Does Your Boss Know How Hard You Work?

My sister is one of those amazing got-it-all-together girls. She's smart, she's successful, she's always on top of her game at work, and she also happens to be a ton of fun and pretty as can be. She works for a small business and has been given great opportunities, but to an outsider and her support system, it sounds like her boss doesn't recognize how hard she works. Having been in a similar situation at past jobs, my advice to her is to prove it, prove it again, and speak up. How about you? Does your boss appreciate what you do?

My boss calls me and my co-worker (we're a team) her "models of service." She's not here onsite but she gets rave reviews from the client we work for.

I'm so glad that I work for such a great place. My church! I'm definitely appreciated. =)

Yes. He knows I'm one of the best employees in my department.

Yes, she does, mostly because she used to DO my job. She's very cool about understanding the workload we have in the lab.

I believe that my boss knows how much I do here but he also thinks that I'm at the top of my wage bracket (he told me this). I find that extremely annoying because it's not like I'm making a 6-figure salary and I do work my ass off here.
