I am having a problem at work. My direct supervisor also happens to be a friend of mine. Usually this is a good thing, but it does sometimes have some drawbacks. For instance, over the last 6 weeks I have sent several emails reminding her that it is time for my annual review (was due in February) and that i was promised a raise 6 months ago which i still haven't gotten. I copied her supervisor on a couple of the emails and she told me that it would get done right away. So far I'm, still waiting. I'm torn between wanting to be more aggressive and stand up for what I want and risking pissing off my friend/supervisor. It's not so much I mind if she's upset with me as i fear that it might not be in my best interest. She is a friend, but i know she can be somewhat vindictive at times. So I am worried that if I push too hard she will give me a negative review and deny my raise. So anyone have any great advice for how to handle this?? Thanks!
