In my experience observing what others have done to gain this, you have to build a business case for yourself and what you’ve earned the company in the 8 months as CD. Why do you deserve more money? Pull in market standards for CD pay in your area in addition to anything else that supports a salary bump. It’s based on facts and supporting those facts. Did you retain or save a client? Where’s the proof, how much did that bring into the company, etc...

Good advice. And ask for a timeframe where you can achieve the desired salary and what milestones you will hit to get there

realizing when a place doesn’t value you is one of the main indicators for when its time to move on. I don’t mean to be flippant in my advice but if you want more money and the company isn’t giving it, it’s been my experience that leaving is the best option.

Honestly a lot of times their hands are just as tied as yours. But speaking now gets you to the front of the line in 90 days or whatever. No one tells you no twice, usually, unless they’re prepared to let you walk. Downside: they may let you walk.
