I have 4.5 yrs in Marketing Project Management - the last two have been working on a website that has earned over $20M in GP each year. I’m Scrum certified and have my CAPM. I’m on the fence about staying at my current company because of leadership changes. I’m considering asking for a title change to Senior Project Manager and a raise to $100k (currently making $85k mid level) and letting their response be the guiding decision if I stay or go. Does this seem unreasonable?

$100k is not unreasonable! I just started a PM position at $85k and have never been a PM. Only a Coordinator and junior according to my resume.

Hi Candice - absolutely! You’ve paid your dues and gotten results so they should want to see you grow in your career - if not then use it as a stepping stone to something new.

Does $100k seem crazy? I’m in SLC

Scrum and capm certs don't really drive compensation. It's all how well you interview and negotiation skill.
