Yes, but Some time what happen, that you are very much satisfied with your current position in the company, & your emoluments makes you dissatisfied only. In that case you dont wanna leave the present company but seeking good salary revision within it & a fobia of stability & satisfaction for change makes you begger to your employer.

A friendly advice from my side.
You all seem to be quite young and having some years of experience in HR. Mail me your resume (with detailed description about your experience) at and I'll revert to you. Also scribble down your family details and your readiness to relocate.

I remember one thing which my professional and highly ethical boss use to say ' salary is commanded not demanded' and 'beggers are not choosers'. it may seem little harsh but its true. I would advise you to make your boss dependent on you, develop skills which your boss or organisation value. be thankful to your boss that he has given you an opportunity to you. believe me ..I have done it myself. I never demanded but assumed all responsibilities of dept. I have left job but my previous bosses miss me for my work.
wish you all the best....

The first few years are formative years. You learn the tricks of the trade. Mentally and psychologically this is the time when your last thought should be money. have you ever seen any one who is really good actually complain about lack of opportunities. This complaint will only come from people who are average / mediocre or lesser. The secret is to become GOOD if not Excellent and the only way to that is work, learn, work more in these 3 - 4 years. Rest (finance & fame) will Follow.
Their is science behind communication and you need to learn it. Here is a scenario that should get all of you to think...
Bandna had been promised an increment in 3 months. At the end of the 4th month, she goes to her boss and says... I would like to sit with you to take feedback of my performance and how i have not met your expectations. Since i have not received my increment as promised by you, there must be something that you are not really satisfied about my performance. Since you have not mentioned the same to me, i thought i must have a conversation with you regarding the same. This will help me not only to improve myself but also to bridge the gap so as facilitate my increment.
What do you think would have happened in this case...:-)
There will always be a good way, a bad way, a wrong way and the right way... The trick is to understand which should be used when!!!

i have been following the thread for sometime now. Navneet has put across the scenario in apt words.
Without taking sides I would like to highlight that once an individual gets into the professional mode , things are bound to be different. There is a huge difference between theoritical knowledge which an individual studies at college and what is followed in the real world. Real world is full of possibilities and its up to an individual to realise the professional opportunity at work. Sometimes it may be straightforward and sometimes the opportunites may be hidden.
In this case Bandna, the straightforward communication was that "There will be an increment after 3 months", but the hidden opportunity might be that the management is watching your performance and still deciding.. At times there are instances of probation period getting extended and the increment dates gets postponed.
But again, do keep your eyes & ears open. Observe things around you. It may also turn out to be that the Management has a policy to hire freshers, get maximum work done with nominal compensation and then let the person leave the Organisation without even a standard exit formalities. I have worked in both kinds of set up and this is a first hand information which I shared.
Finally, incase you decide to leave, go ahead and do it. Keep you dignity & self respect at the top of the priority list but also keep your common sense handy.
