2.5% raise, 7.5% bonus. About what it was last year. Hoping I’m up for promotion mid year.

I got a larger than expected raise at ~6%. My manager said it was partially to bring my salary in line with market of new FSAs, since I am on track to get those letters later this year.

It's nice that I didn't need to shop around with recruiters to find out the salary of an FSA in my area and level of experience or pitch my case for a raise.

What’s it like working for a proactive company? Asking for a friend.

I think this is mostly an artifact of being the first person to get credentialed at this company, and management realizing they may have initially lowballed my salary for someone with an ACAS. Kudos to them for trying to be more competitive.
Then that raise is partly due to getting a designation and thus not exactly what the OP intended... although to be fair teasing out how much was due to the designation and how much was due to merit may be difficult if they didn't specifically give you a breakdown.

This is the correct answer.
