I've been with my current agency for 4 years and seen two promotions, the promotions have been 4% of base salary. Current promotion is from strategy manager to associate director of strategy. Looking for feedback on the percentage increase

That's a cost of living raise, not promo raise. They're taking advantage of you. I've been there. Time to jump ship.

That was my overall feeling as well, knowing the additional complexity of what I'll be taking on, it gave me a very sour feeling. The other oddity about this agency is that manager have no idea what employees make, they only know ranges. Salary's are solely managed by HR and the CEO

I leave or threaten to leave every couple years. It's basically the easiest way.

That’s an extremely low percent increase. My agency gives ~7% as a merit based increased not even promo based. Typically internal promos will always be less than what another agency will pay if you were to jump ship but this is even lower than that. You should definitely look elsewhere and try to make up the salary gap.

My agency does 3% annual cost of living and 10% promotion raises (have seen people swing 20% by arguing for double promotion, which manager to associate director would be since we have senior manager)

Check out realagencysalaries.com. Looking at it % based is to the company’s benefit, not yours. Just focus on the actual salary. 25% of a crappy starting base still likely leaves you at the low end of the payband for the next level, which may not be comparable to your contributions.

Has an offer to join a smaller but growing firm. Will get a decent raise, but I'm concerned about the lack of delivery capability.

Anyone has similar experience can share their experience?
