I got about 100% raise once when I switched jobs. Throw in the benefits, both real and fringe, and it was closer to a 120% raise.

Unfortunately a couple of months later my wife took about a 60% pay cut.

After residency training many MDs will go from very modest salaries to 8 times more - obviously this varies a lot depending upon the type of practice.

Got a 50% raise when I switched companies, then a 50% raise after a year with the new company. So in a 1 year span, a 125% raise.

re: Whats the Largest Increase in Salary you've ever experienced or seen? UPDATE
When I was 23 I left my first job that I worked after college and received a 28% increase in salary at my new job, later that year I left that department to go work for corporate (still the same organization) and I received a 57% bump. 5 months later I received a 30% increase (via promotion). This all occurred with the same 12 month period.

The beginning of my career was a pretty wild ride, in one year my salary increased 2.5x, it wasn't very high to begin with though

ETA: The jump in actual numbers was 28k to 70k in a year. I went from feeling really shitty about my career path to pretty good in a matter of 10 months

Without going to all the details, my salary grew north of 400% over the last decade. There are been a number of promotions and job changes within that led to the changes. The most dramatic changes occurred in the last two years or so.

Also, I wanted to say I will exclude lawyers and doctors because residency salaries are purposely set and controlled

Do you feel like you have more spending power? Or is it all gobbled up by the increase in COL

Promotions every couple years + a change of company or two is the fastest way to accelerate earning power. I don't believe that money should always be the driver of decisions but it's almost always the best way to capitalize on higher pay.

It's fascinating to watch employers undervalue its current employees and then have to replace and retrain. Easy to take for granted those that are already on board.

42.5%... Yesterday actually, so I got that going for me.

Agreed... I was pretty much given the reins in my second year. We’ll have maybe one strategic meeting per quarter to stay on the same page, but other than that, I do it how I want... I just finished my 5th year and we’ve had a lot of success, especially the last two years, but I’ve only gotten one raise and it was like 5%.

Now, I was treated well with bonuses, once got a 70+% bonus, but I needed more stability as I move into the having kids portion of my life, so I finally had to go have a heart to heart, and I basically told him I didn’t want to leave but we were going to have to do something with my base or I was going to have to look around. He knew it was coming and we hashed it out in about 5 minutes.

Tbh I've never understood it. As management, it's so much easier and more efficient to retain quality employees versus dealing with turnover and subsequently paying higher starting salaries but so many companies seem content being in a constant state of retraining.
