Anyone have tips to speed up the timeline to get from senior to manager? Got my first promotion early and hoping to work towards another.
Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
Am I being underpaid? $100k as a 2nd year litigation associate working mostly on insurance defense/transportation cases with a rate of $220 an hour, expected to bill 2,160 a year at a firm of about 60 attorneys in Dallas. I’m asking for a raise soon, how much is too much to ask for?
Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
My off-cycle promotion was announced today as it was getting deferred from last 2 year-end cycles. I was happy with the news and then I was told 3% raise. I am totally shocked and feel rather insulted at the number. Reason- I was already at upper range in the current title! (I know not too much context here) How should I talk to my manager? How much to express? Am I over reacting.
I just got promoted over a friend and I am really worried about how this will impact her. To be honest I think she is even more deserving of the promotion than me. What do I do to make it better so our friendship isn’t poisoned by this?
The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.

Having super anxiety right now. Really want to leave consulting but afraid I won’t be able to find anything with a comparable salary and better work/life — my clients seem to be running just as fast hard. I do like parts of my job, particularly my colleagues. But we are so understaffed it’s insane.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
