Can I ask my boss why my teammate got a higher salary and I didn't?

0 votes
Me and one of my teammates are pretty close, we joined the company at the same time and have been working together ever since. A few days ago, while we were talking, I got to know that he got a higher raise than I did. This has kept me bugging because we've been performing the same. Should I ask my boss about why he got a higher raise than me?

The rise in salary depends on different metrics and your boss decides these metrics. You might have considered few metrics and missed out a few that your boss has considered. I wouldn't suggest you ask your boss why your teammate got a higher salary and you didn't because there's a 96% chance that he won't answer to that and nevertheless it'll spoil your relation with your manager. Instead, you can tell him that you deserve a higher salary or ask him what you can do to get a higher salary without mentioning about your teammates salary.
