My salary was increased by 5%! Yahoo!
Today I had my session with my one-up about my last fiscal year's overall performance. I received awesome feedback and I wasn't surprised when he said I received 5%. I mentioned repeatedly that I'd least get 3% but honestly I knew it would be at least 5%. I was just preparing myself for the worst. I would contest if it were only 3%!
Now our combined gross income is above the $130K mark. The challenge is to show something for it. We're consistently working on it!
