Q. I’m fed up with waiting six months for a great performance review, only to get a measly little raise. This has gone on for four years. What can I do to break this cycle?
A. Set your own pay and career goals that cover the next year or two. Then share those goals with your boss, and ask if there’s any realistic way you can work to achieve those objectives at your current job or within your group or organization. If not, and you really want to break the cycle, then you may need to look elsewhere to boost your pay.
