Let's say the year end review is approaching. Do you usually just wait until then to see what you get in terms of raise or promotion, or do you try to bring these up with your manager beforehand?

Depends on the company. Some have set scales depending on review and some can be negotiated.

Ours are annual, and performance based. We do the reviews and give a raise up to the maximum allowed by the approved budget for that year, currently 3.5%. For promotions, there has to be a new position created or someone has to leave, then the hiring manager decides whether to keep it in-house or open to the public, based on the potential for good candidates among the lower level staff.

I generally do not ask for raises or mention this stuff to management. I wait to hear what they have to offer and if I don't like it, I return to the job market.

many times, people try to get you to play their gain (this is were they establish rules of the game). So it might happen that you go management asking for a good review and they start negotiating on stuff that is not in your job description, or stuff that has nothing to do with your objectives/interests.
