Re: I've Got a Secret
@tjgkg asking for raises is not always a simple issue. In some environements raises are set simply for cost of living increases or for seniority, and actual productivity or achievement has no bearing on it whatsoever. Also some places simply underpay because they think they don't have the budget to match what others pay, so pointing out that your job pays X% more elsewhere doesn't really get you anywhere. On the contrary, it can just make the managers consider you at risk of leaving, so they may start looking to replace you before you are prepared to make the move yourself.
