Found out a SM derailed my promotion this year. I'm on my way out to a better job & SM just got fired for being toxic. They want me to stay because of that. Should I reconsider? #profitsfirst

If SM actually got fired for being toxic then they knew that for a while and if they knew that they would have promoted you. If they cared about retaining you with a toxic SM they would have promoted you and ignored whatever they did to derail you.

If GT knows all of that they should give you the promotion in order for you to stay

Yessir. You can email me at ByeBig4@ProtonMail.com for a referral. You get $200 just to interview and I'll split the $12,500 referral bonus if you start. PS you'll also get a $7,500 signing bonus for coming from big 4

No one else had your back. They apparently knew this SM was a problem and still no one did the right thing by standing up for you. I’d be pissed and lose all respect and trust in others involved with the process, so would get out.

Are they matching your salary? You called the new job better, what makes it better? Will you receive those “better” things by staying at GT?

Ask them to pay off your student loans. See how much they want you to stay then.

If the other job is better, I’d only consider staying at GT if your goal is partner

I left EY for a CPA firm that pays base salary >20% above big 4. We get overtime if we work over 45 hours a week, travel bonuses up to 25% of base salary if we travel, profit sharing since there aren't a million partners to take all of the profits, and you get 3% of the client fees if you're on a client longer than 3 months. Plus, audit is optional. You can work in M&A, CFO advisory, treasury, reporting, etc. I'd never have those experiences staying at EY. Oh, and our trainings are in Vegas, not Secaucus.

I think I’m close to an offer, but if so, I’m not 100% sure I want to accept it...however, I do need a job after being laid off for awhile. Do I take it or wait for something I’m more excited about?

I have my mid-year coming up this week and want to bring up my want for a promotion again. We briefly talked about it about 2 months ago and they were supportive, but how do I bring this up again and tell them I’d like it before end of year? I don’t think Covid will be an issue, we’re up 42% vs. PY and 32% vs. plan.
