QA future career options - I have 10+ yr exp (all in QA both manual & automation) & 4yr with Deloitte as SS (none of my past 4 projects were ready to support my promotion even though I am doing above & beyond my role). I sense that managers don't feel QA is an important part of project & always try to find excuse to turn down the promotion opportunity.

Dear Partners -

Excuse if already being asked (I spent reasonable effort to re-use through 'search')

I'm a 3rd year M pursuing an SM promo. I believe I'm doing well in my current role, and also believe I could do more. Could you help me with these Qs :

1. What can I do to ensure I'm an EFFECTIVE M3
2. What does a EFFICIENT SM1/SM2 look like for you?
3. At this stage I am in, what can I do to make my SM promo a REASONABLE "shoo in"? I'm working with key PPMDs on my promotion readiness.

Thx!

Feeling a tad down. Found out I got promoted a few days ago but besides my parents, did not get the reactions I expected from “friends”. Also I have no one to celebrate with. My family lives far away and moved to a city just before covid so lacking in the friend group department. I feel like I should do something due to blood sweat and tears to get here but feeling sad because I have no one to share it with. What did you do to celebrate?

Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?

I just finished my Masters at UT Arlington. I’ve been working for this firm for almost 3 years in uptown Dallas. I technically don’t have a title, obviously because I’m not license.

I am having doubts in my mind regarding a job offer. I have been working for more than 4 years in Accenture and now I am being promoted to analyst level in September. With market correction and promotion, I might get somewhere around 30% increment. However, wipro has given me an offer with around 55% hike on my current salary but on senior associate level only. Should I take that offer or stay at Accenture only?

Hello all,

I’ve been working for the same company for 3 years now doing traffic engineering in metro Atlanta. We recently had our reviews and our manager did mine and my coworkers as a group, so I didn’t have a great time to try to negotiate my raise (researched average salary, inflation rates, etc). Long story short I asked for a separate meeting to discuss it and he said that I had received a 5% bonus which was the “max allowed” before meeting. I’m now at about $62,700 and looking for input.

Current project is really impactful and interesting but I'm noticing that the work I am doing is not being recognized as much as the people essentially creating slide decks and just "looking busy".

Hey gang, lately I have been thinking if I got underpaid. Graduated from master school right after 2020 pandemic and started by 68K as UXD in digital sales company based in NYC.

My manager honestly told me I was underpaid during 1-1 but since he was newly hired not long ago, he told me he has no solution at the moment. Thinking of starting a new position...
