It's not malicious or anything, it's just how things are handled at my company. It's a small business (15-20 people). The CEO handles hiring and raises and the like.
I'm about a week away from my next performance review, and that will be given to me by my supervisor (let's call him Jim). Jim is the one who I've reported to all year and best understands how I've done, so it's almost a certainty that the CEO will talk to him when I ask for a raise. I should note that I'll be asking for more than the standard raise, thus the likelihood of Jim getting pulled into it.
Should I mention it in the review? Couching it as a "heads up, CEO might talk to you about my performance because I asked for a raise". If so, how much information should I divulge to him, either voluntarily or solicited?
