I have been poached by my manager about a promotion and am working on a review to share with him. I have continued to express my interest in working on an upcoming brand strategy work, my manager agreed verbally. I just found out that he actually gave the work to a new AE of my team. When I approached him, he didn't give much explanation but that my time will come. How should I navigate this?

I’ve been struggling at work, trying to get a promotion but it isn’t going to happen. I confided in my wife about this, telling her it was hard because I thought I deserved it and that I’d been in my current position for many years. She listened and offered advice, which I appreciated. Last night we got into an argument (not about work) and in the heat of the moment, she yelled at me that my stupidity is why I’m not getting a promotion. It cut me deep, I’m still hurt. How do I get over this?

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
