My sister has been working for this pharmaceutical company in India for over a year. While she joined last year, they promised her a raise at the six months mark but they didn't keep the promise. She talked to them about it twice and they keep asking her to wait. Now it's Diwali which is a huge festival in India, and her coworker who has been in the company for two years received twice the amount as a bonus. What is the best way to talk about this with the HR? Please don't suggest to leave the job and find something else, we all know it's super hard to find a new job. Thanks!

  • This strikes me as probably too broad. Best in what way? It probably depends a lot on the company, the specific boss, and the specific HR personnel involved. – tripleee Nov 7 '18 at 5:45

    "Please don't suggest to leave the job and find something else" - but that's probably the best option, considering she's already tried to talk to them about it twice. – Dukeling Nov 7 '18 at 6:57
  • @Dukeling so we look at other options, they do exist – Kilisi Nov 7 '18 at 6:58
  • Who promised the raise and in what manner? Is it part of the contract? Like an end of probation period review? – Kilisi Nov 7 '18 at 7:00

    She has talked about the issue with the management. It looks like they have already gave her the answer. You just don’t like the consequences of that. Every manager knows that refusing a raise implies that she might be gone soon. This looks like a duplicate. – Mateusz Stefek Nov 7 '18 at 8:36

As the Same thing happening with me. But I am waiting for something better and after 8 months I got a great promotion from my company as I know it's not always happening to everybody.

My suggestion is to talk with Boss directly, but before talking, you must do something attractive.

Hope you understand.
