I don't have a degree in CS so I consider myself lucky to have the job I have. Even so, I was discussing salaries with some of my coworkers recently and I realized I was being paid the least. Is it right to ask my boss for a raise if I've been working effectively so far?

A degree in CS is meaningless. I have been working in my field for 27 years with no degree. Ethics and work experience are most important. Ask for what you are worth - and that's what your work product is. The practice of excluding people or paying less based on degree ( which is largely an administrative and financial achievement) is for dinosaurs.

When did you start working there?

Well, how long have you been in your current role with your current company?

YES

Anyone who has/ heard of fbookers who successfully switched roles and gotten a promotion (L3 to L4)? Context I am planning a switch from analyst to data scientist from a non US location to US. However, L4 is needed for this jump (prob due to visa issues). With the current revamp in PSC cycle, I am not sure if I can successfully get promoted by next year and make the jump. To do so, I heard there needs to be 2 EE (for this half and next half). YOE 5, BASE 100K
