I am a high performing individual contributor in a fast-growing company that succeeds or fails based, in no small part, on my results. I get perfect reviews and work well with my team. There appears to be no growth path. I’ve defined my path forward to my team and asked for the promotion. I appear to be at my ceiling. Other companies are calling, but so far, I have turned everyone away. This is not a credential issue. I’m grad degreed and have multiple certifications.

I would ask myself why you're staying, and what's important to you in the long run. Also, are there other areas in HR & TA that you want to grow in?


@TAS2 I actually have an opportunity with a really fast growth client in a fast growth industry. I just have a lot of myself invested where I am. A great recruiter is passionate about the uniqueness of their company story and their future and really knows the business and the people. That’s where I am. All the pieces are in place. I’m able to fire on all cylinders. Only the function structure is wrong. And I’m the best person to fix it. It’s called commitment, I guess. Displaced, perhaps.

1. Write your own growth path and present it to your manager with a timeline.
2. (Simultaneously) explore other opportunities.


I did #1 and am now regrettably considering #2.
I’m afraid you are correct.

Best way to transition from healthcare consulting to product?

I’m currently S2 and expect manager promotion in 2021. Got a Sr. Revenue offer at a tech firm (non-public) in the Bay Area -


Has anyone made the jump from in-house legal over to the business side? How did the transition go? Would you do over it again? I work in a niche area (workplace health and safety) and have gotten a promotion in place, but have maxed out my growth in the legal department if I want to stay in safety. Only way for me to be promoted and stay in safety is to jump to the business side but I’m hesitant to give up doing legal work.
