Octavio and Randy,

Tabish's review was rather uneventful, but 2 hours later he came in and gave 2-weeks notice that he is leaving. He talked about a "glass ceiling" he felt he had hit. We told him there is no such glass ceiling and he was passed over for the BT position which was "executive track."

My input is same as jays for most part. We need more qa. He needs to drive efficiency. We r not doing 4 times as much testing as we were a year ago. Software tools etc needs to be driven by him.

I would say 60 is competitive. We r happy with his performance. Is he in the top 20% of the company.

I just got off the phone with O. What input do you have for Tabish's review/salary? Generally, Jay and I are happy with what QA does, but they don't take as proactive approach as they could -- consider BT and development generally. I want to bring Tabish up from $52.5k/year to $60k/year (14.3% raise), but I'm expecting him to ask for more given his MBA-type degree, his experience at the company, identifying the BT interdiction from MediaSentry and offering to help with MiiVi (though we didn't want him/his team to at the time). What's my upper limit for a negotiation?
