Go with your gut and what you want. It’s just business. You always have to take care of yourself and your family first. Take the emotion out of it and remind yourself why you work: For most people it’s money & benefits needed - as well as, for those lucky enough - the chance to experience and do things they find interesting. Sounds like the new gig is both.

A d*%ck move is being one & it does not sound like you are one at all, in fact it sounds like you are a pretty nice and thoughtful person for thinking about this, which any decent person would. Also amazing you have options which are always good!

Have a blast overseas!

Thanks so much for the great advice!!

I've never heard of an agency getting upset when people leave to go abroad. They get upset when you go work for their competition across the street. Do your best to keep the door open for yourself when you come back if you like it there.

Let them know the situation. What are you supposed to do reject the raise? It’s not like they fought for a promotion you asked for.

Do you just play the numbers game and contact as many VCs as possible until a smaller lesser-known VC is interested?

Thanks in advance!

TLDR: I got declined a job shift by my VP and I’m mad about it.

There’s an open position on my team at 2 levels up. My boss unpromptedly invited me to apply if I was interested, I said I was. He said he would talk to my VP. After a month of asking for updates, he said my VP could not be persuaded and VP thinks I’m doing a great job and doesn’t want me to shift. They’ll give me a promotion at mid years with the same responsibilities.

But that’s not what I wanted. Do I just suck it up?

How do you know if you’re asking for “too much” of a raise when there’s little salary transparency at your agency? Coming up on my one year and have gotten nothing but positive feedback from my manager (and also mentions of “when you negotiate for a raise at your one year…”). I know I’m underpaid industry-wise and for the work I’m doing, but am worried about asking for what could equate to a 20-30% raise if that’s beyond what even my manager makes. How do you know how much to ask for?
