Your respective places of employment do not give a shit about you. We have to remember this when they shill their shit like "work life balance" or "benefits" or anything that sounds even remotely rosy about working anywhere. It's work. It's supposed to be an inconvenience and its not supposed to be fun or easy.

I left my role as Director of Engineering a year ago, to take a position in technical sales. I took about a $50k hit on my pay per year but I’ve always wanted to try out sales and wanted that experience under my belt. The position I took was for a key account manager for one auto OEM. This OEM, I worked there for 19 years so I had a lot of contacts there. Long story short, this OEM basically told me that they won’t buy anything from me because they don’t like my product. What happens next?

I have a basic of 20 lpa currently, working as a band 30 - Sr Analyst at Amex. I feel I am significantly undercompensated. I was promoted this year in Feb and will be promoted to manager most likely next year. I wanted to understand from you guys if this is the right time for me to switch and get a good hike.
My total experience is close to 4 years. At Amex I have been for 2 years and 8 months.
Thanks
