Anyone else experience people getting promoted unjustly because they are social with their leadership outside of work, even though they aren’t ready or don’t deserve the position?

Half of the battle in this industry is building those relationships. Being a rock star is great, but you also need to be personable and have good social skills.

i’m 99.9999999% sure you’re simply failing to understand exactly what it means to “deserve” a promotion in finance. grunt work and analytical skills are important but totally fungible. relationship building is not. proceed accordingly.
