TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Depends on your company, your performance, your market, your company's
profit/income, and of course the human factor, which is non-scalable,
non-measurable and nonsensical.
Confront your boss and say you're miffed and give reason as to why you
deserve more. If you don't get it, perhaps it's time to start thinking about
what you really want out of a job. I'm not saying you should leave or even
threaten to... sometimes there is more to a job than money.
Anyhow, sorry to hear that you're unhappy with your raise. Better luck next
time, I guess.
