So I received a small increase last year with my company, because I technically had missed the hire date cut-off for yearly increases. In that meeting, one of my two managers (who is also the head of HR), told me that the next year I should expect an increase around 8%. Fast forward to this year, I received a “exceeds expectations” review, but an increase of 3%, a far cry from the 8% that I was originally told to expect. My other manager, not the HR Director, gave me this year’s increase, and when I told her what my second manager said, she basically said she had no idea what I was talking about, and she would talk to him, but that I couldn’t expect to see the 8%. How would you proceed? I had no guarantee in writing, and from the rumblings around the office, most everyone received around 2-3% as well so I’m not alone, but to say I’m feeling a bit cheated is an understatement!
