I’m about to have my 1 year review as an AE (i’ve only been with the company 1 year). I am going to push for a raise. What is a reasonable expectation for a salary increase by raise?

Bring talking points as to why you deserve a raise. What have you achieved/contributed? What results have your clients seen that you helped them achieve? Have you taken on new responsibilities? Have a range in mind of what you want, ask for the high end, but have a lower amount you’re willing to accept. A 10% merit increase isn’t unheard of, if you prove you deserve it

3% annual for inflation. 8% for merit. 15% if you did something promotion worthy

Also if you’re going to push for a raise, don’t name your $ first. Ask what a typical range is. They’ll lowball you but it’ll give you a sense of whether you’d be way out of line to ask for 15-18%. Good luck.

12-15% annually has been my experience. But as others have said before, be prepared to list why you deserve it. Even if they agree, they’ll probably make you argue for it just to prove you can.
