My annual review is coming up in about 5 weeks. This is the time of the year when I start to get nervous. I have always done exceptionally well on my review, but this year more than ever I am hoping for a positive one and a compensation to match.
In February, three jobs were eliminated at my company. When there are 6 people in the company, that's pretty dang significant. Two of the employees were hired back on part time, but my work load and responsibility has increased monumentally since then. I was originally told that I would have a review at the beginning of June that would include "compensation" for my new responsibilities by my boss, but it never happened. Since he told me that before he hired back the two employees part time, I decided to wait until my regular yearly review so that I could really solidify my new place.
Obviously the company isn't doing terribly well, but we've always pulled even. We just haven't been able to pay back much on our debts from when the owner bought the company five years ago.
I wish the next few weeks would go by faster. My anxiety level is just through the roof when I know it's coming up!
