Struggling in my new role, and think making a pivot to an account management role might suit my skill set better. Would raising this to my manager raise a red flag, or is it being proactive?

How long have you been in your current role ?

Raise it immediately, because in most cases a PIP equates to time to help you find a new job.

Yes definitely raise it but also start looking for a new job if it doesn’t work out. I had a coworker last year switch from media planner to digital account manager.

Yeah started applying elsewhere. Just afraid I bring it up and it comes across as me not wanting to be there or do media planning at all

Hi fishes, I am currently a staff 3 at EY GDS and got confirmation on my promotion. I will be a S1 effective from october and i got the exceptional performer rating. But i have 3 YOE with 8 LPA and i received an indirect hint that my hike wont be good. Please let me know your thoughts? How much can i expect in terms (%) increment this year based on the promotion?

For all the US colleagues: A fellow consultant was doing his MBA in the US. He left in a hurry due to covid and came back to London, but didn’t close his bank account with Santander and left $6-7K. Now the bank says that you can NOT transfer the money to another UK bank with online banking and you need to be physically present at one of their branches to do so. He is not planning to go back for a year. Any advice?

I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
