Almost impossible for new hires unless you're on the _extreme_ low end of the salary bracket due to a very low previous salary

@OP you should try and just go for early promo at YE. Mid-year promotions are crazy rare

OP what level are you at? Also if you haven't proven yourself (which you haven't, you're a new hire) there's no way to negotiate a comp adjustment. Get used to it-pay bands are wide. (It feels so presumptuous that people think they deserve more money because someone makes more than them...how about get great ratings at year end and get a raise).

10K gap at what % difference? Unlikely you're going to see any action on that while you're still unproven in your first year. Same goes for promo, you would need fairly senior partners advocating on your behalf, which I can't see them doing unless you somehow sold them a whole new account

That's exactly my problem 😭

Thanks. I'm making 10k less than others at my level and I need a raise or something asap

Same. What are you making compared to peers?

Same here.

I’ve been recently promoted to a people manager. One of my direct reports has only been with the company for less than 3 months and during our recent 1:1 has asked for a raise. I am certain they will not get the raise that they want but will do my best to help them. How can I improve as a new people manager to deliver this (assuming you bad) news? Or how to handle financial discussions when I do not have control of my reports’ salaries or bonuses?
