Wow, actual increases in compensation?? That sounds nice...

We have short pay scales, once you're at the top of one you have to get a formal promotion (I have no chance of my next one unless I win multiple large grants) so I have no scope for actual increases, and as our "cost of living" rise each year is below inflation my salary drifts gently downwards... and then I feel guilty for being frustrated by that because at least I have a job!!

We do get COLIs and merit pay...when we have a contract, anyway. (But no step increases.)
