If you get a raise, is there a minimum % increase that makes you feel appreciated vs. a slightly meaningless bump / slap in the face? Genuinely curious.

This year, they should be doing 15% at least to keep the ones they don’t want to lose to the Great Resignation. And to make up for lack of raises in prior years.

Anything less than 5% feels like it’s not impactful. Don’t think I’d be excited about less than 10%

I know if I go somewhere else, I could easily make 20-30% more, so an internal promotion with anything less than 15-20% bump definitely won’t keep me from looking around. I’d be really happy with 20% though.

It should be less about “what’s the lowest percentage we can get away with giving this person when we promote them” and more about “what would we pay an external candidate for this job title”

I’m a manager/technical architect making 155. I had a boutique reach out and ask for comp range. I said 180 flexible and they immediately ended the convo. Is 180 really that crazy for boutiques? Im in the low code space at the moment w/8 years of experience and a pretty solid pedigree? Low-med COL if it matters.
