The director of my office sent email to all Thai staff yesterday evening, to inform us that there will be 0% raise in our salary this year...
He cited several reasons but the gist of it are the economic recession, budget cut, and negative inflation. The email ended with a promise to look into providing some alternative package instead. All of which make the salary raise less justifiable, not counting the morale boost issue. Although I still think that even 1% raise would boost the morale of the staff, even if just slightly.
So now it makes me wants that promotion even more, although not by much. It certainly lower my already low mood about my own work situation, reading the force moving to head office. This surely is a sucky situation.
There will be a big meeting next week at the head office between the Thai staff association and the upper management. Hopefully something good would come out of that.
I am still trying to maintain positive thoughts about the move...
a) My new weekend would be Fri-Sat, which I preferred than Sun-Mon.
b) The places to eat in that area has a lot more varieties, it is close to MBK.
It's not a lot but enough for me to concentrate on.
