Have been trying to get a promotion now for months but keep getting stalled by budget/timing and have now been looking outward for new opportunities. After a two week PTO, have been having a terrible week, mistake after mistake and can’t get out of my own head…

Hang in there, it happens. We’re all human. Focus on one thing at a time. I was in this position not too long ago and moved companies. Don’t be so hard on yourself and take a breath. Good things will come whether it’s here at this firm or another one.

I have to give feedback to a F Mid 30s, who didn’t get a promotion (ppl mgr). Passed for a second time. They are super smart, but don’t have self awareness. Tend to be very snappy, opinionated and negative, and scoffs at everything. The person we hired (M Mid 30s) has r been passed once before for different role, sees beyond themselves, the bigger picture, takes the total process into play, assess vs rush to judgement.

Do I lay it all out there direct, or find corporate words that pacify?

The only way I studied in college is by cramming. Sadly is so hard for me to get studying as it just seems like it’s so long of studying till you take the test and never ends. Have any of you guys passed FAR in a month of cramming? I’m also working but my clients are a little bit easier this time of year and have some PTO days at the end of next month. If you don’t mind sharing your studying techniques if you did pass in a month that would be awesome!

Been with company for 2.5 years in a SFA role, and they just let me hire an associate financial analyst reporting into me. My manager never mentioned anything in regards to a promotion, but when I asked, I was told that there will be an evaluation period before any promotion is given. Has anyone else had this before, where you are managing someone but they don’t give you a promotion? Sounds bizarre to me that they allow me to hire someone but then are hesitant to promote.
