Hi all, I work 52-55 hours a week (soon to be more). I’ve been at my company 4 months and am now the only member in all of operations as of two weeks ago (barely trained). I make 70k+15-20% bonus in Manhattan (which seems low). Is it reasonable to ask for a raise considering I will be the only member until at least end of June as per my boss? Or would It be reasonable to interview elsewhere and take advantage of the employees market that we are in? Any advice helps. Thank you.
