Each year in January my boss, which is also the company owner, calls each employee in and reviews how they've done. He will then give you a cost-of-living adjustment and a raise on top of that.
I've only been here about a year so I've only had one of these meetings with my boss. He said I obviously won't be getting a raise yet because I've only been here two months (at the time), but he still wanted to meet with me to see how I like the job so far. Not receiving a raise yet is completely understandable from my perspective so that's not an issue.
However my questions is, next year when he hands raises out, should I just accept what he gives me or would it be better to try to negotiate? From what I've seen and heard, it sounds like he just says "your new salary is $XX,XXX."
