So, six months ago, I changed jobs for one primary reason - to spend more time with my family. I negotiated a flex arrangement, and set about to work. The good news is, I've been doing good work. The great news is that I've done such a good job, I've been told that I will be promoted to team lead, probably today at the 4:00 meeting.
The bad news is, I'm back to doing a lot of work, and I'm getting the reduced salary for it. From 40 hours, I'm back into the 60 hour a week range.
I really want the team lead role - it's a hole in my resume that at this point in my life I should really fill. As such, I can't really decline the additional work and feel comfortable with that decision.
The question I have then is this: At what point should I say, "Okay, I'm doing a lot more work - I should be getting a lot more money?"
In some ways, I would like to have been asked if I want the promotion, for I would have asked them this question at that point. (You want me to promote me? Thanks! How much of a raise does that come with?) I also don't know when our regular reviews are.
What would be a good amount of time to wait to bring up the fact that my significantly increased responsibilities should be concomitantly increased?
