Let them drop the number but do your research on market value for new job. So let’s say they drop “we’re giving you a 4% raise” and you’re like, nope. Have the info to back it up “based on the current market, plus (insert some stats about why you’re awesome), I’d like you to consider an 8% increase.” Be prepared for them to discuss or say no. Congrats!

Agencies propose the salary first. Part of it is because there are budgets and they are figuring it out based on how much money there is around. Secondly, it’s about how much higher they can go from your base salary — in other words the original salary you were hired upon. Sometimes there are limitations to how high you can go based on your existing salary. Lastly, if your promotion is into something different than what you were doing (going into managing people/a team) then there is much more room for negotiation than if you are going from junior copywriter to Copywriter or to Senior Copywriter.

Thank you all so much! Very helpful.

(cont'd) best way to start that conversation? While sitting at the table or ask to speak later? I don't want to feel like I am overstepping. But I certainly don't want to potentially sell myself short.

You are lucky to get anything in the first place, in my own experience. I have never heard of anyone giving a number first. That’s for new jobs. Congrats on your promotion !

Agree with all of the suggestions, but would add that if they are not moving on the salary increase, see what else you can negotiate with them: 6-month performance review, extra PTO time, etc

Hey guys I’m staff2 in audit and will be promoted to senior in June. I would expect around 25-30% raise. Currently 100% remote work & don’t see going back to the office soon. Also, I need to pay 20k bonus back for breaking retention period. I recently got an offer for a valuation consultant position at mid size firm with 15% raise and go to office 3 days a week. Feel like valuation position is more attractive in long term but think getting lowballed extremely. What do you think?

I want to advance to mid-level (🤑) but also genuinely am concerned that maybe I’m not learning the ins and outs that I normally would as a junior right now.
