth it, and a flight risk, they'll be foolish not to up your pay.

A competing offer for more is your best option however

I am on a team that manages relationships with the banks that hold brokerage accounts for a large Asset Management firm. I have gained an enormous amount of experience (relationship mgmt, project mgmt, analysis), and compensation is decent - $85k base with $25k bonus - but I have no idea what my top earning potential would be if I switched companies or pursued another role. What is the best way to find out?

So I have a side client that I handle 7 companies for. I basically do the bookkeeping for all companies and sales tax for just two companies. I get to work whenever I want. So if I just touch it only once a month or every day of the month,whatever. I get paid 50k a year for it. I feel I am being underpaid for it but then again it’s just a side thing, so is it justified? In my head tho, it’s like man it’s a lot of work. I want 70k. Is this ok?
