What do you think about jobs that refuse to give you a raise and don’t allow you to have a side gig? Is it ok to do it behind their backs?

Horrible. At BOFA they won't give you a raise for the next year if you were hired after June of the current year. I get they want people to be focused on the job at hand but if they can't provide wages enough to sustain someone then it is odd

I know! I think it is kind of hypocritical. Companies have "Record sales, revenue, etc." they don't give you a raise and refuse to let you make some money elsewhere.

I think as long as the side gig isn\t in direct conflict...who even needs to disclose it? if it doesn't disrupt your working day....how would they even know?

Hm so this really depends - are you due for a raise or are you just not happy with your company's pay/raise schedule? Reading this almost makes me think you should look into a new company instead!

Being happy with the pay differs from being limited in your earning potential. Especially when you are salary, and you aren't allowed to get paid overtime. But it is true; I might start looking somewhere else.

Some companies will take that against you. They will find out somehow that it conflicts with your work and use it on your performance review or against you. What if you want two careers and open some opportunities on your resume? but are afraid of your company using it against you. I think it is unfair to the employees.

Feel like you have to put yourself first. If you see an opportunity to make money on the side, then take it. Have you had productive conversations about a raise though? Maybe in a quiet room with a steady conversation leveraging all that you do, it could make sense.

My productivity and annual reviews are always excellent. Even like that, they have been giving me an average 3% raise which makes no sense to me. I am going to start thinking about myself first from now on.

Is the fact that they prevent you from having a side hustle written somewhere? Because I doubt they could stop you from working at a restaurant or bartending if you had the bandwidth for it. Working for a competitor? Sure...but anything outside of that realm should be fine.

The only stipulation is that I should inform them about any activity outside of work. I don't think it is their business tbh.

I think it's the ultimate hypocrisy. I have a side hustle : )

I think that is what I'm going to do from now on! Good to know that I'm not alone!

My contract says that I need to ask for approval from my manager, and it is like I'm just at the mercy of what they decide. Plus, I don't think I should report what I do outside of work to my manager.

I don't understand why they won't allow you to have additional jobs if they won't even consider giving you proper compensation for your work. Better yet, just find a new company altogether.

I honsetly don't see a problem with having a different job on the side as long as there is no conflict. I think it would be best if you could review your contract just to make sure they have nothing against you when it comes down to it. Anyway, we have bills to pay and if they can't give us a raise then we'll obviously find some other way to earn.

You said they don’t allow it in the original post, but then say later you don’t think you should have to disclose it. …So you don’t actually know yet whether they will or won’t allow it.

If it is legal and there is no ethical conflict, just disclose it and stop being a baby.

Hi everybody just want to share something.
I was the 2021 best ADR of all CEU in my company, got a promotion as account executive and in the first 7 month I’ve been between the 3 best sales of the team (12 people). Got back from 2 weeks of holidays and a month of sick leave I’m a bit demotivated by the culture of always been closing, always pushing etc.. I feel like I’m a bit tired. Probably I need a new experience or I don’t like the job anymore.. Anyone been in this situation? Any advice?

My hospital told us we were getting a 25% hourly increase but only gave us 8% but gave the whole amount to select departments because of their retention issues. Now it’s been 8 months and we still haven’t gotten it. I’ve spoken to our director and our director of nursing. We are being told they have no idea when we will get our raise. What can I do about it? Our HR is incompetent and could careless about any of us. I want to go to corporate about it.
Any advice?
