Seriously, how to ask for a raise? I have 1YOE and and seeing a lot of people jumping ship for huge raises. I would rather stay at my firm for various reasons, so how do I bring this up? And to who? Thanks

You’re jumping the gun by thinking you deserve a raise at 1 YOE. If you only care about money and want to give up the network, company brand, learning opportunities, then jump. If you value these things and understand that your career should be framed as long term and that you should strategically time your jumps, stay patient

Why do you deserve a raise? Serious question, define why you deserve a raise in business value terms as a starting point to make your case. What have you done to go above and beyond the role you were hired for, and what has the impact of that been to the company? A hot job market doesn’t mean they’ll pay you more, it just means you have more options. And you may have to leave for a big raise.

Didn’t realize you were at a small boutique. In that case, I echo what M1 said. And I would time it around a successful deliverable or great feedbaxk .

Don’t listen to these folks. Ppl advise what suits their interest and ideology. Always jump and get good comp. Don’t get caught in the ideological debate

A few thoughts: - unfortunately, switching companies every handful of years does prove out for higher comp at a macro level. Plenty of non comp reasons to stay, but know big (30%+) jumps often require you to leave - after 1 YOE you likely do not warrant a large raise regardless of performance

Alright squirt… 1. You probably don’t deserve a raise. Look in the mirror and be honest with what you see. 2. You can get one now anyway by jumping. This is always the case but you’ll find this method is sometimes taken too far and could bite back later. 3. Something something comparison is the thief of joy etc.

Get an offer from another company and show it to your current company’s HR and say you will bounce if they don’t match

Deloitte won’t match tho. I would stay for two years at least then jump ship

M7 infrastructure in Texas. I'm currently paid near bottom of scale in my group. I'm not upset and love my job and my peers. I have an offer for 40% raise to industry job. I prefer my current work though, both from daily work and career path. But 40% raise is a big deal. At what point is the pay raise more important than daily work joy. I'm stressing over this decision. I don't really want to leave.

We currently don’t see this being a huge conflict of interest but perhaps this is naive thinking. We only recently began dating so that’s why we’re are unsure how to best approach.
