re: When / how to ask for a raise

Like some have said...why in the hell did you accept the job being paid under the mean?

If it was b/c of lack of experience you still don't have the experience.

Good employees don't have to go to good employers to ask for a raise. Ie, if your worth it they'll want to keep you. If you have to ask, either your expendable, don't deserve it, or you work for a bunch of plugs

In either case your future is not with these people

I find this thread of interest to me. I accepted my job well under the mean, due to it being my first job out of college, and I had to learn the technology. Now that I am a year in, I am expecting to bargain to get closer to the mean. Did I screw up by starting out so low? Or did I follow a protocol similar to several, where I took what I could get?

Wait a minute. Isn't the mean what the average worker is making? And by average, aren't we talking about those who are mid-stream in their career?

If this is your first job, and you're only 6 months in, you should definitely be making below the mean.
