Pay day and salary increment
Alhamdulillah. It’s pay day already today when I’m almost broke due to the excessive money usage during my house moving (lorry rent, new house deposit, buying a few home appliances). Waiting for tonight when I will get back the deposit from the landlord of my old house.
Alhamdulillah also, when I check my bank account online today, the amount that I’m getting is more than usual. That means I get a salary increment this year. But come to think of it, it’s so little. I really expecting more 🙁
2005 being a very good year for me, with me accomplishing so many things. Even my super boss (boss of my boss), during her last visit to Malaysia, said that I should expect promotion and quite big salary adjustment this year. How this company judge people anyway? 4 years here, I realize that the back end people (people like my department) didn’t really get good acknowledgement of what we accomplish like what the front people get (those hensem/beautiful/good looking researchers, project managers, project directors). No doubt that those peoples bring clients into the company and that generates revenue. But they cannot underestimate the back end people like us that keeps the company running in the background.
It’s kinda heartache to see people that join the company later than me, initially as Assistant Researcher now being promoted to Project Manager, earning RM5k a month. And can you sit still to see someone, who joins the company the same time as you as researcher, now has become Project Director earning RM8k a month???? Tak Adil!!!!!
