Mr. Sallan said when he hears
an unusual pay raise request, he
tries to question the employee to
see if there is a more legitimate
reason. Mr. Sallan may offer a
loan if the employee is having a
tough time financially.
The bosses said they are rarely

because it seems too forced and
it is not the topic of discussion.

Employees at Mr. Simons'
company undergo reviews in the
spring and fall, but money is dis-

however, includes a "good, bad

between Mr. Simons, his director
of personnel and the employee,
during which everyone has the
opportunity to offer praise, criti-
cism and suggestions.
A recent talk with an employ-
ee convinced Mr. Simon to sched-
ule a day-long computer training
session. ❑
