Wow. Amazing effort...congrats! Did you do all this while at your current job? Curious was this your only offer or did you get others but the terms didn’t work out for you?

I’m looking to transition but not looking forward to the soul sucking grind of job hunting!

Thanks! Yes, all while working a 60h+ job. I got 3 more, but they either had similar wlb, similar comp, and/or bosses I was lukewarm on at best.

Congrats and happy for you. It’s relatively easy from an FO role, not undermining, just stating a fact. Anything else, you’ll need 3X as much luck! That said, why would you move if you are Sales/ trader?

Q2 assessment with my boss today. I’ve been in my current job 6 months. He told me I was doing a great job, he had no complaints. He likes my enthusiasm and seem to identify problems find solutions right away. I asked about compensation, as he found out when I took this job it was only about 3k more than what I was making (but still above the hiring range, which I’m grateful for). He said he’d speak with the HR VP. He said as a director I could possibly be bumped up another pay grade. Thoughts?
