If I move into a financial analyst position after two years of audit experience (and 1 promotion) will i likely start at the bottom of the totem pole? Trying to get an idea of what my salary would be. I feel this role is kinda critical for my 20 -30 year plan so I’m willing to start at an A1 position again. any insight here would be great. Thanks
In need of some guidance re: a potential promotion. A senior writer on my team is leaving and I’m hoping to transition into that role (I’m mid level). Last week I talked to my GCD/manager about the writer leaving. We mostly only talked about passing along recos to get a referral bonus. Then it hit me hours later: I’m the one for the job. I set up time to talk to said manager. I have my reasons all set and ready but I’m worried they’ll say no on the spot. How can I best prepare?

I need to get out of this industry. I can’t deal with the hours or the egos anymore. I work every day, late hours, have no time to care for myself, my partner, my home or my family. I am interviewing at other agencies but get a sinking feeling - I can’t jump from this situation to another just like it. No clue where to go or what to do. Any producers out there who have exited and found a better balance in their lives? I’m miserable and it’s destroying my health and my marriage.
