Threat for a raise?
So I finally got management to give me performance review as early as coming week(previous thread others told me to ask for raise), since my probationary period is now over.
i run data analysis. So power bi reports/developer, modelling data. In addition, i got legacy software (where we pull our main data from) to work with SQL database and then tableau. It was difficult but I found a way (corporate wouldn't share know-how with regional base that I am part of. So I figured if corporate got it done, there must be a way for us too and I spent days testing to find solution).
My management has been impressed with data. Before they had no knowledge of anyone's productivity, sales - like one certain days we had people coming in to work to do nothing (literally nothing). The executive of course didn't know because he didn't have the data in front of him. So the executive now is involved and wants me to refine dashboards and add even more data to it. Then I will present to all the regional executives.
Now I work 5 days a week, i don't get paid overtime (management refused when i started new). But I continued to work because I enjoy what I am doing. So I work 7 days a week and staying longer after hours. This means I get paid an average of $10/hour once i spread my earnings over the hours worked.
So I don't know how to bring the issue of wage with management. It is certain they're going to save at least $50k (for just one department in one location only). I don't think it will be appropriate to say that I refuse to expand it to other locations unless I get paid more. So I think more along the line of "either pay me or the rollout will be very slow as I dedicate max of 8 hours a day."
In addition, the management is only allowing me to do all this. They refuse to let me get help from other departments. Like what the hell. I know it's $100/month license, but I have to dig through a lot of lines of codes to model our database. I don't mind working single-handedly, so I will definitely want to say that add more people to this project or pay more. While likely scenario is they give more support instead of raising wage, there is sensitive data I have access to which they may not want to share with everyone else.
Finally, if I leave the company to actually work as a data analyst elsewhere, this entire project is dead. They have no one in entire region who knows how to pull data. They could fire me and make me hand over all my work, but I doubt they can find someone else for sixteen/hour to dig through all my code to understand how I modeled things. So I have something major here, I just don't know how to present myself to ask for appropriate value for work I do, the knowledge and the man-hours I am putting in.
