I am currently working with a contract that is one and a half years long (as a software engineer). When I interviewed for my position I was offered a 7-7-8 contract system with, if everything goes well, a contract of indefinite duration after that.
I am pretty content with the starting salary I was given but I was promised a raise with each new contract. So a raise after 7 months then after another 7 months and so on.
After the first contract of 7 months was over I had a conversation with my boss for the new contract. My boss told me everyone was very happy with my performance and wanted to give me a 1,5 year contract and give me that contract of indefinite duration after that to show me his gratitude. And I got a regular raise with that.
Now that my 1,5 year contract is almost over I am thinking that the boss actually didn't give me a raise in between because it wasn't a 7 months contract. Could this have been deliberate move?
Now with the next performance evaluation (and hopefully getting that permanent contract), is it normal that I ask for a "double" raise? Because essentially, I didn't get the one that was promised to me 7 months ago since I got a longer contract.
