The dot doesn't do COLA. Keep in mind though that since your regional cost center will change when you officially transfer over that you'll have a different set of folks determining your comp

Didn't it depend on the practice?

"Depends on the practice" is legit the answer to 50% of actual firm related questions though...

I'm part of a smaller national practice. And all of our team is spread out across the country.my cost center is also not region specific so sane people will determine my comp no matter where I go. Only concern was getting shafted on my raise for a move to Chicago from NYC

Yup

SFE per chance?

Just heard back from my manager that I was promoted!! And my manager told me the raise would start from Apr so I should expect to see a bit extra on my pay check. The question is last time when I got promoted, I was told the same thing that the salary was increased before I was being told about the good news. However, I didn’t see that pay anywhere. I emailed payroll but didn’t hear anything back. I wonder how this kind of things go with you girls. Any suggestions/thoughts would be appreciated!!

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

I was offered a job in DC that's a pretty steep raise for me, but to be honest, I don't feel comfortable living in the city proper. I don't agree with the mandates, and I've heard crime is super high. Any advice on good areas?

I am currently a biomedical engineer at @U.S. Food and Drug Administration with over two years of experience. I would like to hear everyone's experience navigating the GS increase (salary raise) as a government employee. Here are some questions for discussion. How long did it take you to be promoted to the next pay grade? What do you think contributed the most to that salary increase? If you transitioned into the private sector, what drove you to make this decision? Thanks!

Big Win: a while ago I posted about a man I referred to my company being offered more than my salary. I decided to wait for my annual eval/raise & trust my manager’s assessment of my work instead of bringing it up. Today, so excited to say I actually got a raise that put me way over and above that! 🙏🏽🙏🏽 thankful for supportive leadership esp bc I’m 1 junior eng woman working with 12 senior eng men!

I’m not really good at confrontation or doing anything to rock the boat, but I scheduled a call with a supervisor to go over compensation and I asked for a 20% raise today! They announce raises in March, so I’m not sure whether I’ll get it all, but I feel good for taking initiative and asking for it, rather than waiting to see what they give me. I’ve been at the same salary since I started in Oct ‘20 without even market adjustments and my supervisor said she’ll advocate for a good raise 🙌🏽
