How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.
My performance review is coming up. I have a degree in Info Systems so I didn't ever think I'd be in consulting. If I make 62.5k, how much should my raise be after 8 months?

Consulting career is ruining my marriage and relationships with kids. I'm obsessed with promotion and don't feel close to my family anymore. I need help
I'm a first year and just received a raise, even though I haven't been at the firm for a year yet. It's a great amount, and I'm so thankful. The partners told me in person but I'm just wondering if I should ask them to put it in writing, just to confirm it and in case anything happens down the road? If I learned anything as an attorney, it's to always have everything in writing lol

Creatives at great agencies – how’d you get hired? Referral? Recruiter? Online job listing? Would love to know
I’m wondering from those who have moved from account to strategy how you’ve liked it and what were your motivations, pros and cons of the jump and what you think about the trajectory of your career and salary now. The head of strategy at my agency recently said I could be on her team and I’m extremely intrigued but surprised as I just always thought I’d be on the account side since I do so well there.
