What is a normal salary percentage bump when getting promoted, and are these bumps negotiable??

Assume they’ll come in with a 10% bump. But it also depends on the company. Everywhere is different. Yes they’re negotiable. Get a number in your head that you’re comfortable accepting a promotion at. If you don’t get that number, make your case. If they say it stands at what it is, find a different job that’ll pay you what you’re asking for.

I'm hearing about a lot of 3-5% bumps, but that's in tech. Everything will depend on your company and your role and your value, don't be afraid to push for more!

Definitely varies by industry and company. You can ask around your company (if there's anyone you're comfortable asking) about their past bumps to get an idea. If it's a big company you may be able to ask here in your industry bowl for people's experiences there.

10% is standard according to the HR experts, however I’ve heard of people getting 20%.

It really depends. I think the average is about 10%. I have never negotiated one but it never hurts to ask.

Hello, I just received an offer with Chase for the Relationship Banker position with the pay rate of 50k yr + commission. Do you think it is a fair pay rate or I can negotiate for more?

Client recently offered me a job for an open req (industry eq SM). The work is flexible, the req is just to get me in the door but I decide what I want to work on (which I trust to be true). Much better culture, wlb, etc., but I’d be taking a 100k pay cut and be an IC with no team. Is it worth taking a step back in pay and responsibilities, or does it seem possible to get all in one?

Help! I just asked for a 40% increase in pay to as I’m underpaid according to average of what others in my position make. I know I won’t get it, but feel crazy for asking!

For context: this is a lateral move, into a newish project manger position at my company . Was told it wouldn’t be a pay raise, I make 55k. I know this is low for PMs.


So I accepted a new job at a higher base of 75k but is it weird in an investment bank they do not offer a laptop or headset everything is done on the employee’s personal devices?


Like a lot of others, I’m underpaid. I’ve been with my company for 3 years having worked various roles and have been working as a researcher for a couple years now.

Our org is restructuring and part of that is salaries are being reviewed and adjusted.

What are the chances I get the adjustment I deserve? They will need to bump me up 35%. Am I being foolish or do I need to look elsewhere?


What’s the real difference between a verbal and written offer? If I accept the verbal offer, then see all the nitty gritty details in the written offer, I still have room and time to negotiate, right?

Hello everyone. I am going into negotiations soon with an early level startup and wanted to hear inputs. I’d be working remotely and live in a MCOL city. I have 2 years of data analysis experience and 1 year of experience as a database developer. On top of that, I have an additional year and a half of experience in a role that is more applied rather than direct. I have an MS in DS as well. I’m being considered towards an Associate DS role. What should my base and bonus comp expectations be?

Hey fishes, what's the salary range for a finance manager, with 15 years experience should be?


Last year, I negotiated my salary since given what my job responsibilities turned into, I was underpaid. COO offered an increased salary, I said I was hoping for this higher number according to my research so he went up a bit more (not reaching what I asked for) and guilted me for it.
An anonymous doc where coworkers entered their job info and salaries got passed around and even with my negotiated salary, I'm still getting paid less than peers in similar positions.
Any advice moving forward?

Is a 6% end of year salary increase reasonable for 2023, considering it’s supposed to be a “Merit” increase but also taking inflation into account?


Not sure if this is the area to ask this question but my CEO and COO is coming to our branch to do a meet and greet and I think this is the best opportunity to bring some suggestions that I think I want to see. First concern is that the place I work for is not paid holiday. We have 8 observant holiday in a year and we are required to use on these holidays. That's 64 hours of my pto I have to use? Is there a suggestion I can bring up where I have an option to work on those days? Or do flex time?


Hi All. I have been in my role for almost 2 years. In that time the company has promoted 4 people into my level. I have been made aware that they are actually making higher base wages than myself. How do I negotiate an increase without being too confrontational? Thanks in advance
