I was flat out told that I wouldn't be getting a raise during our annual reviews as I just accepted a management and a nice raise that came along with it, as well as an out of cycle raise that I was given before that. I completely understand the reasoning and am good with it. My situation is backwards to yours but it works out the same.How would you guys handle this situation:
I had my annual review a couple weeks ago, got a pretty good pay rise, some new responsibilities gave to me. Since then, i've suddenly been propelled into a completely new role, which they had said to me several months ago was a possibility - but at the time of the annual review, no one had any idea if or when this was going to happen, so my pay rise was agreed in the context of my current job only and they said straight to my face that if and when my role changes, then thats a different thing entirely, and it'll be reviewed again. About a week after my annual review, the role change suddenly happens, and fast. Within about 5 days I was in this new role, so I had no time to discuss with anyone how this affected our prior agreements etc, and so far noone has approached me to say that yes they are aware my role has now changed and that what we agreed a couple weeks ago needs to be looked at again.
On the one hand, I understand reviewing someones salary just a couple weeks after it was already reviewed is a bit of a bitter pill to swallow from a managers perspective and it was pretty bad timing to have the role change confirmed just after my annual review. On the other hand, they did commit to it and I feel like I should raise it with them accordingly. But i've spoken to others and they've said I got a good raise a few weeks ago and to just suck it up :\. I kind of get the feeling if I do raise it they'll say I misheard them or that I misunderstood. But it's not like I misheard one word, there were whole multiple sentences around the situation.
