A. When your salary review gets postponed repeatedly, ask your boss for a timetable. For example, agree that your salary review will occur no later than two weeks after the October board meeting. Prod your boss to set a date and time now, just to enter it in your calendars. Send a short note to your boss confirming the discussion. Then drop it. Give your boss one more chance to come through.
Meanwhile, here are two tests to tell whether you should give your employer the benefit of the doubt, start making more noise or look for another job. Does your boss treat your salary review seriously and apologize for the delay? Fair-minded managers understand that salary reviews are important. And does your boss keep you updated on the situation and bring up the topic without you having to ask?
