based on experience, this is dictated by the culture of the company.. there are companies who promote based on performance.. some on seniority... but of course, it all depends on the politics involved..

i prefer not to get promoted to be honest just as long as i get yearly increases.. once you get promoted, the amount of s**t you deal with increases tremendously..



I like the idea of "event _horizon". Although promotion and salary increase are everyones work goal...I do always keep in mind that great power comes with great responsiblity.... ^_^

when is the best time to ask for a salary increase? taking into consideration that there is an annual increase. what are the best ways on how to ask for the increase



IF YOUR COMPANY DOES NOT HAVE A REGULAR PERFORMANCE EVALUATION WHICH WILL BE THE BASIS OF YOUR SALARY INCREASE, BETTER START DOCUMENTING YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND ITS CORRESPONDING IMPACT TO THE COMPANY. THEN SUBMIT IT PERSONALLY TO YOUR BOSS AND SAY " BOSS LATELY I REALIZED THAT I HAVE THAN SO MUCH FOR THE COMPANY AND EXPECT THAT I WILL CONTINUE DOING THIS...MAY I KNOW YOUR PLANS FOR ME SIR?

Kiss ass. Swallow your pride for that promotion or salary increase. Having too much pride will not benefit you in the workplace.

Befriend the knowledgeable people at work so that they would share their knowledge, skills, contacts, etc.

Be nice to everyone so that there will be minimal resistance as you aim for the top.

As much as possible, avoid having relationships with co-workers. Rumors and a vengeful co-worker, among others, could bring you down.

Impress your bosses and anticipate their needs. For instance, if you notice they need a report at a certain time each month, prepare it in advance.

Be a team player. In addition, if you offended someone at work, be the first to apologize. The last thing you need is an enemy.

Make yourself marketable. Be industrious. Get an advanced degree or certification. Let your bosses know that it will be a big loss if you're gone.

Take care of your name and reputation. Don't be known as that drunkard, gambling addict, or lazy bum at work. Be honest and fair to everyone.

I've followed these tips and have reaped the benefits. Do these and I'm certain you would go far.

Be a valuable member of the team - and continue to grow outside of work so that when your chance comes, you have more to bring to the table.

and the higher you get to the ladder, the more unassuming and humble you should be. (although, here at mtc, modesty my ass! this isn't work. this is just a diversion. :P )

From Forbes.com:


Nine Career Killers
John McKee


Don't Keep Your Skill Set Current
The business landscape is ever-changing and there is more demand for jobs than supply. Not staying on par with colleagues and those vying for your job will be a death knell.

Fail To Deliver Results
Winners in business know that it's all about accountability. Those who harbor a sense of entitlement for simply having put forth effort, irrespective of the results of those efforts, are guaranteed to fall by the wayside.

Confuse Efficiency With Effectiveness
Those who think that communicating via e-mail replaces the need to actually talk with people around them fail to recognize the importance of personally connecting with others in today’s highly automated and technological environment. Communicating in person whenever possible is imperative for success-seekers.

Believe You Are Irreplaceable
There is no room for "divas" in the workplace. As soon as you convince yourself that you and only you can do the job "right," your star will surely start to fall.

Know All The Answers
The old adage remains true: Knowledge is power. Professing to know it all can readily stagnate a career. Winners remain unceasingly interested in learning new ideas and approaches.

Surround Yourself With "Brown-Nosers"
Losers like having people tell them how smart they are, whether or not it's true, while successful managers and other professionals accept and encourage intelligence and creativity in others.

Forget To Give Credit To Others
Losers inappropriately take full credit for positive events despite the help or input received by others, while winners give credit where credit is due. Losers inevitably reap what they sow.

Fail To Self Promote
Bragging is one thing, but letting colleagues throughout your industry know of your success through case studies, promotion bulletins or other such tools is quite another. Losers often fail to recognize the importance of letting others know about their successes, or go about it in entirely the wrong way.

Lose Perspective
Intuitive business people recognize that, despite their best attempts to do everything right, sometimes they approach roadblocks and seek the advice and perspective of a respected friend, colleague or even a business coach. Those who fail to recognize their shortcomings are destined for the unemployment line.

1.Be friends with the following people

guards - they will let you in sometimes if you forgot your id
HR - minor offense will simply glide out
IT- free internet (wag lang video sites kasi hulit kagad yun,twitter pwede)
canteen - best food always. do ka mauubusan

2. know the ropes and ask things that you do not know. if you ask, you are stupid, if you do not ask, you stay stupid
learn things that may or may not be related to your present work. it may come useful in the future

3. know where to find something and who to ask it from. its not what you know, its who you know

4. you can somehow control your boss if you know a lot and sneaky enough. bosses decide based on options, just limit their options to your benefit

5. never spread stories that does not involve you. listen all you want, but dont spread around

6. never stick to your present skill set.

7. learn microsoft excel commands. reports that take 8 hours can be done in half the time if you know the commands (and macro, hahaha). combine commands to make awesome results (want to change Lastname,Firstname into Lastname Firstname?hahaha)

8. don't pick a fight with anyone or annoy anyone. mahirap pumasok sa company na may kagalit at iniiwasan.

9. wag maguwi ng trabaho. pag nag log out, tigil putukan na...
