A raise for what exactly? I love when consultants ask for a raise or bonus and have nothing to say, no data or rationale.

I’ve gotten about 30% two years in a row. Is this not normal?

A raise after a year isn’t unreasonable, but you need to do your homework to figure out how much. Some things to think about: * Is there a standard cycle/time frame for raises at your company? * How does your current compensation compare to the salary range for your position? For comparable positions at other companies? * Have you had a performance review yet? If so, how was your rating?

Not really sure what board is proper for this. But has anyone had an experience where your boss required paperwork for a raise? I started my job as an account manager at a less than reasonable salary, but I was under the impression that I would be able to grow and would have help. A lot of work is dumped on me at one time and all the responsibility falls to me, it's often way to much work for one person. I tried to negotiate a raise with my boss and lead with the fact that I was moving to the area and the salary was not conducive to rent here. He cut me off after my first point and said he'd figure it out. I never got to tell him about my workload. Long story short he required a lease agreement for me to get this raise. It took quite a while to get one... had a few places fall through. My landlord is in the middle of moving so was only able to forward me a PDF of the document that was unsigned, until she has time to meet. Now my boss wants a signed lease with all my roommates signatures too. This is not part of the contract I signed that simply says "provide a lease agreement"... tips?

Passed the in-person with Google and they have had me on hold for team matching now for 5+ months. In that time, I've gotten promoted and a 30k raise. How /when should I bring this up?

Hi guys! 2 questions if anyone knows: 1. Can I have my home address be in a different state while my home office is in a different state? My roommates and I are thinking of breaking our lease due to COVID-19 since we’re all quarantining out of state. I’m currently on OPT and my H1B will kick in in October. I am allowed to work from another state on OPT but I’m concerned on whether updating my home address to a different state will raise concerns. 2. Can this out of state address be my home...
