Salary Negotiation During a Promotion

The Office: Is a Change of Title Good Enough?

On last night's episode of The Office, we watched Pam Beesly expertly maneuver herself toward a promotion. She realized that she did not have the "sales gene" and saw the opportunity to grab the office administrator position when a window treatment salesman came around asking to speak to one. She tested the waters with Oscar, negotiating a salary that seemed to fit the position. However, the main focus was about the title change and gaining a steady salary that was not based on commission. In these harsh economic times, many companies are unable to afford the monetary increases that come with a promotion, so some of them are promoting without a salary raise. Would you feel valued if your company promoted you but did not give you a higher salary?
