Starting a job as a Senior Accountant next month. How long should I be looking to become manager? Salary increases? Just curious after a conversation I’ve had with a recruiter. I don’t know much about industry promotions.

industry promotions are not scheduled like they are at big public accounting firms. they’re as-needed. so unless someone leaves or your department needs to grow in a specific way, there won’t be a role open for you to be promoted into.

Thanks! I figured as much.

Congratulations on the move. One of the turning points in my life for overall happiness was leaving PA for industry (coincidentally I also left GT as a senior accountant). Depends on the company but my experience (Fortune 1000): I was promoted after about a year or so, but it was because there was an internal opportunity and I was simply offered the job of the departing person. I think there may have been a promo coming anyway but that move accelerated it 6 mo- 1 yr. Another person on my team did get promoted without anyone leaving roughly a year after I did. We started around the same time. Salary increases are likely to be small even before covid. I did get a small bump and an annual bonus to my comp with the manager promo, but otherwise 1-3% a year is normal.

Best chance at an internal promotion is a larger company.

[UK] I’m fortunate to not need my year end bonus (~£20k gross) for immediate use. I’m considering whether to A. Take it and invest it (e.g., ISA, S&P 500 tracker or similar, not too exotic), B. Sacrifice all of it to put in my pension, C. Spend it or D. A combination of the above. (NB: If I take it, I’ll lose ~50% of the bonus given my tax bracket; I’ve already ‘maxed’ my pension so firm won’t match any more that I put in the pot). What do you advise? Thanks in advance. Hard to know what’s best!
