End of year is coming up, and our company did really well. They are investing more $$$ in our organization and are worried people will leave since competition for tech talent is fierce.
My boss asked me point blank what I want my bonus to me. I've literally never had this happen before! I've always just been given something. My initial discretionary bonus (when I joined) was slated at $20K, but I started comparing my Total Compensation to TC at other companies at Levels.fyi and I would probably be making like $100K-160K more if I switched. Should I ask for $100K? Is that crazy? I'm nervous about seeming ungrateful and asking for something that is WAY above the discretionary bonus they initially listed when I joined.
Any advice or thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
