I had the meeting with the IT director yesterday and put forward my case. He had already prepared a new job role and extra responsibilities for me ready for the 1-2-1 but what was missing was any talk about salary. I think he really thought I was going to take on the new role (which I am already doing anyway) and just say thank you.
I opened the meeting by saying I have something I need to clear up before we started and away I went. I was told today that he will have information for me this afternoon or Monday so I will wait and see. The devil will be in the detail and I am sure the company will want some clause to retain me for 12 months should they agree to anything (he said as much in the meeting).
I might take the all or nothing advice and find another job so I have that up my sleeve should things not go to plan.
I am planning to ask my empolyer tomorrow for a pay rise and I am wondering if anyone has any advice. I have never asked an employer before for a pay rise. I know the small IT company I work for charges me out at 4 times per day what I get paid and also I win business for them and I am crucial in the delivery of new business. I also found out today that a company will sign up to services with the company I work for if I am technical lead on the project.
I know I have to ask and this is my moment but I am not very good at asking for anything. I have a meeting already scheduled with my boss.
