Well, in my opinion, you have been working really hard and very loyal to your company. Anyway, there are a few questions that i would like you to ask yourself: 1. Do you like working in the company regardless of the compensation/pay?? 2. Do you think you will have better future to stay in the company in case you got a raise? (meaning to say: does your company potential and prospective to your future?) 3. Do you think that you are working very good and being productive in the company? 4. Do you think that you can apply for another job in the same field with a better salary? those are actually not questions. they are just thoughts that you should consider. Everybody feels that they are not well compensated for their job. Everybody feels that their job sucks. But that's the way it is. It's work. It's not leisure time. (just my opinion, no hard feelings..^^)

10 yrs is a long time. In today's world it would be considered a plus point - stability. If you apply for another job, you will definitely get a higher pay and you should apply for a higher post in your current line of heirachy. When you work hard and do not get compensated you have every right to feel bad. So go out there and look for new options, bag it and only then put in your resignation. All the best!

hi sparklingpink a word of caution. get another job lined up before you might quit as the economy in so many places is really bad. here in the US we have many many people out of work and few jobs for them, so do not be too hasty to leave a job.look for something better if you must then hook that job ,give two weeks notice and then move to a better job.
