Was promoted in under a year at an agency 6 months ago, too soon to ask for a raise?

If it was really a promotion, they would’ve raised your salary then. What you got, my friend, was a title change: an easy way to placate without paying. So don’t ask, ask why it’s taken six months for your raise to come through. Especially if it has increased your work load.

I got a raise from 60-65, but it was less of a boost than I was expecting

Most companies’ policy is that when you get promoted, you can’t get a raise in a year. Regardless of that, it does feel too soon. Curious to why you would like to?

There is probably only a handful (or just one) time you’ll be able to successfully get a real raise outside of merit. $5k is not a lot in the grand scheme of things. Think about after taxes and the net amount that is actually hitting your paycheck. Then decide if this is when you want to play that card.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
