Talking About A Raise

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about:

I sent the Dear John memo below a month ago and still haven’t heard back. My boss did acknowledge he received it, but has said nothing more. How long should I wait until I ask again or mention it? Did I say the right things in my letter? As a trusted employee I know that our sales are up over 35% over the last year.
