So I always get my work done, manage a team and have contributed great ideas, but when I spoke to my manager and her manager abt a promotion, the feedback was that I’m not enthusiastic enough. How do you show enthusiasm?

People make lame excuses about promotion all the time. the excuse I got isn't even in my control. Best way to find out is probably to ask them, but I expect that it would be things like volunteering for new things, making forward looking and ambitious comments, participating in fun discussions.

I’ve requested to volunteer for additional tasks all the time. Sigh maybe a new job is in order smh

Find a new manager and a new job. The first issue is if she can't or he give you a straight answer as to why you aren't getting promoted then you are never going to get promoted because if you don't know what the issue is you can't solve for it. I have never heard of someone actually use the excuse of enthusiasm?? Also we're in the middle of a pandemic... so you should have responded like while given the current posture of the world I don't really think anyone is enthusiastic right now!

Yup and arguing with them isn't going to really change any outcome at all. It's a hard position to be in but I've been there. You really just have to find another position or sponsor to really help you.

I am S3 and have been put on promotion readiness. But I really don’t want to pursue partnership tax compliance anymore and really have no passion on what I’m doing now, which is processing huge amount of data and cranking out k1/k3s. I got burned out in every busy season and not sure if I’m ready for the upcoming one. So I’m thinking if it is worth to pivot to corp tax since it’s closer to accounting and tax.

Hi folks. I need a genuine suggestion here. In my current company ,I am forced to work in multiple projects at a time. Currently I am working more than 12 hours day. Even after mentioning this to manager , nothing is changed. I didn't get promotion as well. I am not able to understand what should I do now. Because of this recession rumors, I don't know whether changing job is a good option or not.

First time posting, so feedback is helpful. I’m 30, law school educated, and currently work compliance for a big company. I worked through school, but began at this company as a legal intern and have grown my professional career only here. My last promotion was a ladder jump but salary negotiations were contentious. Recently, those I considered mentors left, and new leaders made it clear I’m not valued. I’m a bit directionless. Pivot to law? Hire recruiters? Shoot Resumes? Advice Appreciated.

Got the call today about promotion - super excited for this next leg. Also a bit nervous given performance expectations and the market right now. I know things will improve and I'm in a great service line with huge future growth potential, but a little daunting nonetheless. Great way to start the weekend!
