So, I pass the CFA lvl1, I create the first default curves this company has EVER seen. I solidify processes and create automated reporting queries. I was able to streamline 50% of the processes and probably save the company a few million per year through the curves, and what do I get? 5% raise, but wait, I get the 3.5% "merit" raise in 3 months. OOOHHHH BOY!!! Good ole CEO is going to get ANOTHER 10 MILLION dollar raise, but I get 8.6%.
