|I have been working as a junior software engineer in France for the past year for a consulting company. I have been integrated with 2 different clients for 6 months each.|
I feel like I'm actually leading the projects I'm on and adding value.
However, since I depend on VISA sponsorship I have accepted a salary of 32K€ (before tax).
I have been working for a year and have ZERO savings, I can't afford vacation and I feel like I'm being exploited.
Should I ask for a raise? If yes, how?
PS: I work in the south of France where most IT workers are depending on VISAs so companies are very aware of the situation.
