Hi fishes, I was tapped for an internal transfer to the research division of our company. I was lucky to be made a manager in my current workstream w/ only 2 years of experience (typically takes 4-10). The new dept originally offered me an managerial role based on that, but after speaking with higher ups, said they can’t give me a managerial role because of parity issues with other members of the team. The new comp offered with the analyst grade is only peanuts above my current pay. Advice?

I’d advise asking open ended questions to shed light on the fact that parity with others based length of experience shouldn’t be driving this decision.

“What are the competencies managers are required to have in the research division that differ from those required in my previous managerial role?”

“What other examples can you share that demonstrate parity with peers is a key factor in decisions around promotions across our company?”

“I’d love to understand areas where my past performance as a manager has indicated a lack of readiness for succeeding as a manager in the research division?”

While it may be tempting, resist the urge to surface the what I would guess are many examples contradicting the notion that years of experience must determine level of responsibility in your org - the right questions will force them to see this truth on their own.

Hi everyone! Looking for feedback / suggestions.

Any ideas on how I can gauge understanding w/o them just writing the answers down? I’m looking for a balance of open discussion & accountability.
