"Job raise. Is 2.5% good? Should I be as irritated as I am or thankful?"


  

          

Year End reviews were given yesterday. These fools gave me a 2.5% raise, roughly an extra $48 per check. No bonus structure whatsoever. Been with company 5 years, this is my 3rd raise. I'm pissed because company grew, made acquisitions, hired more people... and I had a stellar review according to my bosslady. I expected at least a 5% raise given everything I do here. As valuable as I am... I expected a promotion. Should I start looking elsewhere or start applying aggressively within the company; company is promising and I really don't want to leave because we may get bought out and that's going to be $$$$$$, but still no guarantee of that happening. For now, I'm seriously just pissed off.

2.5% sucks, but no one ever went broke making a profit or gain.
