Re: Getting creativewhen a raise is not an option
@ Mejiac. A good option when pay raise is not possible.I actually felt that companies were more willing to go with this option other than pay raise.

Getting creativewhen a raise is not an option
A trend I'm seeing is that while a sa!art raise at a given moment is not viable for the company, asking for more flexibity with the schedule is a good drwpaw back. Many have opted to work a certain amount of days remote, and meetings are scheduled considering this. Also the company itself has made investment in video conferencing technology to support this

When to rock the boat?
To the community, isn't staying stable for a couple of years seen like a good thing? (Only asking since at my current assignment I'm seeing a lot of turnover, with many consultants leaving with less than a year.)

Re: Big Bump
T @globalpos, Thank you for your comment, As mentioned in the article, "where you stack up compared to others in your role, industry, and location. " This I think is where I currently fall, since when I look around my peers, I'm one of the youngest and at times perform junior roles, yet my compensation is adequate for my current position...or am I fooling myself?

Re: One of the best things I did was
I agree. It is good to have something written up to go by while having that uncomfortable conversation. The bullet points ensure you forget nothing because of nervousness.

Other advice?
Alison and Progman2000 shared two good examples of what can happen if you just ask. Who else has had that conversation with a manager? Why do you think you were successful -- or not? Would you have done anything differently in hindsight?

Re: One of the best things I did was
Progman, thanks for sharing your experience. Having those bullet points on paper can help when you enter the conversation with the boss as well. Depends on the person's management style.
