Let's talk salary. I'm up for a raise soon and I'm at 43,000 a year. Anyone have any advice on what I should ask for?

In my experience a raise at merit isn't typically negotiable. There are targets and ranges given to you based on your performance and placement in the pay range for your job - lower, middle, upper. You can always question and push I suppose, but you don't go in asking for what you want. At my company at least it's just a numbers game because there is one bucket of money for a department and everyone has to stay within in.


I’m not the only one who thinks this??!?


Honestly I’d find another job. Even a retail firm will pay you twice that.


I think a role change/promotion would be anywhere between 7%-20%. If it's just a performance/ cost of living yearly raise then maybe 2%-5%. I'd honestly wait for other replies though.

Your increase has already probably been pre-determined. During your review ask what you can do to work yourself into a better position. If the money has already been pre-determined is there anything else you can negotiate for? More PTO, a better desk, time to volunteer?

Where do IT leaders hangout on the internet? I’ve been building a SaaS tool the last 6 months focused on making life easy for data analysts and scientist to find and understand data. Basically, an internal google search for data. I was able to raise funds and build a product and received positive initial feedback. I’m curious if anyone knows any spots to find data or analytics directors on forums? I’ve been using LinkedIn and Reddit to promote, but curious if I’m missing any obvious channels.
