D800E/Underexposed shots

Hi all, I'd appreciate feedback from the experts on the following issue. I mostly shoot RAW in M mode, AF-S with center focus and rely on the camera's auto on screen metering system to set exposure parameters (ISO, shutter speed, aperture). I find that most of my shots come out a bit underexposed, forcing me to boost exposure in Lightroom.Is this a camera defect or my fault? If so, what technique can you suggest to correct this? Answer might be to overexpose in camera, but by how much? Thanks
