I’m an L3 SWE — up for promo this cycle with strong ratings.

I’m confident that the SWE career isn’t for me — not as an IC or as a manager. I want to be doing more high-level business/product strategy work and eventually manage people.

I’ve been doing a 20% project as a PM and have discussed ladder transfer with my current L6 PM Manager and a GPM. Need the promo first.

24, thankful to have my bachelors and masters, little debt...1st gen & trying to build my nest egg. However, I just feel so directionless/empty right now, in some ways. Accenture has not enabled me to explore several areas of interest in my first year, and I cannot see a long-term here. It is no time to pivot. Have considered a MD/PhD/MBA...know it’s in the future, but no idea what, when, or where. Just feeling like the days are passing and I’m just doing my best. Any thoughts?

Been at the same company 6+ years, and killing my quota consistently (last 5 years 25%+ when team growth goals were 3-6%). Coworker got promoted to sales manager when she finished an MBA and now I will be reporting to her. Her only sales experience is at this company (6 yrs) and numbers were average. I have 15+ years sales experience and an MA. I asked to continue to report to the director, but told no. Time to move on to a company that values my contribution? This feels like a demotion.
