I was with a company when I left college for 10 years. The only pay rise I got was after my 3 months probationary period. I was made redundant after 10 years though and went to a different company in which pay rises were given on how you performed. Lucky I was really good at my job and within 5 years added over 3p/h, doesnt sound much but it was good for retail 😂

Its difficult with a small company. I do go by your dont ask you, dont get but just be prepared to for them to say no.

Of course people should get a pay rise every year and they shouldn't have to ask , unless a company makes a loss it must be doing quite well especially if it is still in business after ten years
If people do not get a pay rise and inflation just continues eventually you will be working for a worthless amount.
It annoys me when you see really successful people in the papers on their large private boats and are worth hundreds of millions of pounds but do not pay their staff more that the minimum wage

Similar here (also IT). My last job used to give decent rises and bonuses. Then for 3 years they stopped bonuses, and only did 1.5% or so - a lot less than inflation. I endured it for that time and then left to earn more elsewhere.

OP - that many years is totally unacceptable. That is a huge paycut in real terms, really. If you were on 25k ten years ago, that should be 32k now. If they will not give you one, then it's time to move on. And if you leave and they then turn around and offer more for you to stay (which has happened to me everytime I've left a job), do not say yes! It's because it suits them for you to stay and is easier and cheaper than finding a replacement.

I have learned over my working life that companies have ZERO loyalty to their staff, so in return I will no longer give them mine either.

Yup been public sector for 25 years and most of them with small 1% pay rise at most. My biggest jumps were promotion and moving to shift work/on call. None of my actual payrise resulted in more money due to increase pension/NI or tax.

I generally just expect 1% and because i love the variety of what I get to do I stick with it. I am not poorly paid and I believe what I get reflects reasonably my role now. Will never turn down a rise mind you!

I work in the public sector and for the last 6 or so years we've had a pay cut. They give us 4 days unpaid leave i.e. they take for days pay off us each year.

Pay rise ... now what is that again?

I know of a business who pay 3 in the winter
