Thanks, everybody!!

Last week our company division's VP told us our raises would be effective Friday. I hadn't received anything stating I was getting one - I was ramping up to be major league PO'd!!.

When the Program Manager handed me the envelope, he said, "Sorry, I meant to give this to you last week."

Grumpy 'til the day I die.

congrats skek!

Everyone is getting more money all around!

At least I know that I will be getting a (fairly significant) raise every June for the next 4 years.

I rarely get an eval although I have to fill out one each year. I only get the standard 3% that everyone in the district gets. Sigh.

If you fill out two of them do you get a 6% raise?

Still single, can't imagine why.

Either that, or they will think they have two people doing the same job and decide to fire one!

Congrats on the raise/promotion!

No; Barney is our government lead . . . PM = company guy that manages contract personnel and budget for our program.

Thanks!

It's considered a state job, so the "raise" for me isn't going to be much... what they do is move me up into the next pay grade at a step that is making more money than I am making now. Which means if there's a step that makes $5 more a year, they'll give me that step. Woohoo raise. But it means each year I'll go up more per step than I was.

There's no processing on these evals. I fill out my part. Boss fills out his part. It goes to HR and then my file. Never discussed. Sigh.

Right there with you... state employee myself... We got a 3% raise this year, and they started charging us 1.5% of our salary for health insurance (instead of a flat dollar figure). Yippee 1.5% raise

Congratulations to all who have gotten raises, are going to get raises and are hoping to get raises. No raise here. *sniff*

I figure they'll just raise my self-employment tax to cover all those government raises.
