Disappointed with the 2.42% raise in Austin market. I joined the company in June 2021. My manager resigned in October 2021, new manager got assigned this February 2022. There were no self evaluation sent last year. The numbers were already decided by my manager’s boss and the HR and my manager was just a communicator. When asked, got a response that business is affected due to shipment/container price hikes, chip shortage, Covid, war, inflation, etc.
