Everybody wants to get more money. But interest can be satisfied in multiple ways. To start the negotiation for salary hike, the value we add to the organization has to demonstrate with greater tangible way.

Does the company really need me? Compare with someone with similar expertise/experience/skill set that can take my position easily?
Would it take long time to train my roles/jobs if someone, he/she takes over me?
Would operation suffer significantly if i leave today?
Would it possible for my organization to hire someone easily with same skill/experience and same salary like me?

Will i be able to get the job outside with better pay and with better working condition?
