why should you wait to do the job well for 6 months, when presumably you've already been doing well in your current role for a period of time

Honestly they probably won't promote you. I would do it then schedule a chat with my boss the first and 3rd month. First month so then for expectations, and goals. Third month show that you crushed those goals and ask about a promotion.

Are you just doing it temporarily until they hire someone else? If so, don't even bother bringing it up because it'll never happen. Also, it's not really an increase in responsibility since it's a position below you. It's extra work, sure, but it's realistically work that should take you half the time it took your subordinate.

Main reason I was leaving current role was due to boredom and wanting a change. Recent restructuring at current place has opened opp’s and they countered with a promotion and 30% bump with all new responsibilities/path. Thoughts?

I feel totally blindsided by the interview I just had. I talked informally with Partner 1 before the interview and was told the position would be in one of the firm’s satellite offices.

I have no plans to move and really hope this wasn’t all a huge waste of time.
