Here's a situation. I have been selected to join as a manager at a big four entity. While the HR seems to be fine with the hike and the overall package, the senior/management in the team/project seems to be unhappy with the same.

A while ago, my firm gave me great performance review, said I was ready for promo, but didnt have the necessary months at level. Client took the chance, offered me a promo and pay raise. So I left.
