I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?

An agency has big rocks and small rocks. Their priority is keeping the big rocks from leaving. Everyone else is replaceable. Right or wrong, they see the big rocks as ultimately having the biggest influence on your work. Mostly because they’re ego monsters or the big rock above you isn’t helping make the case for your advancement. Keep jumping until you land in place that values you, or you are considered a big rock 🤘🏼

Track your wins, build cross-functional rapport with leadership, make yourself indispensable, then when you see an opportunity (someone else leaving, a bigger move into a role, taking on more responsibility), ASK. And have a plan of action for if they say no. I did this twice this year at my current company & moved from Sr. Dir to VP and from 190 to 240

Been struggling with this myself. Been at my current job almost 2.5 yrs with stellar performance reviews. Been pushing for promotion but definitely feel like they're jerking me around. I love the account though and want to stay put but also want to be able to grow and advance. I'm also going to be on boss #3 in a few weeks again.

Just put an offer in on a house. Single income: 127 + 10-30% bonus. Promo to M this June. Price: 705k w/ 20% down. 2.75% interest. Remaining assets outside of house = 280k I never thought I could actually afford this much house, but my numbers seem to make it work. Internet strangers, how dumb am I?

So I just found out that I'm being severely underpaid at my job. The average is around 130 for a software engineer 1 at my company and I'm being paid 90. We will have our annual review soon. How should I bring this up without coming off as ungrateful...

Just finished my compensation meeting at work, got my promo and a really nice raise that pushed me into the six figure club. If you had asked me 5 years ago if I'd ever be making this much money or be having this much success I would have laughed. My wife is super happy for me and has been a big support but I'm secretly starting to resent the fact I settled for her. If I had known I could do this well in life I would have waited and done so much better than her 😕

I need some advice. I am a manager under a senior manager. He is a project lead who seems to have an unconscious bias against women. 100% of the people who have quit the project in the last six months are women. He describes my work as low complexity. He blocks my chances for promotion or more ownership other projects. Prior to this role I was in industry as a senior manager working under Senior Directors running more complex projects. What would you do?

Any tips for not crying at work? I don’t get it, I don’t cry normally. In my personal life I usually skip crying and go into the how can I make this better mode.

I gave notice and now many people want to discuss if there is anything they would make me stay. I tell them my reasons (promotion, salary) but I cry!

My new job has a 100% raise to my current salary with equity and bonus. Feel so good to leave a company that takes you for granted and made you do 2 people’s work that not a single soul in the team is capable of or wants to do. To anyone who feel like under-appreciated at work, being taken for granted, did all the dirty job but the reward is more jobs you don’t like. Start looking for new jobs. NOW. If they don’t care about your career or refuse a raise, you just need to find someone who does.

I have been at a large, well-known agency for a while but thinking about making the jump to a small/mid-size firm for a big raise and promotion. Should I be worried about “prestige?” Will it be impossible to go back to large agencies in the future? Would love to know everyone’s thoughts.
