My company recently completed two huge deals. I was directly involved in the first one, and I had a minor, but essential role in the second one. These deals are quite significant for the company. I am already paid above average, and if the company didn't give me a raise for the next five years I couldn't really complain. However, now I am getting a salary review and I was told that I am getting benefits (pension, private healthcare) instead of a raise. I wouldn't mind, but I also realise that I contributed to one of the biggest deals my company ever did... without getting a single penny of raise or bonus.
I can imagine that my manager wants to spend as little as possible. But give the context, would I be shooting my own foot if I asked for a raise and/or bonus?
