Just got passed over for a promotion in favor of a new hire. Trying to balance "shut up and get over it" with "is this the place for me?" while New Person gets work I want & have done in the past.

Did your manager know you wanted the promotion? If yes, ask what you need to do to be considered for promotion in the future. Get specific steps in writing. If you can get actionable feedback, it might be good to stay. If you get the runaround, you should probably look for a new gig.

In a way. I raised the idea of hiring a jr. person so I could get out of the soup and back to higher level work and mentoring. Instead, after more than a dozen years as a PM (not all at current company), apparently I'm said jr. person.

OP, definitely talk to your manager and directly say something like, “I would like to be considered for promotion and am disappointed a new hire was brought in for the senior position. What should I do to be considered for future opportunities?”
I used to manage a department. Believe me, it is good to be as communicative as possible with your boss. Your manager might have been looking for a certain skillset that had to be hired from outside, or might not think you are ready for promotion for some reason. But in order to get what you want, you have to find out what you need to do.

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA? Was just told that there is likely not going to be a chance for a raise during my upcoming performance review due to my salary already being “above average for the industry” based on my employer’s questionable research. I’ve been with the company 8.5 years & am the only one in my role, which they can’t operate without. I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.

1) As someone trying to get fast tracked for promotion IA, should I push to get on a project during Ramadan OR spend my time on firm building in Ramadan and try to get staffed afterwards? Would prefer the second option so long as it doesn’t impact promotion.

2) if the reco is to max utilization and be staffed during Ramadan, any advice for balancing fasting + long working hours?

I was given a promotion 6mos ago & told that the position was a lateral move & a raise would be given at my 6 month mark. Throughout my time at time at this company I’ve realized that they call people in to give their raise on the exact date of milestones (i.e: 6 mos, 1yr, & so on). It’s now been one week since my 6 months in this new position. I’d like to reach out to my boss and set up a meeting to review my work & discuss a raise. Should I wait a bit longer or should I set this up now?

Annual Raise coming up:

Current salary is X where X = $75k + an annual bonus that only applies if the company does well that year

Desired salary is Y where Y = a range from 80 - 89.999

Problem is I've been told that salary typically only gets raised 3% each year, without deviation.

To reach Y, I would need at least a 0.0667% increase or so.

Am I boned or.. ?

I've been with the company for 10 years in various positions, but 2.5 in my current. My previous supervisor would never entertain any negotiations above the offer letter; stating "the offer is final". I've spoken with other colleagues and its not true.

Any advice for negotiations, and how much is too much?
