April 2019 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

If we pass, how quick should we expect a raise, how much of a raise?

The answer varies all over the map. It really depends on the company you work for and whether or not they view the PE license as valuable.

There are many other threads on this board that address this...but I think some of them might be hidden until you list you license as “PE” in your profile.

I'm pretty calm.  Partly because I've agreed with myself to accept the results and have a plan to move forward either way.

 

1.  I pass.  Celebrate with copious liquor and maybe take a day off.  Then complete the CA application.

2.  I fail.  Cry for a minute then tell everyone so I am not tempted to try to hide my shame.  Then roll right into studying the key areas where I felt weak immediately after the exam.  Embrace the suck once again.

Same, except gelato because I don't drink and there's a local place that makes it fresh daily.

Do not expect anything. It varies from company to company. I am the only PE in my office and still have not received any hike. The only kind of guaranteed thing is that you will receive a lot of interview calls with potential pay hike and promotion. Find the right opportunity and make a switch if your company don't value your PE.

I work for a municipality.  PE license gets you promoted which is 4 grades higher, 5% a grade.  It ends up being a 21.55% raise when it's all said and done, but when you first get promoted you get moved down 3 steps so it ends up being a 5% raise initially.

Screw the raise, I will start my own practice and tank the Juggernaut I am working for. Mark my words, or don't. Completely up to you and what you want to mark. This is a free country :)

Two types of torture, one comes from taking the exam and then the second to wait for the results.

But yes, please show us PASS!

I mean, sure It's possible...  in the same way that it's possible to roll a two at the craps table.

Don't get your hopes up for that day. Just because it happens occasionally doesn't mean it's a safe bet though.

Emails have been sent out pretty late in the day, including after regular business hours.
