Interviewing with some companies - despite great feedback at interviews, they are all trying to slot me in at an independent contributor level or an level lower than my current. Feeling frustrated - male colleagues are getting lateral positions or a level above current. Need I mention I am also up for promotion at current firm. Has anyone experienced this? Is this bias or just a symptom of the Covid economy?

Both. I'm sorry. You may need to change how you discuss your work. Research shows that women tend to use collaborative language and that can work against them in situations like these. Women will say "we" instead of "I" which can make you sound more like a doer/worker than a manager/leader. Suggest using the STAR model and focusing on on your tasks and your actions and the specific impact of your contributions whenever possible. Good luck!

I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.

Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

I feel like the Senior manager has to redo all (or a lot) of my work. I’ll suggest something, they’ll modify or reject it and then make a decision. Then I’ll execute on that decision and I didn’t have the best idea and it’ll be tweaked again or something comes up and the approach didn’t actually work based on th support. I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...

Curious if there are any Director level people in this bowl that managed to exit to an industry (FS) role by applying to a job posting at an organization where they had no relevant connections/referrals. How did you manage to land the exit ? Would appreciate any insights aside from the typical paths of networking your way in, ATS bingo, pain letters, or reaching out to the hiring manager on LinkedIn.
