I employed your methods on getting a raise from “Start Late Finsih Rich”. The normal raise that people in my company get is about 2% to 2.5% because my boss tells us that if we want to make more money go and sell more, (bonus). I decided to look at the other people in my company and I decided that I was in the top 20%. I went to my boss in November and laid out all of my reasons for a 4.2% raise. Toward the end of the year I got my review and my raise and it was exactly what I asked for and I got the highest rating I had ever recieved before. Thank you very much for showing me the way to ask and recieve. I am also placing all of my raise into my 401K as well.
