I started working at my company 6 months ago and although I wasn't enthusiastic about the salary, I was promised that I'll get a chance to revisit the matter and renegotiate my salary after the review period, which is 6 months.
Now that the review period is over, I sent the HR director, same person who mentioned the salary review prior, an email inquiring about the matter and they said they had "no plans" discussing a salary raise.
I believe that it's a worrying sign that my employer suddenly refused discussing my salary although they had no problem in the beginning. It's either the company culture or they don't value me as before.
I already started applying to other jobs since I don't want to be in a place that doesn't value me and isn't transparent about salary matters.
My question: Since it's generally not a good sign leaving a job after less than a year, is it an acceptable reason to other companies when I mention that I left because I wasn't granted a promised salary review?
