I was promoted last year right after the pandemic started and waited until the fall to ask for a raise when things seemed to be consistently moving in a positive direction and our project was moving forward. I was given the run around and told to wait until the end of the year. End of the year came and I still don’t not receive my raise and had to wait several more months after a lot of back and forth. I know I was under paid to begin with, and they gave me a minimal raise which still leaves me under paid for my position. I am now a manager with several people under me (which I am having an issue garnering their respect because I work in a male dominated field and there is a lot of resentment from my peers regarding my promotion which I know I worked extremely hard for and have all of the necessary experience for but receive little to no back up from my superiors and am told to just deal with it). How do I handle going about both situations so that I’m not left in a position to fail but instead am compensated appropriately and earn the respect of my peers?
