Usually before is better. Since you don’t know your raise, I would go to leadership with your business case for what your market rate should be which is x% above your current salary. Say you hope they consider that when determining your compensation for the next fiscal year

Received a job offer at a consulting firm as a data analytics consultant for $20k more than I am making now. I am torn on taking the job offer because my manager told me I was getting promoted at the end of the year to a data analyst. I am not sure what the salary range for a data analyst is at my current job. Should I take the job or wait it out to see what my end of year raise would look like? I really like my job and team so leaving would be tough, but this raise is something to consider.

Do I go for the money? Do I tell my boss I have another offer on the table?

With the job search severely tougher than expected and repeated, explicit offers from my former partners to rejoin, I start to feel tempted. => See below...
