Cont I realize during covid that I should be happy to get a raise at all. But I'm trying to gauge if it's worth it to stay at my current company long term when comp increases seem small.

Thanks TM1!

PwC CMAAS offer in hand, but one thing holding me back from accepting at the moment is the work/life balance. I’m transferring from audit. I understand work/life is a little crazy right now in CMAAS. Is this expected to cool down? What were hours like before things got crazy? Better than B4 audit hours? Thanks!

My off-cycle promotion was announced today as it was getting deferred from last 2 year-end cycles. I was happy with the news and then I was told 3% raise. I am totally shocked and feel rather insulted at the number. Reason- I was already at upper range in the current title! (I know not too much context here) How should I talk to my manager? How much to express? Am I over reacting.
