    Today I have been at my company for 30 days. They had put in my hire letter that they would do a 30 day review since I took a pay cut to work here. I haven't heard anything about the review and with the holidays coming up I can see it getting lost in the shuffle. I was going to email my boss but I feel a bit weird about it. Should I just suck it up and do it or wait a couple days to see if they remember?

    personally, i try to avoid having awkward conversations via email. is there a way you can bring this up in person without seeming too needy?

    If I were you I'd wait until after the holidays to bring it up - you will be more likely to get a favorable response then as there is usually a rush to get things done before Christmas, and your request will be just another thing to throw the pile. People are often in a good mood coming back from holidays too.

    i don't see the value in waiting to ask. it's been 30 days. unless the office is abnormally busy, just ask. the reason i don't suggest putting something in writing is 1) you may get an answer without a conversation and 2) writing makes things more permanent. for HR reasons, they may have to respond a certain way via email, but could maybe respond a different way in person.

    If the company is cheap, then it's definitely up to you to take the initiative. I would ask, but not expect an answer right away. Something like "Hey, I know the holidays are busy with people on vacation, can I setup a quick meeting for the first week of Janury to go over my 30 day review?". You're letting him know you haven't forgotten, and it gives you time to put together what you want in writing.

    Bonus if he was already on top of it and says "No need for a meeting, your $8 an hour raise has been submitted and you'll get it with the next paycheck. Thanks for reminding me, I had forgotten to tell you about it".

    $8 an hour raise, YES! The company is definitely not cheap. I will bring it up tomorrow after I finish payroll. Thanks for the advice everyone.

    I think this is the correct answer. They committed to a 30 day review; it's been 30 days; time for the review. If they're too busy, fine, as long as it's on their mind and scheduled. If they just forgot (which happens), then they will probably appreciate the reminder, assuming the reminder is cordial and professional.

    An employee should never be afraid to discuss reviews, or salary, or time off, or anything like that, as long as expectations are reasonable and demeanor pleasant. Talking about money with a professional attitude can only serve to enhance one's image.

    Wow, that's weird. Everyone fights over the potluck food here. People go in the break room on their breaks because they are afraid by their lunch time the food will be gone.

    We had our put luck today, as well. WAY too much food, especially sweets. I made turkey chili, and it was a hit.

    There's a big push to use our remaining employee recognition budget by year-end. Perfect timing to return the favor for all my employees who unexpectedly gave me holiday gifts.

    I'm screwing around at work. I found a phone number in my neighborhood that ends in -6666 and I kind of want it. It'd be cool if I found one that ended in -FUCK too.

    That's not really bonus money he's giving out though, its really a "Thanks for the gift, here's a rebate", he said so himself.

    That's not the holiday spirit!~

    I think one of my coworkers is still drunk from the New Year. Here's a couple emails she sent me because she's confused about our vacation policy....

    Happy New Year!!!

    I have few questions.

    #1
    Did you revise Employee Handbook of 2008 versions?

    #2
    For [employee], the work years in [company] as of January, 2013 are less than eight years.
    Aren't days of his vacation of year the 15th?
    Aren't days the 15th from his 2012? carry forward about the vacation of 2013(a maximum of the 30th)

    #3
    Cannot the person who doesn't have the vacation balance as of January 1 take the vacation in ending of May for ten days?
    The vacation of the year had been given up to now on January 1 and it existed.
    The vacation was able to be acquired previously in 20 days in February even if it waited until December and the vacation was not taken for 20 days.
    4/1/2012 was 8th anniversary of [company] for him.
    1/1/2013 is not 9th anniversary Yet.
    I get this kind explanation from Lea.
    Actuary, he will received 20days from 1/1/2014.
    But he has schedule to go back to Japan sometimes in 2013.
    I laughed over "actuary."

    She is Japanese. At least it was over email and not in person. I work in the same office with someone that constantly says, "Oh, rearry?" It's so hard not to smirk when she says that to me.

    Half my team thinks they are toast because HR just sent an Org Announcement showing that I’m picking up some areas and people to support those new areas, but they left off my existing employees (even though yesterday I gave them edits so they would be included).

    I just gave two weeks notice and was told no, like it was an option. He then asked me to let them have more than two weeks. I even agreed to it at first but then realized that I would then have to wait another month for insurance. Fuck that.
