Is a 20% raise insane to ask for? (If you also get a title change - jr to mid level / mid level to senior)

No

no, every tome i’ve jumped ship, i’ve asked for at least 20%. internal raise, 20% isn’t uncalled for, but it’s a good sized one. much easier when you’re going between those levels. 20% is a smaller $$$ amount.

If you're jumping ship, no not crazy. If you're jumping up internally, kinda crazy if you get one but not crazy enough that you shouldn't ask. I wouldn't expect to get it but good luck!

Arrow Icon

Crazy internally but doesn’t hurt to push for that. Not crazy if going on the market. It’s pretty standard

Arrow Icon

It’s less crazy internally the less you make. Going from 60k to 72k for a valued mid level who started out with the agency as a junior and who they don’t want to lose isn’t unheard of, but if you’re already in 6 figures hard to go from 120 to 144k, for example, in one go.

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

When it comes to minorities getting paid less than their white counterparts (esp. men), do you think it’s more about minorities having difficulties standing up for themselves to make a case for getting a raise/promotion, the bias of their managers/leadership, or both?
