You chew too loudly?  Seriously?

Either find another job or stick it out.  🙂  Usually you make more money by switching to a new company than getting a raise at your old one.

I would focus on putting yourself in a positive light.  Bring your accomplishments to a light with affirmative statements.  A recently read a study that said that professional women routinely downplay (or don’t mention) their own accomplishments and that directly results in men being promoted (or given raises) in their stead.

Change the image you portray.

It might help if you sit with your manager and set specific goals and timelines. For example, the “you work too slow”…is it a certain type of task that s/he is referring to? What is their expectation of how long that type of task should take?

When there is criticsm, handle it professionaly and maturely but don’t be afraid to ask second-level, deeper questions. Explain that you are trying to clarify how you can improve and you appreciate their feedback.

@missbumblebee: What does your chewing have to do with anything?  It seems as if small complaints are being made against you to furthur you reaching another step in the career ladder.  I’m sorry to hear.  Perhaps you could find something else?
