Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

    Claims of superior processes without basic

    Sep 20, 2021 - Client Service Officer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Recognise the value of financial advice client support with remuneration at the higher end of the market.

    Cons

    Poorly documented processes in a highly regulated industry; no structure to change management in an environment of constantly evolving laws and massive industry upheaval; amateurish attempts to provide staff training and instruction. On top of that there's an expectation that it's acceptable for those on the bottom of the structure to work ridiculously long hours.
