I played an outsized role in my company’s recent fundraising round (a big one – 9 figures, late series). I was recognized for my achievements and praised by the entire executive team.
Although we engaged an external firm for support (at a hefty expense), I did much of the core work. When we closed the round – which exceeded expectations – I didn’t receive a bonus, and my compensation was adjusted only minimally (~6 months later).
I’ve been told I’m a top performer and the company has given me more responsibility. Are they taking advantage of me?
