My promotion raise was only 4%. I just accepted a new offer. I feel like my expectations are never met and will never be met. I did negotiate last year by bringing a new offer. BDO didn't match it but gave me a bit more and told me they would get me up to the new number next year (this year). They did not so I'm out.

You’re going to need to leave if you want more money now. Same happened to me this year. I got 25% to go to a local firm with much better quality of life and a 10 minute commute.

PwC 1, I also got 25% at a local firm, 15 minute commute, and less hours. Congrats!

Nice! To add- my move was a lateral. Still a Sr, but making what I would as a Big 4 manager. Lol

I’m an early promoter manager at a small boutique firm and love my bosses, the wlb, and the pay. However, I feel I have become complacent. Should I try to move firms during this hot market knowing short term pay, job title, and MBA admission chances next fall will probably take a hit? I want to keep learning and growing but feel it has stagnated, and long term compensation upside is higher at a larger firm

Looking for title advice within data roles. My current role is a high level IC, I am looking at other roles and a little uncertain - should I consider Data Science roles, senior data science roles? Data Analyst Roles? Staff/manager data analyst? What would look like a step down ( in the future)? What would look like a lateral move? What titles are a promotion? There seems to be limited amount of standardization between data roles and titles.

The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
