What was Your Biggest Raise? - Page 3

post #31 of 46
I've gotten 10% raises the last 2 years, once in the same job and once in a new job in the same org. Unfortunately I started from about 40% of what I figured I'd be making when I graduated (I was happy to get it because it was still a lot more than part-time stuff I was able to cobble together while job hunting for a year).

Not exactly a yoy jump, but went from a base pay of $60k pre-MBA to $115k post-MBA.

29%, without switching jobs or having an offer in hand. My boss decided he needed to raise the pay scale before people started looking.

yoy = year-on-year

100% is indeed hella nice.

Yes, sorry that meant year-over-year. The jump did justify to some extent going to business school given the ~$70k tuition fee and ~$120k opportunity cost of missing out on 2 years of pay.

not exactly a yoy jump, either, but went from $1000 (for a year) pre-grad school to $115k (base) post-grad school. over 10,000% raise, i guess. not too shabby (on a different note) although not exactly a raise, my summer internship paid on the basis of ~$60k salary (for an "associate"); the job that was ultimately offered would have been ~$100k (as "manager"). so for an associate that was being promoted to manager, that's a pretty sweet raise.

I recently changed positions in my company. Went from a sales director (leading a sales team) to a hedge analyst/trader on our capital markets team. Salary more than tripled. BUT my overall income will be reduced by about 30-40% since I went from a salary + commission pay structure to salary + end of yr bonus structure.

I worked as a software engineer making $36K. I decided to start working on a contract basis and went to $80K in 1985. I have been doing the contract gig ever since then. (The numbers are for W2; 1099 basis was $108K for 1985.)

Before starting a new job I negotiated a 25% raise based on the cost of commuting from California to New Jersey, maintaining a second apartment, etc. By the time I started a couple of months later, a reorg had occurred and the hiring manager was elsewhere. Nobody ever mentioned commuting to the NJ office again, in fact I wound up working from home most of the time. I kept the raise.
