Has the job market improved in Dubai? I recall it was tough for you to get the one you have now.

That's not your current company's fault. You took a role that was lower than your previous jobs. That is what you accepted. That doesn't mean they owe you a 50% pay raise. 60-65% is better than 0%. Unless the job market is really good over there, I wouldn't "threaten" your current employers.

I am sure I will be low balled like on Craigslist.
Sorry to hear bro.

But be careful with threats dude. It can backfire badly.

In a way it was communicated it wasn’t a threat lol. I said I will be actively looking as I can’t pay the bills. My boss and I are also friends of old so it was a different conversation. He knows I am committed to the company and what I asked as a raise for next 6 months I can deliver more than that value in a single day. I have already saved the company $10 million in first half of the year. Now I need to save it $30 million.

Anyways the worst part is that the guy I was supporting will now be let go as nobody wants him. I don’t know how to feel about that as I know he has a family etc. I never want people to be out or jobless because of me but this time it seems it is because of me because I did my job so well that they want to give me his position. It is the right thing to do for the company. Hence the conflict.

Either way, my manager said he will take care of the issues of both my role change and the salary ask. Let’s see what happens. About backfire, I owe to my manager to let him know that I will think about leaving as I am responsible for a core function and there is presently no backup. So if he can’t give me the peanuts I asked for he has to start recruiting for my role as I will sell everything and go back home.

Job market in UAE is still shite.

I feel for you homie and wish you the best of luck. I just joined the club today as well.

Saved the company over 70% this year compared to last and INCREASED efficiency and what do I get? “Sorry, can’t give you the 50th percentile for the position” when I’m massively underpaid for what I do. I got offered a job making 90k more but turned it down because this company said they’d do right and I had 2 people join the team because they wanted to work for and learn from me.

Have a meeting tomorrow to discuss because I’m f****** done working 14 hour days and getting paid what amounts to pennies in my field. I hate to dick over my team and leave but when you look out for others you end up getting boned. Time to care about #1 a bit more.

That **** never gets old. You bust your ass, turn down other offers for more $$. You stay because loyalty, and they **** you over. Then bam one day you're out of a job, and there's no offers.

I've been with the same company for almost 23 years now, and if I get a good offer, I may just take it. This joint sucks these days!

They treat developers like we're evil and must be dealt with. It's just pathetic.

Same here. I resigned a month ago, going to a new place.

Pay was good... but the CEO decided, that we have to do more work (already fooking busy). He doesn't want to appoint a solution arch, so that work will filter down. So even MORE work on the day to day work. He appoints his buddies which fck ups everything too.

I said fck that. Time to move. More money, less work (8 hours per day now). Companies don't care about people...

Bingo. The effort/reward ratio for being a high performer isn’t worth it. Why bust my @ss for a meager raise when I could coast on easy street doing just enough work to get the job done.

There is zero reward for loyalty anymore. I will be a merc the rest of my days. Highest bidder will win. No pay = no play.

Remember with whom you speak. Want to talk about pennies you can talk to me after being in service for 8 years as an operator I’ve earned my right to bitch

That being said, being any kind of mechanic/avionics tech in any branch is a thankless job. Operators get the glory but the people behind the pilots, PJs, TACs, etc. get no love.

I thought you already re-upped? Not stoked about being at the same rank for the next 6 years?

There’s no shame in being a 40 year old SrA when you retire

I’ve been in since May2017. It’ll be 3 years May2020.

I promoted normal time; 30months to make SrA, which is why I just promoted Monday Sept16. I went to basic May16 2017. My supervisor ****ed up my package for early promotion (below-the-zone) to E4. It was a shoe-in for me but can’t trust anyone to do anything in the Airforce.

I’ll be eligible to test for E5 in April 2020, and pretty much guarantee I’ll make it, which means I’d promote to E5 in early 2021.

I only served 4 years (radar repair, Fort Hood, TX, 1988-1992), but that was enough for me. I much prefer my cozy desk job.

If worse comes to worse you can always go back to your old job.

So I got my letter and bonus is like 2.5 K more than last time but my responsibility more than doubled this past 6 months. Also my performance was rated highest possible. And my boss couldn’t get the salary sorted in time so that means I won’t get paid the higher requested salary today.

Time to seriously start applying now. This gig is done. The company deserves what it will get.

That's every job homie, it won't be different anywhere else. Employers just don't want to pay a proper wage anymore not because they can't, its because they can. Pocket the money screw over everyone else.

**** since my huge fight with the owner things have steadily gotten worse. Take yesterday for instance. The new hire ( well not new hire anymore, he made it past probation and has been with us 4 months now ) refused to do a job. Straight up walked away from it and said he's not going to do it. The owner then told me to do it. We previously had an argument with his wife ( who is actually the owner of the company but no one is supposed to know that ) about people refusing to do their work and instead of reprimanding the staff he will just make Hapa do the job. And the new hire just walked around on his phone and then left at 1:00pm right after the owner took off for the day.

Like I do 90% more at the company now, yet I don't make 90% more money.

Problem is the economy is so **** right now that there are no jobs out there. I've been looking hard, harder then I drilled your mum last night. Best I can find is grocery store jobs or McDonalds....

Plenty of places with good paying jobs. Problem is I do not want to move. I could be making 2 to 3 times the money I make now but I would not be near the loved ones. Not sure the money is worth being totally alone with a VR headset and Rage for my only company.
