It's that time of year again at my company and I'm pleased to share that I received a raise. This year, I moved up 6.8% to $63,000 (I was at $59,000). I'm really quite satisfied with the increase and feel as though my contributions to my team and my company have been recognized. In a time where many people aren't receiving increases (still! which I think is crazy!), I was a bit hesitant to share the numbers - but Jordan and I are really pleased plus it means an update to the budget once again (we're crossing our fingers that he'll see an increase this summer as well).
Here's a bit of a snapshot for those that are curious of my salary progression since starting with my company:
So..you may be wondering, how much I will be taking home? That's the question I wanted to know too. I won't show you all the math (there was a lot, including adjusting for my benefit deductions) - but i'll give you the summary:
The first two boxes are what may pay was (bi-weekly) based on $59K the second two boxes are based on my bi-weekly pay at $63K.
The net increases is $175 and some cents (no I didn't share the math for the two months where there's three pays, but it would basically be the same w/out the benefit deductions).
