I've been working at a FAANG company for five years now, and I feel like I will never get anywhere beyond what I am doing/my position as of now. Am I stuck if I can't make it farther at one of the top tech companies in the world?

Have you explore options other than your current position? Could be other teams internally, other FAANG, other tech, or something different altogether.

the larger the company, the longer it takes to get promoted. it's a natural result based on the relative importance of your work to the company. at smaller startups, it was normal to see 10 - 15% raises annually, and promotions about every 1 - 2 years. at square, i'm seeing that the timeline for a promo is more like 3 - 4 years. ask for bigger projects and more responsibility to make a case for your promotion. discuss a path to promotion with your manager and set goals accordingly.

Just wanna emphasize the difference between title promotion and a raise. Big tech companies still give pay raises at the same rate as the smaller startups you mention. If you're seeing less at Square, might be worth exploring your options. I'd say that sounds right for titles though. YMMV.

HSBC Results are out HSBC’s pre-tax profits almost doubled to $2.7bn in the final quarter of 2021 as the UK lender’s commercial banking revenues were buoyed by growth in credit and lending.

Curious how other marketing teams like to share resources internally. I'm considering creating a centralized hub where departments can access news, branding information, logos, premade materials and basic templates like letterheads.
