Some Good News

As I mentioned in my New Year's post, my company instituted a 10% pay cut around the same time I moved into the apartment. Now, I'd like to point out that this 10% pay cut was across the board, from officers down to us. I say this in praise of my company; the officers were not exempt, neither were they—as I have heard of happening at other companies—getting raises while the rest of us suffered.

That said, an email went out yesterday with some good news: salaries are being reinstated, effective next pay period. This means that, the same week I get married, I will receive a paycheck at my full salary again! In addition, if things continue to go well, I hope to be receiving a raise in the next couple months (this would be very helpful).

Thank God for this!

Though, honestly, despite the loyalty one feels for the place that gave you your first job and whatever, polish your resume and send it out. It's great that everybody got the pay cut and that the pay cut is no longer in effect, but, unless you really think remuneration will continue to be competitive or some other factor will make up for it (besides dumb loyalty), don't feel bad about looking around.
