With promotions and salary discussions around the corner for some folks, has anybody challenged their raise or bonus?

I haven’t heard of anyone challenge a raise or bonus and see it change without a competing offer from another firm. To my knowledge, year end comp adjustments and bonuses are not up for regular negotiation.

I didn't. Got an early promo/raise and bonus but I was on my way out. So I just accepted politely and thanked them. I figured that was the professional thing to do and there was no need to discuss something that did not matter (to me) any more.

I don't think this is normally done and the normal route to voice your lack of appreciation for small raises is to exit for a larger raise

I mean I complain every year on the call with my partner, but the last two years my raise has been about twice was I was thinking it would be sooo....hard to push too much. If its not above my conservative expectations this year I'll probably just look elsewhere around bonus payout time. My salary is still like 25% below what I'm worth on the market right now.

I negotiated my senior raise in Nov 2020. Things are closer to normal now, so I would assume it shouldn't be seen as taboo to negotiate now

I don't think so. I was deserving of it and still received a bonus a month later

When do we (Pwc) hear about our raises/bonuses?

Damn that’s late.

I think this is a one time deal - you cannot continually push back on your salary when others do not and expect leadership to react favorably. I would think about whether now is the right time to challenge it, if so then go for it, otherwise bide your time.

I challenged mine and didn’t win... but I left with a promise from the partner that I wouldn’t leave her office upset at next year’s meeting. Maybe coincidence, but it def worked out the following
