EY

How common is it for an employer to pro-rate a salary increase if you joined in middle of the year? For context, annual raises are given out in July each year. I joined in January. Normally, I would be getting an 8% raise, but because I came in at about the half year mark, they giving me ~4%. My jaw about just dropped when big boss said this. I mean, inflation doesn't pro-rate. Thoughts on this?
