My spouse used to be on a fiscal year rating system. Rate changes were July/August every year. Not actuarial but not uncommon.

Really? I've never seen the average formally disclosed. It typically gets around a bit by word of mouth, I think. I know what I get, and what I'm allocated to split amongst my reports, and assume that's a pretty good proxy for my division's average. No idea what other divisions get. We are a monster company, I assume there is a variation across divisions.

Also this. Our fiscal year ends 3/31, we typically get word in April or perhaps early May, raises effective on my first check in June. Which is also when things like the bonus and equity are doled out.

I got 2% last year. I expect another 2% or less this year. Will find out probably by the end of this month.

Just stop passing exams and then you'll stay in the top 10%

This "10th percentile"... I do not think it means what you think it means.

But also lol.

Because of Trump's tax reform we're getting at least 15% more pay.
