I think I’m overpayed for my title, but I don’t know. $82K in the Midwest. I’ve asked for a promotion and am taking on a lot more strategic tasks. Would I be out of line to ask for a 20% bump?

A large portion of my pay is in bonus, but I’ve doubled or more than doubled my targets each quarter for 2 years, my base salary is $65k. It feels ungrateful to ask for more

Your boss (or HR) has a range in mind ... and that range has a ceiling. They know that ceiling and you don't. They won't go over it so no harm in asking. If you perform, you've earned it. Don't apologize for making them money or expecting to be rewarded for your achievements.

It sounds high for a “specialist” title. However, clearly you are preforming well, and might just be doing work above your official title. Good luck!

Maybe you can shed some light for me, what does a “specialist” title typically entail where you’re located? I get a lot of confusing information on that and when I’ve been contacted by recruiters they seem surprised that I’m primarily a media buyer and work independently.

Always ask! They can say no, you don’t need to say no to yourself for them before even trying!

Would love anyone’s insight on this. I am an AM and have been working in media for the past 5 years. I’m trying to transition internally from Sales to Marketing. I interviewed but didn’t get the role and the hiring manager suggested I take a course to fill in the gaps in my experience. I looked into the courses and they are about $5k. My question is - is it reasonable for a company to expect me to pay for this development or should the company cover those costs and invest in their employee?
