Is the raise between consultant to manager worth it??

A1 how many years skipping is that? Impressive

So far ive seen the network thing is overblown tbh. As long as you're competent and likeable shouldn't have a problem getting staffed

how long till the promotion? next year? sure-stick around. 3yrs? go where you'll be happier (whether that's w the people or the subject matter is a call only you can make though)

My raise from C to M was 17%. Not SUPER worth it but I'm looking forward to the extra bonus. I stayed at the same account for my 2 years at consultant to get my promotion.

Stay on account. Sooner or later you stop doing client work anyway. Better to give it up now

One of our star coders was recently rejected from a promotion because they lacked the number of years of experience required. They've cut back their number of overtime hours dramatically and have started blogging about their skills, probably to attract recruiters. How do I convince them to keep their previous performance?

How much longer do you think the pandemic will continue? I know that no one knows but trying to see what people think. I have been holding off on a promotion cause of the pandemic so just want to plan a bit cause the promotion will lead to my workload increasing over 50% and salary only 5% . Just find working long hours in pandemic is extra draining but also feel it's time for next thing

I'm in a pickle about my salary- I had 1.5 years experience before starting my current role 2.5 years ago. The company had no marketing before me & I built everything from the ground up. My responsibilities have grown tremendously, including sales enablement, Rev Ops, customer success, product development & more. I had a conversation last August about my salary & was promised a raise & promotion, but it hasn't happened. Sales hasn't closed the revenue we need, but I've also never had a raise.
