If you think you're valuable you have to make it known. My second year at Booz I let it be known upfront before my review that I expected a $10,000 raise. A lot of it depends on the team too, but yea without a prior discussion, you're gonna get the typical 1-2% bull.

Why not?

You won’t be given anything, you must ask

^sad but true

Wait no raises these days at BAH? Huh? I hated that they didn't offer bonuses for anyone except leadership but they at least gave raises not long ago.

Also, raises were decided before the annual summary period even finished, so asking during your debrief is way too late!

Career advice question. Currently AP / Principal in MBB.

How does everyone feel about "trial runs" instead of being given an actual promotion? Basically, doing the job for 3 months and if it doesn't work out, you go back to your old role. But the role you are doing as a trial has far more pressure and responsibility than your previous role. I'm really trying to gauge how I should feel about this and if this is common.

What are promotional raises looking like for your firm from associate to senior associate? Apparently GT is only doing a 7% raise (per multiple folks in the GT bowl). In the past, most folks have received at least 15% up to 25% if you exceeded expectations, from what I’ve seen. If other firms are higher, I might consider jumping boats because 7%, even mid pandemic is a slap in the face. Especially for someone who exceeded expectations.
