I’m due for a review and possibly a raise. Any thoughts on asking for a raise during a pandemic?

I think your review is the time to discuss it, and if you’re due + can point to your added value meaning you deserve the raise they likely agree. That being said you may want to be ready to also discuss the raise being implemented at a point after the economy settles in. Don’t start with that but have your arguments/discussion points ready for it. It would show that you know your value but understand the reality of the economic situation. Waiting for a more appropriate time just starts a pattern of not asking for what you deserve because it isn’t the best time for it.

Following. My gut feeling is no, but I'm in a PG that has been super slowed by the pandemic. Pre-COVID, I was planning on asking for a substantial raise during midyear reviews based on my performance. Now, I'm just happy to still have a job.

I would make clear that you - would have - expected one (for the reasons you can explain) but that you are a team player and understand its bad timing and ask if it can be revisited when things turnaround (which may be prior to the next formal review period).

I think I will speak in terms of the extra responsibility that I’ve taken on. Maybe state my case and ask if they are able to consider increase rather than a flat out ask. I’m definitely not unsympathetic to the economy but I can’t let the opportunity pass without an acknowledgement of my value.

I have very mixed feelings after how they treated their staff this week!
