Hi All,

2 months back I was promoted to Team Lead (TL) position and the review date is coming near when my performance will be discussed.

I hope that they'll also renew the employment contract (to reflect the new position). I want to make sure that they also adjust (read hike) the salary appropriate for a TL.

How do I approach this if my manager does not mention about it? Usually they don't hike salary at this time of the year, but I don't want to wait for another 6 months for that to happen. I feel that since I have been delivering more responsibilities and doing much more work, I should be paid accordingly and as per the designation, from now on.

What would be your approach to this?

Thanks,

AK

About how to ask-
Say that you are "interested in knowing the remuneration you will get in your new role". Even if you say it in plain simple words that you want to know how much you will get after the role change, I think it is ok. Everyone wants to know that. No one is working for charity in the company. And mostly you wont be the first one wanting to know this information from the same boss.

About what you want and feel is appropriate and should happen, does not really make much difference at this stage. Especially if it is a company policy not to give any hike at this level, your boss may not be able to do much about it.

This is what I feel though.

Regards,
Leena

Thanks Leena. It's obvious that a person is interested in knowing how the new role will affect his/her salary. No harm in asking about it, I guess!
