Annual merit increase

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Death from Above, Dec 20, 2007.

  1. So while we're on the subject of compensation, what kind of raises are you
    all getting? I went without raises for about 3 years during the dot com
    bust but over the last 4 years I've gotten decent raises of between 4% and
    6%.

    I'm coming up on my 1 year anniversary here so haven't had a raise yet but
    word around the water cooler is it should be around 5%. Not great but not
    bad either.

    That is poor. No raise for 3 years.
    Maybe you should try Viagra.

    I have recieved perf. increases of approx 2.5-3% in addition to the COLA
    raise of 3% the past 4 years. This year, however, I have reach my max
    comp, for perf increases and will not be getting it even though my
    manager has rated me "exceeds expectations". I still get COLA, but no
    perf raise. My boss is attempting to get me a cash bonus instead...bless
    her heart...
