I was onboarded in a different role. Ended up being pushed as PM (because my business experience). Now I’m thriving on the role and few months now in the role I’m going to ask for a raise, since I got a crazy responsibility bump but 0 pay bump. Do you guys think asking 30% is too much ?

May seem crazy at first, but if you are truly performing at a level way higher than they hired you on for, give it a shot. Companies are desperate to keep people right now, so you never know until you ask! Also, go in with salary research for job title/years of experience/location/etc to back up your points. And lay out how you’ve exceeded expectations

As long as you say the final number and NOT mention the percentage, can't hurt. If the words "30%" comes out of someone's mouth, the negotiations likely over. Hard numbers are more palatable because that's what finance is judged on, they don't care about % unless it's to cap you.

Any advice on negotiating for things other than salary with current employer? Most interested in a <40 hr work week (while still considered FTE), but also good to hear perspectives on negotiating for more PTO, benefits, 401k match, bonus, etc. How do I turn the conversation to this from annual raise discussion? Should I address with my line manager or HR? What are fair trade-offs for salary $s?
For context, annual reviews are coming up, but company has been clear budget for salary raises is low.

I was listening to a podcast for one of the courses I’m taking and thought I’d share some cool stuff about building habits:

- Willpower is not as effective in making a long term change compared to building habits

- Reduce friction (eg much more likely to go to gym if it’s 5 mins away vs 10)

- Take an existing habit and add your new habit onto it

- Use chaos and stressful times to rethink practical decisions

- To break bad habits, add friction (eg phone & charger away at night)
