I got a nice 33% raise last year (my salary wasn't that high). Since then, I've taken up very important responsibilities for the company, and I am basically no longer a dev.
- I founded a branch office in a foreign country.
- I found the proper location for the office.
- I hired people.
- I coached them.
- I set up the workspaces.
- I am Scrum Master in one project, and I'm about to become one in a couple more.
- I run the payroll, calculate invoices, meet legal obligations and whatnot.
I'm basically running this place. All of that applies only to the branch office.
How can I justify a 25% raise? I don't want my boss to think I'm being unreasonable, in case that I am.
This is a bit unique from the other raise questions here because I received such a large raise last year as well.
