All - joined a FAANG corporation a month ago. Had several opportunities on the table and left significant money to choose current role because it was aligned with the space I want to grow in. No regrets, but just found out my hiring manager is leaving the team for an internal transfer. There was a new guy coming into our team who will now backfill my managers role potentially. Organic guy, and has stellar rep, but the reason my manager is leaving is because the team goal is unachievable. Advice?

Makes sense. Thanks for clarifying

This is pure manure

I'm assuming you mean organic as in the new manager was from within the org as well. What was the reason for the goal being unachievable? Was it due to constraints like time or is the end product itself not doable? I would be wary of a company that won't listen to management when they say something isn't doable and then push them out.

Thank you KPMG 1. Yes, limited character space so went with organic meaning he has risen from within the company. So basically this org had a restructuring in Q1 of this year and the senior VPs made goal targets which the new team was not present to negotiate on, and the old team didn’t care too much since they were being replaced. So the new manager got blindsided by the goals, and starting feeling as if she was being used as an escape goat by some of the intermediate leadership leadership levels below the senior VPs . The goals are metric numbers we need to take up or down by executing world wide initiatives on product/process/policy changes. Naturally improvements across the three platforms are varying in time and significant needle changes in metrics are just simply not achievable within the timeframe. These things happen at every company. I’m just wondering if I should plan an exit from this team after some time. There are sister teams I can easily transition too after a couple months.

“Escape goat” 😂. Sorry, don’t mean to be rude, just that image in my head made me lol Trying to be helpful: how much do you like the work on this team vs the other? I’d say if you really like the work, a tough challenge could bring out more conviction and growth. But if you think the situation is so toxic that it’s detrimental to your work and enjoyment of the work, then a transition is not a bad idea. Hope this helps

A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:
