During September/October 2017 I got suddenly promoted to be the head of IT of a newly founded company. The previous head was the head of IT of the company were everyone was working.
Because they had so many problems working with that guy and that guy indeed said he wanted to give me more responsability, the CEO and founder of the new company "named" me to be head of the IT. Or at least it looked like that.
The point is, I was working so hard and got so much stress during the following months. But no compensation or anything. So I planned to sit with the CEO around January and ask him for a salary revision i.e. rise.
Right before I planned to ask him to meet and discuss it, we were announced the CEO was leaving the company to be replaced by another CEO.
So, I do strongly believe the previous CEO would have risen my salary. I know him since time ago and he is really cool:
- Wants to provide high salaries
- Provides compennsations
- Flexible working times
So, the new CEO: - Believes everyone (including me!) is earning too much and won't by any reason increase any salary - No compensations - No flexible working times any more (we are all pissed off!)
So, for me this has become a big deal. Before I had a given salary with a set of given working conditions. I usually had no stress and enjoyed my job. Now I am fully stress, work so much more, I have inflexible working hours and carry so much responsibility. However, my salary is the same.
I approached the new CEO on that topic but he already made his point. So what should I do? I am thinking about quitting the job
