I was asked to take a management job as our current manger left. I tentatively accepted the position but have not been offered any compensation only expectation of it in the form of percent increase over time. I have taken on a lot more responsibility and feel I should be compensated better initially for doing so.
It is only a good opportunity for a better job title but I don't necessarily need this job. I think the company is in a hard place and I am the best option for a quick smooth fix so I think that's good, but the responsibility level I have and am taking on is much greater and I think I need more compensation in money to match not only my new position but my current credentials.
My office is separate from where my boss and CEO are located so meeting to talk requires special trips. I have considered emailing but am afraid it will look cowardly or worst yet will just be ignored. I like email because I can argue my point clearly and write it all down organized. I am not good at that in person.
So far I am being severely low balled in the pay and don't know the best way to proceed in any case. Should I express my concerns via email? In the event something better is not negotiated or worse no response, how should I handle that without cutting myself short or burning bridges?
