Sadly the only way an agency will give you a legitimate raise is if you have an offer elsewhere. If you have one though, be prepared to walk if your agency doesn’t match it.

They'd rather bleed talent than risk more people asking for raises. It's a stupid system.

Yes.

Take the salary and the promotion. Then start looking elsewhere. Your baseline as been elevated. So now your prospects will be, too. You could easily make a $15K-$20K jump on top of your new salary.

I just got a 5% increase for a promotion. 2.5% was the merit increase across the whole org, so really I got a 2.5% increase for the promo. Yes, I am looking for a new role.

It’s not un-heard of, but yeah typically going from one level to another is 10 - 20%

Yes.

Yes. Skipping companies would earn you a 20-50% bump.

Say you're looking for just one more measly bitcoin a year.

5-9% is normal. Jumping can help you get 15-20%

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
