How do you know if you’re asking for “too much” of a raise when there’s little salary transparency at your agency? Coming up on my one year and have gotten nothing but positive feedback from my manager (and also mentions of “when you negotiate for a raise at your one year…”). I know I’m underpaid industry-wise and for the work I’m doing, but am worried about asking for what could equate to a 20-30% raise if that’s beyond what even my manager makes. How do you know how much to ask for?

How much of a faux pas is it to raise my rate after only a month? I have a FT job that pays my bills, so I feel that should allow me to be way more picky with my freelance gigs, I just don't know how to navigate this without seeming like an asshole.
