Am I Being Greedy?

I am so disappointed but I can’t say that I was any shocked or surprised at it. I was expecting it but it doesn’t mean that I feel ok about it.

As I had mentioned earlier in my blog, I got promoted in the begining of July of last year. I didn’t get any grade change or a promotion hike. I asked for some (in August) and was told by the DGM of training that I would get a pay hike and that she hoped that it would meet my expectations. I also spoke to the local DGM who takes care of our  branch here about it. September rolled by and nothing happened. October came and went. I concentrated on my work.

By the end of November, I knew that I had to do something. It took me a while to dig up the courage, infact it was the second week of December when I asked the DGM about it again. She gave me no excuses about the delay but feed me a story about how she was going to push for my promotion to Assistant Manager for the new financial year. I told her that it was fine but that I wanted the pay hike that she told me that I would get. She then said that she wasn’t sure that she could do it but on further insistence from me said that she would push for it. I spoke to the center head and the DGM of HR and I was told end of January.

Now January has come and gone and still no pay hike. I waited last evening to see if my salary had hit my account but a quick check at the ATM revealed no salary at 7 pm. I went home and watched tv & waited till 11 pm when I got an alert that my salary had been deposited in my account. A quick second later I saw that it was the normal one and that my hike has not materialized! Even though I was expecting it, I was pretty much bummed out. I think I deserve the pay hike, I did get promoted and I am doing a good job. I would like to move out, find a small & nice place for me and start living my life. I can’t afford to at what I am currently getting. It’s been 7 months!

  1. NOoo you are not being greedy. You had the promotion and with that should come a pay rise.. it’s not fair.

    I have similar issues at work, being expected to do tasks that others get paid highly for and still no rise for me either.

    Seems employers think they can just walk all over us…

  2. I was promised it twice and both times they have no come through. And the worst part is that they do not have the decency to atleast inform me about it. Both times!
