Three years ago I started as a helpdesk employee. (salary scale A)
At my company we currently have 4 helpdesk employees and 3 application managers. I received good/excellent reviews 3 years in a row now. When I started there were 4 application managers, 1 of them switched to another role and most of his tasks were transferred to me. I do these things while still doing all the tasks I signed up for three years ago.
I talked to my manager and made it clear there is not much for me to learn anymore at my current position so we agreed I would help out our BI department to see if is my cup of tea. At the same time we agreed I would join our development team.
We spoke about it after a few weeks and we agreed that in my 'new' function my workload would look like this:
1 day resolving tickets for support that my other co workers cant figure out. 2 days working at BI 2 days at development
My manager will sit with HR next week to discuss my new role. But between the lines I read that she wants me to keep working under my current title but then under salary scale B with my new responsibility's (BI and development) listed as my job descriptions responsibility's.
This does not feel right with me. The people I will work with at the BI/development department do have appropriate titles (lets say BI developer, Application developer). Also I feel like for at least 1,5 years now I have done most of the work an application manager usually does. They also have a salary at least in scale C.
I think i deserve a new function(title) given the situation. The salary scale is debatable but honestly i will only be doing my 'old' job 1 day a week, and even then only picking up the niche/difficult tickets that would otherwise escalate to an application manager or supplier.
Am i being unreasonable?
I think i would be more fair if i would simply get multiple/a split title. Imo my 'old' title does not represent my workload and tasks.
