Mid level Electrical Engineer in the greater Baltimore, MD area making $115k base w/ $20k sign on bonus. No yearly bonus. I started this job in April of this year. 2-3 years experience. When I onboarded they told me to expect promotion to EE III in about a year. Performance reviews coming at the end of the this year and I’m wondering 1) if my salary is on par with what I should expect 2) how to approach conversations about raises and promotion with my supervisor. Thanks for any insights.

Wow. That is a good comp for E2 but not sure what the adjustment for MD locations would be. Here in Orlando E2 pay band is 80-110K so you are towards the upper end of the band. Ask your leader for your comp ratio

I would not recommend asking for a promotion just for higher pay or look for an internal jump to an E3 with a role you would want. You could try asking for a letter grade promotion if you just want higher pay (for example E2G to E2F or E2B) you will probably earn more or as much as E3 G base pay as E2 if you can pull that off.

If there is an open requisition for the position, md law requires employers to provide a pay range for the position when requested.

I’m an electrical engineer in San Francisco, with 5.5 YOE and a PE. I only make $108K, plus a bonus for getting my PE this year. I would say your salary is good, but my company also isn’t known for offering the best pay.
