I want to ask for inflation raise. My EOY raise was 2.5%. Inflation in 2021 was 6.8%. Has anyone had any success in getting more of a raise by simply pointing this out and asking? I’m a 3rd year at a mid-sized litigation firm. Ideally, I would like to see a total 9.3% raise but would be content with 6.8 total. Any advice on how to approach this?
Hello fishes. I'm a MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience. I am terribly underpaid in my current org at 5.5 LPA after a recent promotion and annual appraisal. Another mid size consulting firm offered me 7.5 LPA but I am asking them around 9 LPA. Am I asking too much or shall I take the offer of 7.5 LPA

Good Morning All, Looking for feedback on promotion raises with a title change inter company. Going from a senior role to associate director role. I've read a lot of mixed reports on negotiating the % of the overall raise.
I’m 12 weeks pregnant (and very excited for it!) and not super loving my job, but was planning to stick it out for the maternity leave. An old boss reached out to me with a new opportunity offering a promotion with more ownership, remote flexibility, and a steady client. At what stage of the interview process do I mention that I am expecting?

What was your ‘merit’ increase this year? to know what the typical base salary increase was for this year after 2021 having 6-7% inflation. Has anyone successfully negotiated a pay raise for ‘merit’ (read: cost of living) raises? I got 5%. I started at my company beginning of Q2, and was rated as having ‘excellent’ client delivery, but brought down to ‘strong’ because I didn’t do much internal work.
Any idea on compensation for managers in International tax with jd/llm background at a big4 in a major city (sf, la, nyc, chicago)? Currently at a big4 as a senior but have been offered a industry job with a ~30%raise. Currently at 140k-ish at ey but want to understand how that will change once I make manager. Fyi - I enjoy my job in my current role so don’t want to move except for the pay raise. Any thoughts are appreciated.
Arbitrary promotion timelines aside, how does one know they’re ready to make the jump from senior to manager?

It feels like we are hitting a serious roadblock on our project. I’m an SA and the manager is somewhat lost tbh. Not much guidance from the serious team either + seriously time constraint cause it’s a short project. I’m usually very proactive but I can’t find a way through the problem we are trying to solve either…. What should I do to help?
Hurry up fishes.. I can still see few in hand salary asks in this bowl, join this bowl which is explicitly meant for that.

Considering an offer from EY. Can any current EY'ers advise on the following: 1) Unlimited PTO: I will be aiming for around 5 weeks (200 hours) of PTO in addition to the paid holidays and the summer and winter shutdowns (19 days). Is this feasible? 2) Any feedback on the 1Manhattan West office? Looks really nice and new. 3) Are you allowed to work from abroad occasionally? 4) Anything else I should know ( little-known perks / benefits / things that suck)
