ihatecomputers5315191dJust ask for a raise. Prepare some good arguments beforehand. No one takes it personal, just ask!
crowdsurfer323191d@rutee07 @ihatecomputers I've been working there for about a year, and I keep getting feedback that my work is excellent.. I've had some medical issues lately, but I've gotten offers from other companies for the same position but it's a lot more in terms of salary... I really like the team I'm in now, but I still want to earn what I think I'm worth...
Currently getting 3500/mo
Same perks, same holiday, etc
Can I just bring this offer to my boss? Or would/should that be weird?
Wack6766191dApproach your boss and tell him how it is, that according to your research an employee in your position should make between 4'200-4'500 and if he/she sees any chance on adjusting your pay to the usuall market value. If not, start looking for a new job. If they're open for a raise, also have them define goals for you to reach to get a future raise, like velocity, quality and so on, because that way, the next time you won't have to ask/beg for a raise, but can simply produce the agreed upon terms for another raise.
mundo034913191dAsk for a development plan, talk about wage ranges, activities, responsibilities.
If you can demonstrate you are already ahead of that plan, you can push for a salary increase.
If they can't give you such plan, it means they have no idea hoe to do things so just ask for it straight away and set a development plan for yourself.
