Negotiate base based on other members leaving the team
I joined my team 2 years ago as a java dev and have done reasonably well till now. Most of the senior guys in my team have moved on and at the end of next month it will be just me and a lead left. The lead basically forwards emails like, "could you look into it" and adds no value. Can I pull my manager in and ask him to reconsider my compensation before the mid year evaluations by citing the dependency on me?
