My agency instituted a raise freeze ~1 day before my yearly review (3 months ago). I was an underpaid AAE but am now 30-40% below the other AEs. I was distraught to not get the raise I really need but I respected that it was "company-wide, no exceptions." I've recently heard some *did* quietly get raises. If I was making a livable wage, I would tough it out but it really hurts to hear people at higher salaries are getting what I was denied. I feel totally taken advantage of. What do I do?
