    4. Your manager probably has little influence over your salary.
    Decisions about salary increases for all employees at a company are often made at a high level of management. So, even if you follow all the tips above, your manager may have minimal control over your raise. Case in point: Mazin recently worked with a nonprofit organization whose board decided to give every employee the exact same raise.
    There's not a lot you can do in this situation, but if it leaves you feeling dissatisfied or taken for granted, it may be time to look for a new job.





    That one is false. They are probably the only ones who have much control over it. I have to go in and fight for my employees raises, so your manager is the one you want on your side.


    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775

    I manage four people, and at annual review time I'm given a fixed percentage for raises (say 10% for example) and I can decide how to distribute that percentage, but I have absolutely no control over what that total percentage is. The only exception is if we give someone a promotion in the middle of the year, then I can negotiate a raise to an extent.

    I'm gonna try number 5 this afternoon and get back to you.

    5. Threatening to quit can result in a big wage increase (but it's risky).

    Hope you do not work for Donald Trump, because I know what he will say. "Your Fired!"

    Re: 5 salary secrets your company won't tell you

    I have very little say over the wage of the 15 employee I supervise, but I'm sure that if I didn't fight for improved wages we would all be making minimum wage.

    I have to agree with brianhos. Managers don't normally set the wages, but they can lobby for you.

    Re: 5 salary secrets your company won't tell you

    I cant get an employee any more but I can kill the raise altogether. In any case, you want to get along with your manager!
