Reviews came and went, was told was up for promotion then a wave of promos happened (April) and I wasn’t on the list. Been told it happens twice a year. Is this a load of BS to keep me where I am?

I’ve been told from a wise man, many agencies are great for having a steady paycheck, but not for growth, so don’t hold your breathe and keep your options open.

Remember that in order to get a promotion there has to be a place on a staff plan for you at that new level so you continue to be funded. It’s no just about doing a great job and deserving it

Be the squeaky wheel. It’s a bummer but unless you keep reminding people, they aren’t going to put effort out for you

A load of BS. Why weren’t you on the list? Keep pushing or leverage with another offer.

Apprently I was behind someone else on the list that got the promo first

It’s not total BS. Publicis has some archaic rules about raises. And when promos happen outside the two windows (Q1 and Q3) they are even harder to sell through with big raises. Your department head (not direct supervisor) chooses who is most deserving, and then those recommendations are sent to Paris for Marcel to choose from. The robots are taking over

My boss is currently working on pushing through a promotion, with a vision to build a team around me for 2022. I haven't outwardly said that I am unhappy, but I know that I don't envision myself here for much longer. I'm in final rounds of interviews & if it works out would be switching industries. Feeling some guilt around knowing how much they are trying to push for me & impact to clients when I might leave soon. Any advice on how to deal w this? Know I can't say much until offer in hand.

There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.

I left KPMG after 7 years after being passed over for Director promotion. I left to start a medical business. 3 months in, my partner and I grossed $130K in sales w/ a 60% margin. Consulting prepared us for this and I’m forever grateful for my experience. I’m honestly amazed at how well consulting skills translate to entrepreneurship. I’m sharing this to encourage anyone who’s been on the fence about starting their own thing. Go for it. Consulting will always be there if you need to fall back.
