Bad raise? Maybe some perks might be possible
Want some ideas?
Flexible schedule. Maybe coming in early and leaving early. or work longer Mon-Thurs so you can have Friday off.
Telecommuting. Work from home 1-2 days a week. Skip the commute, catch up on exercise, etc.
Time off. Try to get extra vacation days.
How about a nicer office? Bigger, a window.
Better work equipment is also nice..maybe an ergonomic chair, bigger monitor.
Continuing ed classes are nice. This also shows you are industrious.
Maybe it's time for that dream assignment or a better title.
And last, you could ask for commuting reimbursement...Companies offer this.
Or you may have to ask first. You can ask anybody anything...remember that. However, I would not ask for all of these--be brave, but think first.
