Is it true that companies won't give you a raise without "provocation"?
Provocation: meaning asking for it.
If I was doing a great job going above and beyond, is it not a thing to give an employee a raise based on performance? Or do we have to go out and ask for one?
I'm new to the 'corporate environment' so I was just curious. Or would they give a raise?

Most companies have an annual review of each employee's performance and will provide appropriate compensation increases including a cost-of-living increase (if there's high inflation) and or a raise within the salary range for that job title. Some employers are open to being asked for raises at other times. Some are not.

Not true. Many companies give annual raises, to most employees.

I've never had to ask for a raise or promotion & have always got them based on merit.. however, if I didn't see a raise for awhile I would ask..

You can ask for a raise, if you've been there long enough and have the proof that you deserve a raise. Don't provoke or give ultimatums over a raise, that can get you fired. I haven't worked in corporate, but companies I've worked for usually give raises based on performance.
You would have to have a talk with your boss, or more experienced co workers, and see how raises work in your company.

You can ask for a raise as long as you have some proof as to why you believe you deserve one. That's the way I've done it in the past.
Other than a yearly cost of living or a promotional pay rise I've never been just given one.
