My firm has not announced any raises yet even though the market has gone up (A LOT) and firms in the area all have done so. I’ve decided to demand a raise to the compensation committee. But struggling to come with a number. I’m class of 2014 but have gone on four maternity leaves 😂. Any suggestions???? I’m in a smaller city (not CA/NYC/DC etc) and at a pretty big regional firm.
Unprofessional post- I’m seeing my new coworkers in person for the first time this weekend because I was a remote hire. But I have gained so much weight since covid that I feel like people are going to be disappointed when they see me in person. Because my professional headshot is from 2 years ago and I don’t look like that anymore. What do I do? I really want to cancel.

My dad passed away 10 years ago.He was a “good”dad while alive (not the best husband). I spent lot of my youth/adult life fixing his mistakes after he died, which weren’t mine to fix. While I have tried to forgive him for myself, the relationship with his memory is complicated. Our family friends (husband and wife) who really were there for us in every sense after his death came to visit. That “uncle” is the closest thing to a father that I have. Today, I really wished he had been my father.

For my yearly review I tried to request for a bigger compensation with a few reasons on how I have taken up more responsibilities and helped sustain/grow business to which I receive a response where they still need a follow up email from me to justify my effort in the past year. The people making the decision are all new so they haven’t been a part of my journey. I know I deserve this raise. How do I make it more convincing?
