I’ve had a bit of a running commentary about asking for a raise, here, here and here. At the end of the process, I didn’t get what I was looking for. At least I thought I got something. Well, I must have misunderstood, because it didn’t show up in my paycheck when I expected. After a little clarification, it seems that the time when I can expect the raise is kind of vague, but coming soon by all accounts.
A huge monkey-wrench got thrown into the works when I got confirmation that I will still be making 15% less than my peers. And the way things have been going with recent policy changes, I think those peers will be looking for more money as well, widing the gap even further.
I’m glad that I’ve had a good two week head-start on the job search.
