Well, it's that time of the year again...salary review time.
Most of you know that my career in in Human Resources. Specifically right now, I work in the Learning & Development department of my organization. I've been with my organization now for about 7 years, and have about 8-9 years combined experience.
Given the state of the economy right now for my industry, there's not a lot of butter to spread around - but that said, I'm feeling very good about the review of my salary.
I'm technically still below the 100th percentile (the mid-point for my job), but received a 5% wage increase when the average was closer to 2.5. I feel like my manager really went to bat for me, and was able to get an increase that is fair and reasonable.
I've gone from $75K, to $78,750. Wahoo!
