Half a year ago I started a new job. They gave me the salary I requested, even a bit more. I couldn't have been happier.
In the meantime I know that this salary is a salary for working extreme work hours. There are several more factors which make this job more difficult than I expected. But I've had some successes already.
I also have good reasons to suspect that other persons on my level earn more than me.
I haven't started a discussion on a salary increase so far since I didn't want to appear greedy.
With the performance review period coming up, however, I'm wondering what my strategy should be. The truth is, I probably won't stay longer than a year unless I get a solid salary raise. The toll on my private life is simply too high and I'm not able to take on extra projects because of my work time. Is it wiser to wait till I'm notified about my salary increase and then try to negotiate if I'm not happy? Should I start discussing it before?
