I’m 3rd year senior at a regional firm, going all in to earn a promotion to manager next summer (July 2020), but I’m trying to determine what I should do if I don’t earn the promotion (cont.)

My career advisor says I have a decent chance at getting the promotion, but I don’t plan my life around decent chances. So I’m considering doing any of the following if I’m left empty handed next summer: A. Quit to go to industry B. Go back to my old, small firm as a manager (micro-cap SEC clients, but better work life balance) C. Stick it out as a disgruntled employee until I’ve had my fill or find another firm that will take me on as a manager. Thoughts? Specifically for anyone that wasn’t promoted in an expected promotion year.

If you don't get promoted have a serious conversation with your career advisor first. They may have thought you just need a little extra seasoning or develop some skills. Even if you do leave, it could be things that might help you improve in other roles in your career.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
