Currently working at the consultancy arm of a digital marketing firm. <1 YOE, first role out of uni, paid £50k pa (experienced level role, manager liked me I guess) but really keen on joining a strat house (s&, eyp etc) with better rep, exit opps and MBA sponsorship. Aware the grass is always greener and I have a pretty cushy role (good culture, ok wlb, but repetitive work) as of now so thoughts on whether I should chase promotion here then exit or jump this autumn for a grad/analyst role.
Creatives, what are your job KPIs at work? Like during your evaluation what helps you build a case to justify asking for a promotion, salary raise or bonus? It seems to be that when it comes to account department it’s pretty straightforward to measure sales.
Some are gonna hate me for this but at what point did you realize that maybe I don’t want to be a partner and maybe this is just gonna take too much sacrificing for me to make it. In public accounting there’s a lot about work life balance this and that but I’ve never seen a partner not work all day. I’m not in public accounting anymore just curious on if any partners here ever thought to themselves that maybe being senior manager long term and making 150-200k wouldn’t have been so bad.
