One of the employers in my knowledge who was listed twice in a row in Top 50 Great Places to work in India had delayed salary hike for entire batch of fresh recruits after their completion 1 year of successful service.
Well, the employer confirmed all candidates in that batch as permanent but kept delaying on promise of salary hike immediately after completion of 12 months of probation period. It was delayed for 4 months.
For every month delayed, when asked; they advised to wait till end of month and said it was due to system issues. Was it the software system or the management system they were talking about!, no idea. But definitely it wasn't software system as there were lot of new joiners had joined within 4 months and their salaries were processed without any issues.
After long wait of 4 months, they finally rolled-out hike letter which was effective right from next day of completion of 12 months. But for candidates who resigned after confirmation but before others got hike, those were not given any hike.
This is the worst politics, most unethical and unprofessional employer in my case study.
From their past history of regular annual salary increments, it seems they follow same strategy by delaying everyone's salary at least by two months.
How should we deal with such employer?
