It’ll be my one year in January. I’m entry level but curious if it’s appropriate to ask my manager about a promotion or raise?

I think as long as you have solid reasonings for why you deserve it, I don't see why not

It's appropriate, sure. I'm assuming you'll have a perf review in Jan for your 1 year--do you know if your company typically does raises during annual per reviews or at a different time?

I wouldn't. You may seem over-eager. Unless you've made some outstanding contributions in your first year that you can use to justify starting the conversation around a raise, I would give it time still.

Anyone hear if their firm is going to adjust for inflation? 5% is real, so anything less than a 5 % raise will be less pay.

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?

After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?

Ever since I started working in tax, it's just not been possible to rest. I've taken time off, but my mind has constantly been worried about work and been feeling anxious.

What's the point of resting, if you're gonna be immediately tired after coming back. I feel this damages morale so much in the long run.
