I was just informed today that myself and the other members of my team will be asked to cross train so everyone knows how to do everyone else’s job. Is it unreasonable to ask for a pay increase to reflect these changes in our responsibilities? Seems like the company wants free labor.

Cross train! It’s always good to expand your knowledge and skills. Just remember, you’re padding your resume! I’ve worked in banking industry my entire career and it does pay off. Because if other opportunities arise, you will have the experience to back it up.

If you complain too much, or learn too slow, you will be the one they cut when there are lay offs..... Good luck bruh!

Our company has done the exact same thing and no it does not merit a pay increase

Yikes! Is this a permanent part of the role or something temporary? I wouldn't ask outright for a pay raise but I would push on how the time commitment is supposed to fall in line with the other responsibilities you have (that you're paid for )

Depends on your dynamics, so don't be too quick to jump to conclusions. I like having some redundancies in my direct reports to a certain extent. It helps flex resources when necessary and prevents you from being SOL if a team member is suddenly out sick or gets hit by a bus. I wouldn't ask for a raise.

That being said, if you're at a large company, PE owned, or potentially getting sold, there could be a real risk that they're preparing for layoffs.

IMO, if the team has similar roles but cover different “tasks”, then this is good management. In my world we have different types of analysts. I would never ask a Controls analyst to cross train as a Product analyst. If you are being asked to master a separate and distinct discipline, then I would consider a direct conversation on career pathing and growth, which would naturally lead to a comp conversation. I have not found comp questions directly tied to to something a manager requested to be successful.

Isn't this a good thing ? Expanding your knowledge on the job ? Great for your CV too if required in the future, also at salary review time too.

I'm wondering if this is because they are letting go of our teams in Oregon and they are clearly understaffed. This already happened to my team when they let go a team in Hillsboro Oregon due to them trying to unionize

Cross training is standard procedure in most offices for business resilience.
