This statement is a sure-fire way to identify yourself as a disgruntled employee, someone who doesn’t feel valued or a flight risk.
“As a manager, you’re not going to hold this person in high regard if it’s all about the money,” said Jill Hand, managing consultant for hrQ, a professional services firm that often functions as an extension of client companies' HR departments. “Plus, you might wonder if they really are doing as much as they say they’re doing.”
This kind of comment can also make you sound arrogant since there are probably other employees at the same level of pay who are going above and beyond. Instead, view challenges as an opportunity to develop new skills and say something like, “I’d love to take that task on to learn and grow.”
