Is it rude to ask my boss for a raise?

0 votes
I think I deserve more salary because I work more compared to my teammates and have got higher profits for the company compared to them. But I am not sure whether it is ok to ask a raise or is it rude?

It is common to have this feeling while you have been performing well. It is not rude to ask your boss for a raise but it is not wise too because this might affect your trust and bond with your boss and management. If you really think you deserve a better salary and it is not worth working for a salary you are getting, you might want to look at other job opportunities. If you want to work in the same company and ask for a raise, make sure you do it in a professional way. Don't be emotional or irrational.

Your question is like asking "Is it wrong to get what I deserve?". No, it is not. But before asking it, make a proper self-analysis of yourself and decide if you actually deserve a higher salary. If you are not one of the top performers and if you ask for the salary they get, you will be a joke. So, it is not rude to ask for a raise if you actually deserve.

Whether asking a raise is rude or not depends on the way you are asking it. If you are asking it in a professional and nice way, then it is not rude and your boss might even consider it. But if you ask it with arrogance, then not only you will not get a raise but it will affect your job too. Inform your boss that you want to talk to him personally. Then in the one-to-one meet, tell him why you think you deserve a higher salary and request him to consider it. This way, it wont be rude.

Haha, that's not rude, that's asking for what you deserve. You can just subtly pitch the idea and wait for the reaction. If you get a raise well and good if you don't then accept it without creating a scene and work harder towards it.
