I've only been at my company for seven months but we're a small startup and a lot has happened since I joined. Not only have I taken on a great deal of responsibility, I've also started managing other engineers. While I'm really enjoying my work and don't mind the long hours, I'm wondering if I should be asking for a raise.
Half the people I talk to say that I should wait until the one year mark (and use these responsibilities as part of a super strong argument), but the other half say I should address it immediately. I don't want to 'sell myself short' but I also don't want to come off as a selfish team player. And when it comes down to it, I'm perfectly happy with how much I'm making now. Have you been in this situation before?
