So one of my friends got promoted and I congratulated him and asked how management decided to promote him. He told me but asked me not to tell the others in the group cause they would try and pick a fight with management. I know that salary info causes issues but is it really a thing for people to get worked up over how promotes are chosen? This just seems so strange to me.

Very much so. If someone thinks they got passed over for promotion unfairly, they usually give up on the firm and it reflects in their attitude and effort.

Obviously people care about how promotees are chosen... it could literally be their job on the line

In industry, there are a lot more situations where there’s only one manager so someone else being made a manager means the job is taken and there’s no room for the others to move up in the group.

Certain Favoritism / bias from leaders towards promotees happens all the time and it’s BS to those who actually work hard, and do well and make a difference

like

When it comes to promotion, its more like cartel/group that gets preference over talent.

I have been job searching for about 7ish months and am striking out/losing this “game.” Sometimes for salary, sometimes because an internal comes forward, sometimes because the recruiter ghosts me, etc. I have an excellent cross-mktg/comms background with demonstrated success.

If so, I’d love to network with you!!!

How much will be the in-hand salary from this compensation structure?

I'm having a hard time discerning what is better in the long run for compensation.

Front office investment banking (where salary comp is lower for x amount of time but could balloon to the highest at time y)
Analytics or Cloud (where comp is higher or equal for x period and is potentially easier to stay in past time y)
Strategy (or other highly paid) consulting (where I can't really discern it from IB other than from a skills/subject matter perspective)

Could someone please share an opinion?

So at what point is asking for salary expecations allowed? I had a recruiter reach out to me about a potential position, but there was no information about what the salary range could be. So I asked, but was told that the employer will perform a salary evaluation once the candidate is chosen.

Received a job offer from both Amazon and Microsoft in US as account manager for their advertising business. Very similar compensation. Amazon ads seem more interesting and exciting and growing aggressively, whereas for Microsoft will be working mainly with Bing ads. However, Microsoft seems to have better work life balance and culture. Any insights on anyone working in these roles?
