Thoughts on using a boutique firm’s offer for a more Senior role as leverage to push myself over a borderline promotion consideration in July? 🙄feels shady but have heard it might work?

I’d try to make the case for promotion first, and set expectations for salary. Do you have a case?

Damn.....would be savage....has this ever happened to you, or someone you know?!

@SA1, manager is aware it’s been a goal, if I made my case earlier, say 1-2 months in advance, and then later tried to leverage the offer, wouldn’t it look worse than the reverse? In other words, my fear is the question would be “why did you go looking for other opportunities if you were making a case for promotion”?

@SA1, this was super helpful, will direct message for a quick follow up!

Should I tell them how long I’ve been thinking about leaving D (about 6-12mo) and let them know they could have retained me? (The two optional questions)

Mamas how are y’all surviving going back to work after leave. I feel like I’m sinking over here. I’ve been back for a month and was put on a project with ridiculous hours.

Bit of an odd question. I am classic statistician who now leads a small Data Science team. Most of my time is running multiple projects and no time coding. I am now getting pulled into more and more large dollar proposal work typically centered around doing the same type of small scale DS projects for some DoD client but at scale ie 5-10 projects each at the same LOE of my typical projects but in the cloud. So I could use some advice....see second post
