Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)

Started a new role within my org <1 year ago (been with the co several years) and have received incredibly positive feedback from many people about my performance so far, including my manager. I expressed my desire to revisit my compensation (off-cycle) because I am by all accounts exceeding expectations for my role and my manager was very supportive and encouraged me to provide them with a write up of what I want and why. Any advice? I’ve researched salary comps already
