More than 70% of respondents asked for a raise but only 21% got it. Success is in the details.
Does having a salary range that tops $100,000 mean you’re savvy about asking for a raise? The most recent survey conducted by TheLadders.com, reveals some surprising trends among the executive ranks.
The survey conducted on its web site, www.theladders.com, garnered a total of 1,378 respondents. Happily for employers, both men and women in this earning range stated they don’t tend to change jobs in order to get more money (only 4% indicated that would be their course of action). Instead, more than 70% confirmed they’ve asked for a raise and 61% say they’ve asked for a raise with a positive outcome.
