If you are not already doing so.

Thought I would share this real world experience with some of the newer developers here.

Do you think you deserve a promotion or a raise in pay? Ask for it.

You can't expect anyone to advocate for you other than...you. I try to take care of my team, and reward those who are on the radar, but sometimes that falls through the cracks and I miss things.

I recently had a team member who felt they were being overlooked on promo/raise. That team member advocated for himself. They brought their concerns to me, we discussed, and now they are scheduled for promo and raise.

It doesn't hurt to ask. If you work at a company where asking can have negative consequences, then you are working at the wrong company and you need to move on.

Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
