what to do dis?
continue looking for alternative employment.
At least for a while. See if it makes you change your view and it will look more impressive if you put your increased salary on your CV if you do still want to change in say 6 months time.
Got the opportunity to raise all my grievances and most of them will actually be addressed. So I took the money and stayed. One of my managers said if I still want to leave in six months (as in if things don't get better), he'll pay for my leaving drinks. I'm gonna hold him to it.
In the mean time, you should draw up pros and cons of going/staying.
make it rain
(and also look for alternative employment whilst making it rain)
every time I think I am close to breaking and actually make the decision to leave, I either get a payrise or some one-to-one results in them saying how great I am and some changes come in which makes life easier. They just seem to know, god knows how.
what do you do? very few people work because they love it so surely money is a big factor? unless the job is making you miserable.
i work in the public sector so can't even recall what a payrise is :/
Had to apply a lot of pressure to get a pay review, and I'd always apply it whenever I reached the point that I'd just had enough. Was always kind of hoping that they'd not give me anything so I could just quit. Of course I couldn't complain when I got the raise, and it definitely put me back in a happier place for a few months.
If not for the fact that another job came along and found me, I'd probably have stayed there until the raises stopped, which I'm pretty sure they would have done about a year ago.
I remember towards the end of my time there, the bloke who sat next to me asked me if I'd ever had a pay rise while working there, and I'll never forget the look of horror on his face when I said I'd had 3. He'd never even had 1, and he was probably better at the job than me. He'd just never made a fuss and they weren't afraid of him leaving so they never offered him one. Sometimes the the "want to leave" can be key in making them make an effort to keep you.
And a new job.
