about a year ago, I had been mislead about an opportunity to combine my role with another which would have been a promotion- the company I work for does not give raises or promotions unless you move to another department.
They brought in someone else to do the piece that was to be combined. He was then assigned something else all together. I went about my business. The original woman who was leading the piece was offered a promotion but has been stuck doing the old job and her new one for a year. They are completely unrelated to each other. I had helped her for a few months, but she buried me and my own boss had enough so we agreed I’d pull back my support. Now here we are a year later. Last week my boss came to me and said that they want me to take a “couple pieces” of that role. I thought about it. I don’t want to. The pieces are going to bury me without having control over the process too. I want to propose what I think is a better long term solution, which includes phasing her out by the end of Q1 so she can focus on her actual role and it comes to me completely. My role and her piece are dependencies on each other so it does make sense to combine them. My boss says it is a fair thing to propose. However, I want to address comp. there was not going to be any change. I don’t think this is fair, and would like to ask for an adjustment.
