When getting a promotion as a PR account executive (to an SAE) - what would be an average salary bump? Is it normal to negotiate?

Ours looks significant (20% ish) but you lose overtime, so it often means people actually end up in a worse position. I believe the goal is to set expectations with your boss early rather than negotiate. Reason being that once raises are announced the money has already been distributed. Congrats to you guys for doing raises and promotions already!

You should negotiate every salary offer that comes your way. You leave money on the table when you don’t. The worst thing they can say is no; you’re not going to get fired for asking.

FH is big on giving everyone a title boost but with little pay movement. I saw only a 5K raise when moving from AS to MS.

My other half, who I have been with for nearly a decade, just doesn’t understand the level of demand and hours required to do my job. Since WFH, it seems that having seen what I go through during the day (call after call after call) and the fact that I’ve been putting more hours into working has put a strain on our relationship. I also happen to work on a very demanding piece of business which lately, has required me to be at the desk for hours on end, sometimes not being able to spend dinner...
