Misread your post originally, but transferring out of AFS is its own promotion. Trust me

Best chance is overrated. Do what you gotta do while you are on the project. You got this.

They have these 2 yr promo cycle to trap you like a hamster, you should never prioritize "best chance" over better experiences. Your promo rec would've been in by April anyway.

Best chance for promotion doesn't mean much. There's lots of variables. And depending on if you want your long term career to be working in LLP industries, take the chance out of AFS

AFS isn't shitty. It comes down to personal preference. Some people like the slower paced projects with not as much travel in AFS. So it's a choice

Work life balance tends to be much better in AFS. It depends what type of work you like to do too and the client. The federal business is also growing, so there is a lot of opportunity for promotion.

F' AFS. It's a looking proposition. Do the job that gets you promoted so you have more flexibility to do what you want later.

Wait AFS is that shitty?

Actually AFS promos tend to be faster I think, but I've never heard of anyone doing anything interesting for AFS

I’m permalancing with a day rate. Creative manager just reached out to “confirm” what days I worked this week — we were awaiting client feedback during one of them, so she doesn’t want to count it. This feels underhanded to me; I still made myself available and I can’t book other jobs when the workflow is unpredictable. Can I push back?
