What to do if your employer pushes back?
You’ve prepared for the negotiations, presented your case and your manager declines the raise.
…so, what do you do next?
While disheartening, a push back on a raise does not mean you will not obtain a salary increase down the track. Can you ask your employer to give you exposure to different areas of actuarial work or different projects to improve your experience? Ask your manager for feedback on why the raise was not granted and outline next steps you can take to bring back to the negotiating table in the future.
