I believe standard is about 15% max but it probably depends on market and other factors. As a sample, I want from 70k as a senior in Philly to 100k in NY to 115k after a raise.

At the same agency? 7-9%, realistically. 2-3 for annual cost of living, plus 6 or so for the promotion. That being said, you deserve 12-15. But you prob won’t get it until you go somewhere else

@CS1 you’re not wrong there - a lot of those were before my time and involved leadership changes and right level-ing. That said, 15-20% raises at big promotion jumps within the same agency are more than possible and I’ve been both recipient and giver of those many times at more than one agency

Man that’s a lot less than I thought! Is that just for mid to senior, or would same percentages apply for senior to ACD?

Just promoted someone on my team last week from mid to senior with a 21% raise. She’s fucking great and has had 7 promotions in 5 years

Private or independent agencies (that are doing well financially, mind) are able to do a lot better by their people, and the good ones do.

My last agency was independent and I had multiple promotions with 20%+ increases in the decade or so I was there.

Unfortunately, with the way agency finances have been, that’s what I’ve been seeing for most promotions lately. It is my understanding that it wasn’t always this way, but that that’s the new normal.

I will show you this simple method to stay at your current agency and consistently earn 50% raises with your promotions

My number could also be off, because my agency increased the bonus percentage with every promotion - a way of promising you money that they can take away a year later

Hello Folks,
I joined Intel Bangalore 2 months ago. I have a few questions I would love if someone from Intel who has been with this company could answer.
1) I am at grade 6 with ~3.5 YOE with compa ratio around 120% which looks higher than average. Will this result in lesser hike for me during appraisal? How much hike can I expect?
2) I received less RSUs compared to other people as I saw from the posts here. Any chance of getting RSUs during appraisal?
3) Any Intl relocation possibility?
