Dear Seniors,

Good Morning.....

I need some suggestions from you. I have done MBA in HRM & Marketing Management. I have one year experience in HR & Admin. Presently I am working in Pharmaceuticals company as a Executive in HR & Admin.

On my joining during salary negotiation, my boss said that he will give increment after 3 months. I waited 6 months but no increment. After the copletion of 6 months, I talked to my boss about my increment then he said that send email me about your increment request. I have sent to him.

I have sent mail before October salary. But there is no action. Again I started waiting but still I did't get any increment in November salary.

I analyse one thing that my boss gives increment to those people who are regularly asking about their increments & who put their resignation in front of him.

I feel liitle shame to ask again & again about increment. I am helpless. Please suggest me right way. I want to write a letter to him. Please suggest me what can I write in that letter.

Waiting for your advice.

In most of the Owner Based Company it happens, Work sincerely & when you will get better opportunity take a decision. Better not to beg for increment for several times.....

Yes, You are right. It means I have to find another opportunity. But I know when I will resign then he will offer me increment. Then I want to give him reply. What should I say ????

Hi,
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.

But there is nothing like job satisfaction. No P.F. for all employees & there is no LTA, leave in cashment... nothing...... I am not satisfied with this org. There is no professionalism. Acc. to my job responsibilities, org is not compensating me. My responsibilities are going to increse day by day but no salary increment.

there is lack of unprofessionalism in most of the owner based companies no matter its pvt. ltd. or ltd. all are like typically baniya shop or lala ji ki dukan seniors enjoy a good compensation while subordinates like us do all things and are responsible if any mistake happens. i my case my manager don't even check my work before signing the papers and if he has sign some large bunch he ask me to do signature on his behalf. there is no "unity of direction" manager will ask you to do something but owner ask to do something else but ultimately you are the one who suffers from this. I am just pissed with all this.

Hello to all of You,
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.
Rgds,

Most of the owner based companies boss do not have the feelings of their staff at heart, rather they are always after their set goals and targets. they won't mind whether you are exhausted or not. i will advise you keep focused on the job, work hard, make your best show forth, and above all look for other openings. when you are able to deliver, your boss will live at your mercy.

Dear Bandana,
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....

This is quite an interesting yet amusing discussion. Interesting because it surprises me how people expect the earth & the moon in the initial stages of their career. Amusing because they see the seniors enjoy their fruit of labor and cannot understand why... your seniors incidentally went through the same grind that all of you are talking about today. The ones who learned grew and became successful, the others are still grinding away their life.

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!!!

Cheers

Hi All,

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.

Thanks.

Avoid Inferiority Complex ang go ahead ask him for salary increment infrent of crowd ok or u can tell him or give him resignation mentioning the reason is / was the increment

i like to suggest here not to serve notice period at all before you quit and search for better options in the market. in a company which has no policy like this then there is not required to update them for your any step ahead.
Thanks !!

First of all a very heartly thanks to all people who have contributed their valuable advice(s) and comments but i am very disappointed & disagree with "Mr. Navneet" as he asking that why we guys cann't appriciate our seniors hard work at there intial stage of there career. we are not here to criticize our bosses we are not saying that they haven't work hard we just only want that we should get the appropriate remunation. thinks have changed alot over a few years time period and i suppose there is no need to eleborate all things, otherwise i agree with Mr. Navneet.

thanks every one.....
I have decided to work here until I don't get good opportunity and I don't want to serve any notice period to him. I know he will definately offer me an increment on that day but I will not accept.
