@d2, instructions were included in the email that announced new comp is available, essentially an online form. @d1, next steps involve the service line partners discussion/approval. @d4, is this how it went for you too?

like

@D1, fixed typo and spelled out acronyms

When did you have your discussion and how did it end ....

About a week ago. They asked and listened to my reasons (prior experience/current performance) and agreed that it made sense. It was with an initial contact, don’t think that’s the person making the decisions though.

How did you initiate this?

So what are the next steps

🍿

Forget the raise OP. Expect a difference only if you have a 1 next year and meet the util. Same situation here.

Can any at will employer adjust your salary unilaterally like we’ve seen done at several firms this year?

Would you suggest paying down student loans (approx $29k) while 0% interest or put that money into savings. I’ve been on a 10% salary reduction since April and bought a house last fall.

I’m trying to decide whether to take advantage of 0% interest and get my loans as low as I can or put that money into savings.
