He recently got promoted & I didn’t (started the same date) & when he talked about it, he shared that his selling point was his contribution towards the new system. I hate being one to complain or quit because hey, I’m still getting paid right but it was really discouraging. Also part of me couldn’t help but to think that maybe there was some discrimination going on as I’m a black woman & he’s a white man. Or maybe my CC just sucks lol. Also in frustration, I applied to Deloitte & they offered me a position as a Consultant (currently an Analyst so I’d be jumping up two levels) with a 20k increase. Happy about it but don’t want more of the same & can’t decide if it’s worth it to jump ship & build my rapport again or just suck it up here & hope for a promotion at the end of the year. I also don’t wanna go above & beyond at a new company for it to be fruitless again. This is my first IT/consulting role & I’ve been in it for a year so honestly I didn’t & still don’t know what to expect. It’s also difficult to get insight because I’m one of the few on my team who hasn’t met any of my coworkers & it’s pretty cliquey here. Is it pretty much like this across the board?

$20,000 is a good bump. I would weigh factors like retention/ stability of both roles before making the jump. I am experiencing something similar as well. I don’t want to leave, but I think it may be time to reassess my own worth. I am in my prime money-making years and feel tired of getting little salary bumps while the men make way more. Some of them are wonderful, hardworking colleagues; whereas others do very little but earn way more. Good luck in whichever decision you make!

Here's my two cents: 1) Definitely have a heart to heart with your manager 2) Take the pay and title bump regardless of feedback from your manager. You can still improve on any areas you need to improve on at a new firm while being paid more. 3) Don't expect things to not be same again at a new firm. You will go above & beyond (because it's ingrained in you through your upbringing), but it also might be fruitless (totally depends on what kind of people you are working with, which is just luck of the draw, and chances are very high you'll encounter colleagues who can "show" they are working as much as you without actually working as much).

This is the answer

What happened to you was wrong, like not being acknowledged really does suck. You need to have a heart to heart with your manager without telling them you have an offer. This is easier because now U have a fall back in case it gets heated. This will make you feel better as your voice is heard, get feedback Regardless I would leave and try getting better at self promotion. Your current manager may assure you but their patterns and arehard to change. Also you’re moving up faster, getting I’m assuming 15-30% more pay, and you’ve likely been here for <2 years so not like you’re burning deep bridges. Leave so you can boomerang again for another fast promotion! At junior levels this is the way to go

I had something similar. Colleague took credit for my idea. It was a pretty major component of the product launch. It became a pattern I saw. One day he took credit for the boss’s idea in front of stakeholders! We’re both white men of similar age and background. We were friends before this. Another, much high ranking person in the org watched him and described him as a virus. He left soon after.

From that I learned People don’t know you’re doing a good job unless you tell them It’s tough to navigate between being arrogant and standing up for yourself. Some people won’t like it for various reasons. To which I say So what? As long as the people whom I need to contribute to my success are good, then so am I. Don’t needlessly piss anyone off, do good work, be known as working well with others and you’ll be fine
