My Yearly Pay Increase

As many of you know I work for a Fortune 100 company, and today they handed out our yearly evaluations for 2005. They try to do it around the end of the 1st quarter so they dont get behind. Fact of the matter is that the average pay increase for my group was between 0% and 6.25%. I got a 6% increase in my pay which I won't really notice, but hey its better than 0%. Since we are not allowed to discuss the increases with our group, for obvious reasons, I think overall our performance last year was stellar and I hope everyone (at least on my group) got what they deserved. 6%... lol.... im just keeping up with inflation, which right now sits at 3.99 for Jan 2006.

Wow, six percent is great. In nonprofit land, I usually get 3 percent. Once I got four percent.

The best way to get a better salary is to find a new job.
