I was basically thrown in the position of senior paralegal without the acknowledgment or pay, but with the responsibility. I have been in the company for over 16 months and at my review I got a $.45. That is not enough. I am the only reason we have over 60% of our clients (the only Spanish speaking person in the firm) and therefore I do a lot of work. I am salary and end up with a very poor hourly wage after I work over 50 hours each week ( I work on Saturdays, dont take my lunches, stay past 5 every single day, etc). Basically I need a raise or I will be moving on because I refuse to continue to make the company so much money and I don't get paid what I deserve.. On the other hand, I love this company, the flexibility they offer, the benefits, they are amazing. It is VERY family oriented to the point where they remind us at staff meetings the importance of taking time to attend our children' school activities and caring for our loved ones when sick. When it snows and it is not safe to get to work they tell us to not even attempt it and stay home. It is honestly a lovely firm and this is the FIRST place I can say that I LOVE working at. However, I am determined to get the money I deserve.. How should I go about this.. What should I say. FYI I do not want to give an ultimatum.
