I was promoted from Associate to SA last Friday. Should I make it public on Linkedin or this something normal? My colleagues say it's nothing special as it is the normal path in consulting and everyone ends up being promoted if thy work 2-3 years as an Associate . Also, if you think I should do a public update, when should I do it? Right away or in a week or so?

Congrats. Do update your linkedin eventually, it’s important for visibility (clients, recruiters…). But don’t make a “I’m humbled to announce that…” post, that’s just cringe.

Change it. You earned it. 2-3 years of work as an associate, with a bit of a pandemic mixed in, not many people can do it. Congrats on your promotion!!

I would wait until title goes into full effect then celebrate however you want. Always celebrate your wins how makes you happy don't pull bc of negative bs.

Do change the title. Don’t make a cringe post on LI to accompany it.

I would not do a similar post, when I update my roles, I turn off the notification part. It’s my preference. But I won’t dictate what others should/not. We’ll have to disagree about it being universally acceptable because they’re probably more people celebrating that way than number who accept it as cringe. And to P1 point it’s literally harmless. We always assume we know what people are going through but we don’t. Let’s try to be kinder.

It’s changing your LinkedIn status, not throwing yourself a party! It’s still special since you’ve hit a milestone and will presumably be receiving higher compensation. Absolutely update it & be proud! Wouldn’t want an out of date title (might leave some thinking you didn’t get the promo, which DOES happen!)

Yeah change it like a few months after so you don’t look like a dork. It’s good to show that you are promotable. In fact you should be looking for another job right now to jump to the top of the band (30%) at another firm.

I just call a call to pick up my two tone sub, got on the list a year ago and I’m in a better position financially than I anticipated. Have been really wanting the gold Daytona with oysterflex. Does anyone know how hard it is to get it? Are there long lists? The sub was going to be temporary until I could save more but now I feel like it’s very unnecessary.

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.

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
