I've lived away from my family for almost 10 years now and I want to move close to them when my current lease ends in a few months. Right now I am working as a software engineer and I think my salary is a little low compared to the research I've done for the average salary but I don't mind working at this company. I've been trying to find a new job near where my family lives but I haven't found anything yet.
Today we received our yearly raises and I am not exactly happy with it. I believe I have a good relationship with my company and I am debating going to talk to my boss this week and laying it all on the table; specifically telling them about my impending move, asking for a raise, and the possibility of full time working remotely. We are pretty short staffed and I've been here for 4+ years and have lots of expertise on our product suite so I think I have decent leverage. Wanted to hear some thoughts about this approach.
