Congratulations! You’ll be fine! In order to get promoted you were probably already working/performing at the next level anyway, or at least demonstrating the key capabilities. You got this, no problem .

Thanks everyone! C1 I don’t have any more specific advice than everything you’ve probably already heard a million times... oh and make sure you have advocates on the PAM team. Doing good work but keeping your head down doesn’t seem to cut it at this level

Congrats! Spoiler alert: it’s definitely not easy at first

Congratulations 🎉

Way to go! I've always felt manager/PL/PM was the toughest role but you learn so much by owning the answer and leading people above and below you. Heavy communication will help you in the early going.

Congratulations!!!🎊 Aiming for promotion in next 6 months. What would you advise?

Just here to say that I miss my former bosses tremendously. They were warm and friendly people. I now work for someone much colder and though the work is better, I wish I had my cuddlier bosses back. 🥲

Haha my son was playing with Magnatiles and ran out. The cattle dog went into the play room to get another stack of Magnatiles for him. I'm dying. Sometimes having a smart dog is annoying AF. But this was not that time. Pic because they are so damn cute together.
