Here is a situation:

I was a senior executive in the an organization that I left few months back on personal grounds. My appraisal was pending in the month I left; but since I was in my notice period it did not take place. After that I did not join any where. Now, my ex-manager asked me if I can rejoin them. In my absence, the appraisal system has changes by which my next appraisal can happen only after 6 months. So, can I ask for a salary higher than my previous one? Is it right? Or should I join with the same salary and wait for the appraisal?

Some body kindly guide me!! Its very very urgent!!

You should join the company. As regards the salary, do not negotiate.What is important is the job satisfaction and the recognition.Money will automatically be there.

Since you had left almost at the end of the appraisal period you are entitled to an appraisal for that period and a consequent salary revision. You should make it a point. Otherwise, you will always harbour a feeling of deprivation / exploitation. This feeling will not allow you to give your best. And you can succeed only by giving your best.

 In my opinion, you should discuss with your potential employer giving the facts that had you been there for a month more you would have received the incremented salary.

Try to analyse one thing, if your ex-collegues who were almost at par with you in salaries and are continuing the job in the same organisation, with an increased salary, and your re-joining salary is lesser than them, then it may happen that as a human being, at some point you may repent in future. So keep this thing in mind, if you are really a needy person to get the job again, then you should accept the salary they offer and keep your emotions aside and abide by that. Otherwise, you should have a discussion with your potential employer although not very high but at least the salary you would work at needs to be about at par with your earlier colleague who were at similar salary as yours in your previous innings.

Dear subramani,

All the dear HR colleagues have given excellent insight; in my openion you should meet your senior and speak openly to him about your expactations. I suggest you that you should join only if you get suitably awarded.
