My annual work review got finalised today. Basically they want to give me more work/less money/no promotion.
I appreciate time’s aren’t great at the moment for so many and I don’t for one second take for granted that I have a job. I am totaly grateful. However if I felt like my boss had said, noone’s getting promoted/pay rises/ taking on more work I could understand that but 3 people just in my department have been given promotions, including a girl who does the same role as me.
Obviously I’m going to fight my corner saying I deserve it more but I really do. She always arrives for work late, leaves early, always off “ill” and goes on 2 hour lunch breaks leaving me to do her work all the time. I’m sick of her getting away with it and me having to sholder the slack. The reason she got the promotion not me? She’s been there 6 weeks longer!? Can you believe it!
Blah blah, my waiting fever has now got a partner. Finding a new job. That should keep me occupied. In fact today my mind has been running wild with ways to plan and progress with my career rather than in a proposal. Typical that the only thing that can take my mind of a ring is my living.

Good for you to take a positive direction!
Unfortunately it seems like every work place has this dynamic where for some reason…. performance isn’t the top priority. 🙁
Good luck with your career and keep your chin up!

@WaitingweddingBE: I had almost the EXACT same thing happen to me in the fall! My boss agreed to give me a new title which meant more work, but no raise. Oh and then she also threw in the wonderful news that titles don’t actually mean anything to her. Add in the fact that the two other girls in my position were making at least 10k a year more than me (both with only an additional 3 months experience), and I was pissed.
I had been looking for a new job every now and again, but this was just the push I needed to light a fire under my butt-I went home that night and applied for every job in my field I could find-and I had a new job within two weeks! And I LOVE it. Best decision I ever made! Nothing can suck the life out of you like not enjoying your job.
Take the negativity and focus that energy instead on looking for something else where you feel appreciated, and where there’s room for you to grow. ….you’ll be surprised how quickly it comes:) GOOD LUCK!!!
