Usually you’re going to have at least 3-4 years total work experience before moving up past AE, but it’s more about confidence and poise than time in the role.

agree with AD1 - it depends if you’ve held the AC + AAE positions. If yes, you can hit each one for a year and move on to Sr. AE after a year. this obviously depends on whether you’re good at your job or not. on the flip, I’ve seen people hold each one of these roles for 2+ years… might depend on your personality type, too.

AD1 and R/GA1- thank you for the input! That’s super helpful. Any insights you’re willing to share on key skills (or other) you would be looking for in an AE looking to move forward in his/her position?

Here are some tips; 1. Participate on client calls on smaller projects or whatever project has been assigned to you. Are you able to lead certain tasks coming out of these sessions, NB take notes and action points 2. Make sure your project/client status is up to date without being asked 3. Communicate clearly with client on timelines or possible delays Learn to manage expectations 4. Communicate clearly with the team 5. Make an effort to understand briefs so you can take on briefings with team as well as answer possible questions 6. Be proactive don't wait to be asked 7. Setup alerts for your client on Google so that you are up to speed with related news and competitors 8. Join communities like this one (check ;)) and other industry related 9. Very importantly get feedback from your team mates and account lead. 10. Have clear key performance indicators from your lead so you can focus on specific areas and get feedback 11. Tell your client lead your ambitions, they love to hear about how passionate you are and will help you reach your goals, it also shows initiative 😀

Is a 5k raise reasonable after meeting my hours for 2020? This is my first raise in 18 months I work at a big civ defense firm. I’m just so upset bc my male colleague got the same raise after only 8 months at the firm and he started at a higher salary than I did. (Exact same class and experience) I think I’m leaving but I don’t know if I’m over reacting.

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?

Anyone happy with where they're at and don't want to climb the ladder? I'm a C-level and make just about 6 figures annually.

I cringe everytime I have to list out "professional goals" or promotional timelines to aim for. I don't want the promo, just give me my annual raise and let me cruise and enjoy life. Any firms that embraces that mentality?

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?

I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔
