Is 2.25% increase for salary good??? I’m not sure

Considering 7% inflation, a 2% raise is actually a 5% demotion…

This depends on so many factors (performance, current salary) but since it’s less than the inflation, I’d say no.

If it’s not a promotion, new job and it’s above inflation then it’s alright but good? I would say no

Not a promotion just regular yearly increase

I hate to point to inflation as an indicator, but based on that, I would say no. I worked in state government for almost ten years and rarely saw a pay increase…but when I did, 2-3% felt more like slap in the face than appreciation. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2.25% increase spread out over 24 paychecks, even at $100K would be less than $95/pay period.

How do you bring it up to your manager?

I told my director that inflation for the year was 6.2 % however my raise was 3%. I then asked if there would be a salary adjustment for inflation independent of merit… he said he would ask HR and make an adjustment in April

It’s a baseline cost of living increase. Possibly under cost of living depending on where you live. Sorry.

For my city, that would be under a COL increase AND inflation sooo definitely not. Our company gives out that salary raise if you were a poor performer while the average employee got at least 6% (at least last year, I imagine the numbers will change this year). I’m also industry (tech) though and remember 2% being quite common at consulting firms so that may be it too. I’d ask your peers/check your company bowl.

Well I guess it’s 2.5% per salary + commission to its around 4% and I mentioned inflation on my call… hoping to get reviewed at mid year again

Correction: 2.25% per each category - so 4.5%

I just started my job in august so they mentioned a prorated rate too

So basically you got a 5% raise given the initial bump and then the raise at annual, is that accurate? If that’s the case then that SEEMS okay, though still lower than inflation and cost of living so not great. And if that’s commensurate with what your peers are getting, which tbh would be a red flag for me, it probably is the norm unfortunately.

When I applied for this job, I put in a salary expectation of $95k. They warned me that for this level, that was out of their range but I wanted to interview anyway because I was still interested. Interviews went well — they offered my the job AND were able to up it to a senior role so that they could meet my initial expectation. Question is, now that the title changed, do I negotiate for more or is that getting greedy? I’m afraid they would rescind the offer. Please advise!

I work as a clinical care manager (LCSW) with an insurance company. Wondering if there is a better way of finding out salary information for other companies out there that have similar positions? I do feel that I am compensated fairly but lower than what I initially expected based on what I saw on glassdoor. I was told it’s because it’s based on cost of living where I am residing (not sure if that was legit or just an excuse).
