I’ve been promised a promotion since Jan. ‘22, and each month it seems to get “delayed because of finance issues with client” (huge multinational corp.) and other issues with in house HR/finance depts. I absolutely love my job, my boss, perks, benefits, & it’s all remote. I can’t shake the feeling I’m being led on. Last update they gave was Oct. now they’re saying it won’t be until Dec. I’d hate to leave but I feel like it’s the only way to move up. All thoughts/similar experiences welcome. Thx.

You're definitely being led on and they're going to keep doing it until you leave or give up and don't bring it up anymore. Dust off the old resume and start looking. If you want to move up, you're gonna have to walk away.

Advice: get another (better) offer and tell them you’ll have to leave unless they match. The economy isn’t looking so great so if worst comes to worst, I wouldn’t leave unless I have a job lined up.

This 👆 i was going to suggest the same. Get another offer and see if they can match or beat. As great as any company might be, they need a little push to actually implement action

You are being led on. Even if they “want” to do it they clearly cannot. Get a competing offer and force the issue. Just be prepared for walk.

When you give your notice they will magically find the money and offer the title bump. But know it will be the last raise you will receive for years there.

They’ll use the economy and any business projections or tightening SOWs, etc., as the rationale to keep pushing it out. Decide if you want to stick it out, while passively or actively putting feelers out for new opportunities? Or if your position and standing is secure, then maybe sit tight until forecasts become clearer. I’ve heard a couple horror stories of people getting laid off 6 weeks to a few months after starting because clients suddenly pulled back SOWs or full accounts were unexpectedly lost.

Find a shop that values you.

Are you in a network agency? Is the promo title or title & pay or do you know?

You’re being led on. Find another role and send in that resignation. Then when you get the call from management state why. It’ll get sorted quickly. Do not rescind that resignation till it’s done.

If they want to keep you, they will do it instantly. If they don’t, then the writing is clear on the wall.

While the perks, boss and everything might seem brilliant, there are other jobs out there too; especially if you’re good at what you do.

Don’t get hung up because of sentiment. Try and look at things from a neutral perspective. If you were counselling a friend, what would you tell them?

If you’re still stuck, reach out. I’m happy to help :)

⚠️Toxicity Alert ⚠️

My previous manager would track us by hours daily, made a fuss everytime anything stretched and guilt us for that and the unplanned leave too unless it was COVID. Hinted him a lot of time, this is problematic but apparently he considered it "standard practice for agile".

Now 8/10 teammates have switched within < 1 year of project start (6-7 months with him) which tbh had good work in our opinion and even team was fun to work with even though none of us ever met in person.

Having such bad period pains but I have to stay at the client site until Thursday 🥲 I wanna go home 😭

I’m job hunting, and I’m realizing that I am in a weird gray area of my career. I have 12 yrs management experience with e-com companies, and 5 years as a director.

It seems the only callbacks I’m getting are for management roles, and they are quick to admit that they don’t think they can afford me. But, the director roles want me to have more experience as a director.

Take a lower title/slight pay cut with the opportunity to advance quickly? Or hold out for a director title and salary?

Does anyone ever feel like working in this industry is just overall toxic? Unreasonable deadline times, every single client just being cheap (always quantity over quality), having to play this game of not including everything when you know it is needed, temporary fixes, blame games, and then clients always acting like they are the victim. It doesn’t surprise me but the overall things that happen behind the scenes just for people to get decent work and stay in business just wow…
