I have been working at my company for about a year. During the performance review last year, my manager would like to me to take a lead on multiple high profile projects to build my track records. Starting from Jan, I have successfully delivered 3 most important products on time and received positive feedback from the customers.
Most people (everyone except me) with the same job grade only take a lead on one product while I am leading 4. From the actual work, I have been doing the job of the next job grade and I plan to discuss with my manager about a promotion and pay raise.
I already asked him to have a meeting to discuss this next week. I have everything I needed but there are one thing I am not sure which is whether I should discuss pay raise in this meeting.
I personally think it is better to make my expectation clear from the start and discuss a promotion and pay raise in this meeting. However, a few websites suggested that I should discuss the promotion first. Once I get promoted then I can discuss the number.
What are the pros and cons of each option? How should I plan the discuss for a pay raise?
