Uplift was 1.1%, but I went up a spine point giving the equivalent of 3%. I'm going to have to step my game up as I run out of spine points at this grade in a few months. Or I could just coast, but winter inflation is coming.

Should find out on Monday if I'm going to get some sort of bonus too. I'm hopeful [EDIT: given the extra work I've had to do over the last year], and if it doesn't turn up it might be time to look for a move.

Nothing to complain in the world of data analysis/ science. Still a noobie, and got +40% by changing job. Performance are good so I'll aim for an extra 15% in Jan. I still got 1% company pay rise which was not expected

Just had a pay rise:  3.6% on my basic and OTE.

Also given some shares, vesting over 4 years.

 

Why create two threads? :(

Payrise agreed Jan (contract). Boss nervy now not bringing it up, personally I see a good old downturn approach-eth. Last conversation I suggested I was getting tempted by a 2 day week :D. He said he couldn't consider that. I replied, 'That's what my wife said'. I am starting to think I like watching Boss squirm more than the few hundred quid payrise. Inflation changes the game ;).

Not been with my company a year so not eligible yet :( but high rated performers getting 0.8%, 1.2% or 1.8% based on performance grades, not even keeping up with CPI, let alone RPI :(

My day rate is about 25% less than last year. Such is the contract world !

Next year it could be lower or higher. Just got to go along with it.

0%, been that way for 3 years now, am overpaid for what I do, so won't be changing jobs till I am pushed .. on the flip side, mortgage is repaid , energy bills will be 80% less for the next 17 years, hatches are battened for the coming disruption ..

4% + a load of stock and options. Engineering.

If you're getting less than inflation, then ... erm ... why aren't you changing jobs?

Can I be an engineer with no qualifications in engineering? If so where do I apply?

Tad bit less than 20% plus 5% bonus last year. Next one coming up in a few months. Not expecting it to be as generous but will be switching jobs if it's not up to scratch.

Yes.  Sorry who do you want to speak to?  please hold I'll put you through.  Engineer is everyone today...

 

New job, +9K over last and 10% bonus.  Inflation everywhere, post office round the corner from new job wants 90p for cadbury caramel.  When I was a kid the BP garriage down the road sold coke for 23p a CAN, just 2p more than the corner shop and Polo's were 8p a pack.  Suddenly I don't feel so better off esp when 2 houses down my road where i rent that have been on market for over a year, well over priced IMHO have both just sold.  Only good thing, rent has not gone up, yet

Is that a joke?

I can imagine Gordon Brown awarding high rated performers a rise of 0%.

2% and 5% bonus. Lowest in 9 years but serves me right for criticising a partner in the confidential end of year reviews! Won't do that again!

who cares...?  1,2 or 3%?  it hardly makes any difference.  Income is not the point...it is all about wealth now and particularly property wealth.  I am surprised when I hear on the news what a worry it is that inflation is marginally above ave wage growth...what is it now ..?  2.7% v around 2%?  So around 0.7% lower income in real terms..?  Well so what when the cost of your typical house in the neighbourhood has increased by £50-£100,000 over the last year...That is rather more than 0.7% of my income...its all a load of bull.  I don't work for the money anymore...its mostly confiscated by the landlord classes in rent anyway...I work for my own dignity and self realisation.
