Keeping my fingers crossed...

Talked to friend (and boss from former company) who's opinion I respect and she agreed that this was a good way to approach the fact that my promised 6 month raise never happened. So I sent this off to my new boss this morning (officially started reporting to him yesterday). So now keeping my fingers crossed. But I do believe this will be made right. Here's the message I sent him:

Boss,

My six month anniversary was 4/15/08 and OldBoss did give me my review on the 21st. However no mention was made of a salary increase. When I was hired by OldVP he had told me I would receive a nice bump in salary after 6 months of employment.

I assume with the change in reporting structure and title from Account Coordinator under OldBoss to Database Account Manager under you that this has just fallen through the cracks, so I wanted to bring it to your attention.

I’d be happy to stop by to discuss if you’d like.

Thanks,
Tricia

Seems like a logical, professional way to handle it. Good luck!

It worked! He just called me in - it was an oversight, they will make my raise retroactive to the 15th and I'm all good
