Is it outrageous to ask for a 6% raise after a year?

Make a list of the ways you're adding value to the company. Get your evidence of comparables. Keep in mind if you ask for 6, you'll probably end up settling for less, assuming you get anything at all.

Yearly raises happen every year for everyone apparently. Im trying to get a head start before the budget is determined. I fulfilled my role successfully and made decent profit on my last project. My role is pretty high pressure and i think im doing a decent job.CNeufeld wrote: ↑ Make a list of the ways you're adding value to the company. Get your evidence of comparables.

And be mindful of the timing of your request, and the company's financial situation.

I think it will be tough unless your role has significantly changed. You accepted the job less than a year ago and you thought at that time it was market. Unless the demand for your job has changed, it’s hard to now argue that you’re below market.

Sounds like you are unsure. Whats the feedback on your performance through out the year? This line should read "I am doing an exceptional job, exceeding expectations" if you are looking at asking for such a large increase. If you are, you may get a nice bonus, I highly doubt they will provide such a large increase after a year. There is no consistency and what if you fall off year 2?

This is not true a lot of the time. Some companies will only do the minimum amount they have to to retain an employee, even if that employee is great.eblend wrote: ↑ I never asked for a raise in my career until very recently (after 10+ years in the industry), but I always got decent raises. If you do a standup job and outperform others, the company will want to keep you and will give you a raise. If you are doing nothing more than what most people do, then you won't get much in return. The only reason I asked for a raise this time around is because I know my value to the company and I'm the only one with my position in the company of over 1500 people and like 15 offices across North America.
If you ask without really earning it, it could hurt you more than help.

Just a decent job and you want 6% raise? How dare you!!

When you say "closer to the market", do you think you are underpaid?
