A bit underwhelmed, I was expecting a job grade bump. I got 3.5% vs a company average of 2.75%, and a 50% bump in my annual equity (3yr vesting on that one, it's long-term comp). So it's not horrible, but I expected more based on prior conversations with management.

Time to go back to HR and see if we can re-write my job description to get the job grade moved up. Ugh.

Base pay 20% larger than last year, strictly due to ASA salary bump, nothing for COL. I can't find it in me (currently) to be upset about 0% COL, but ask me next year if I feel the same

Did you get 20% raise on base just for receiving ASA title? That's a big raise. Or did you also get raises for passing exams and getting ASA in the same year?

No raises for exams.

I was 5x (x not an integer) below DWS salary midpoint last year (I doubt it's uniform, but let's go with midpoint because it's easily calc'd) for my exams + experience, and now I'm 1.4x below midpoint for ASA + experience after my raise.

I could change jobs and get an additional 7-12x in salary (based on job postings for my area/LOB), but I'm still learning where I am, believe in "the mission", have better than average benefits, and coworkers I respect, the sum of which is worth more than extra salary to me.

Like I said, ask me next year if I feel the same. Probably will, I don't know the breaking point on salary versus "fulfillment" for me, but I currently assume it's between 2 and 4 years of no COL adjustment, and if I didn't have 4 kids in or about to enter college, it would probably be longer, assuming all else remained equal.
