Will you ask for a raise in Q4?
The results are in.

The maximum number of respondents to our poll, 46 percent, however said that they deserve a raise, and would ask for it during the last quarter of the year.
A report published by the Markets Insights Division of Advantage Consultants in April this year said that salary increases for 2009 in the region are expected to come down to 6.2 percent instead of earlier expectations of 9.2 percent.
According to the GCC Salary Survey released by Bayt.com and YouGov Siraj in January this year, the average salary in the Middle East has risen by more than 15 percent in the last two years. The scenario is certainly different this year, and most companies are now waiting for the market situation to improve before promising their employees any salary hikes.
Perhaps the only people who do have some good news are a lucky 6 percent of our respondents, who said that they have already pocketed raises this year.
