Depends on level and prior roles. Imo it’s acceptable to jump around every two years.

At junior levels, 2yrs/job is fine. But I think once you're gunning for more senior positions - atleast having 1-2 jobs with 5+ yrs of experience and some promos/increased responsibility will look very good

How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask.

I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.
