Submitted a Market Rate Adjustment over 7 months ago & HR has had it for over 4 months!!!!
I am beyond frustrated! I submitted a market rate adjustment request and title request back in Middle of 2019 and originally asked for a response to be given within a couple of weeks. Then weeks became months and every month I send a follow-up request for an update. Every time it is we were are working on it...blah blah blah.
I have been actively interviewing for almost two years due to the lies told to me in my interview and the lack of integrity in my existing organization. I have had offers but under what I presently make which I cannot afford to take. That being said, I have tried to make it work but I have an even larger workload than it was when I submitted the request. The last few updates have received no response and I will admit I am somewhat (rightfully so) irritated.
So I sent an email to our HR Director and my boss (who is on vacation I might add right now) stating to them how disheartening it is to see a request like this fall on deaf ears and I requested a answer be provided immediately as I need to see how Hankook will fit into my long-term career goals. My boss immediately calls saying it is a lot more complex than I know (my organization makes it complicated - it isn't complicated). I told him I appreciated the update but reiterated I still need an answer politely.
I didn't tell them I am looking (however, they should know that already since I believe everyone in this company is looking to get out). Lastly, I did not tell them either that I have two offers on the table that I will be making a decision on because I don't want them to counter - I want them to actually believe I deserve what I asked for if not more.
Am I asking too much or is my frustration valid? I know what is going to happen, if I accept another role, they will offer me what I initially request even though in my email to the HR Director, I told him the rate has gone up. I don't know why I care except for the matter of principle. It is for the fact that my division will be in shambles because I am doing the work of 5 people and have no one backing me up, so if I leave no one will be able to do anything. Everything is documented in a manual for our division which is about 4-5" thick (which I created because when I started I have nothing)...but I know no one will read it as they don't want to take the time to do things right.
Either way, if they counter, I will not be taking it. But I really want to do a presentation to the entire leadership staff to share "why" I am leaving for transparency purposes. Should I or should I not do this? I know our HR team will not share the full feedback I supply so I want everyone there to see it.
