    My wife wants me to ask my boss to double my salary but I am quite afraid to do so

    I am working in a software company. It has been already 5 years now and my wife wants me to ask my boss to double my salary. But I am afraid to ask my boss regarding the same as that may affect my reputation. What should be done in such a situation?

    Dear Friend,

    If you feel that you are not getting the salary that you deserve then you should definitely ask for the increment. It will not make any harm to your reputation. Everyone has the right to earn appropriate salary and there is absolutely no wrong in asking for the same.

    But you should not ask it because your wife is asking you to do the same. In fact, these things should not be asked by your wife. It appears as if you are at fault if your wife is asking you to demand for salary hike.

    You should discuss all the things with your wife but all professional life related discussions must be taken by you only. She can at most give her suggestion. If you let your wife control professional things then you may be in trouble.

    So, think about all the merits and demerits, list out them and then only take some decision. Yes again I would tell you that there is nothing wrong in demanding for something that you deserve.

    Thank you.

    Hello Friend,

    Weell, you can always ask your boss about the possible salary hike at any time. Generally, salary is hiked every year based on the employees performance, execution of work in time and seniors recommendations. I am quite surprized to find that you are still getting the old salary after working the software company for more than 5 years. You should talk to your boss and request him to take into consideration your issue and increase your pay package. This would be the best way to deal with such issue. But remember you should be polite and humble.

    Bye,

    Hello sir-
    I am fully agree with you that every wife, woman or any person of family, demands regularly to hike salary.
    But it does not depend on time that you have spent any company.
    it depends on your skills, quality of nature. Hardship.
    It also define that how responsible you are?
    Etc.
    So you should analyze yourself that are you fully eligible to do same.
    Always take decision with cool mind.
    I hope you will be understood
    Thanks
