I’m finally getting promoted at work, yay! Its a move I’ve been ready to make for a while so I’m super excited.
They are offering me a decent raise — 10%, but I’m a little worried. In the past when I’ve really stepped up and been helping out a lot, which I’d have to do more of with this position — I’d work close to 70 or 80 hours a week. So then my raise doesn’t seem like much since I’m salaried.
I don’t want to seem like a whiner or that I really don’t want the position — I just want to be compensated for my time… so any negotiating tips? do i just take the raise and ask to be slotted for a bonus iinstead?
