Surprise pay rise

There are many guides to survive the workplace. rmt-qa For me, there is only one rule: Either you bury your nose in work and get things down, rmt-news or you find some other ways to impress your boss.
news-rmt Impressing the others has never been my strong suit, besides I seem to have problems with the authority. I never know how to make proper approaches to those in power, so unconsciously I just avoid them as possible as I can. As a technical assistant, I am undertaking most of works offstage. Truthfully, it's very difficult to make myself even visible. My career would be doomed if I am not a hard working person. I am noted to be a willing horse in the office and so get most of the word to do. rmt777 I don’t mind much. Frankly, I am no good at being a lady of leisure anyway. Give me half a day doing nothing but surfing idly, my interests in online things would exhaust. The prolonged inactivity was going to eat at me, and soon I would start hunting for something to fill the empty. No matter how many assignments I have taken, in my entire life, I never pluck up enough courage to ask for a pay rise. What an easy target of being exploited I am! Fortunately, in the company I am working now, my hard work has been appreciated and somehow paid off. During six year service in my present company, I have worked for three bosses in a row: L, P and D. L always gave me “excellence" in my performance evaluation; the first thing P did is to ask HR a salary raise for me when he got promoted; and now it comes to D. D is… how to say it? D is D.
Yesterday, he asked for a talk in his office. At first I was nervous, even I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong, and so far in several occasions he expressed his satisfaction with my performance, but it always is a nerve-wracking to be called for a talk with your boss,r--m--t isn’t it?
After some polite chit, arcadiasaga-rmt he got to the point: “You understand that under such a situation it is impossible for a pay rise for you.” Of course I understand. Just a few days ago, L tried to negotiate her salary and benefit package with her boss, and unsurprisingly she just banged her head right to the wall. And even worse, her boss got furious. What a nerve! His tolerance for L’s inefficiency has come to the breaking point, and just at this moment, L came forward to ask for a pay rise. Frankly, I didn’t understand L at all. It’s obviously that our company has its own compensation policy. Without some glorious achievement---which basically impossible for a technical assistant, I mean, what kind of achievement we could possibly accomplish to attract enough attentions? Get our reports published?, anyway it is impossible to ask for a rise. But why D mentioned this to me? As far as I remembered, I never breathed a word about it to him. He just got promoted, and obviously there are many other things to occupy his mind. So why not save my breath? After K transferred to another department, I undertook half of her duties. Even my workload has added, I still don’t think I have enough chips to negotiate this issue. And now he suddenly brought it up, I felt puzzled, and the only response I could give is: c9-rmt “I know."
“You have done a great job, dragonball-rmt and I hinted several times before but you seemed not to get it. So let’s get it straight. You can’t get a pay rise, but from now on,rmt you could claim several hundred yuan taxi fee per month. rmt It’s not much, but if opportunity arises, I would try something else.” I could actually feel blood rush into my cheeks, and I felt a little dizzy. It's not because of the money, but all the troubles he went through. He hinted, several times? How? When? Vaguely I remembered he mentioned some other ways to make up for my added work, but I never got it seriously. I thought that he was just trying to be polite. Yes, the money is not much, but it means that my efforts have been appreciated and valued.ffxiv-rmt The meaning behind it is too much. rmt-cc Thank you, boss.
