How long do you think you should expect to be an account supervisor before being promoted to an associate director role? For context, this person has experience on an extremely demanding account and only gets fantastic feedback from his manager.

Took me a year in a similar situation

Have promoted someone between these roles in a year. Going to again in January. If someone is performing so well and rises to any challenge, requiring a certain number of experiences doesn’t make sense.

ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.

Currently interviewing for a designer role at Tesla - wanted some advice. The hiring manager has seemed uninterested and always dropped off interviews early and without answering any of my questions. He also mentioned that he's lost 4 designers from the team recently (red flag!). I think it'd be a cool role, but it sounds like I'd be the only designer and there's not a ton of support, BUT if I do well - lots of room for growth and promotion. Plus internal transfers after a year also an option?

Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!

Looking for advice! I work in tax law - I did ~3 years at a small firm after law school, got my LLM while working full time, then transitioned to a position in-house where I’ve been ~1 year. I dislike the company’s lack of transparency, it’s internal management structure, and the politics in the tax law department in particular. On top of that, I’m already feeling burnt out (likely due to the work volume and multiple forced resignations in my dept in the past couple months).CONTINUED IN COMMENTS
