What are your views on promotions — should they ALWAYS be driven by the employee (“I want a promotion. How do I make this happen?”) vs. the manager (“I think you’re ready to grow into a new role”)? I recently got a new manager who aligns with my career interests, but both of us are still under my previous manager who treats people as resources. I’m bitter about the upward progress of peers on other teams (w/ better managers), a combo of FOMO + feeling like I’ve failed myself.

Hello Everyone, I have 4.3 YOE currently and I was offered Engr II - Full Stack position in VDSI. But after doing some research it seems Engr II is usually for YOE between 2 and 4. Is this correct? Will there be a problem for me if I take up this position with my YOE? Since I am a lateral entry, I think promotion to Engr III also would take a lot of time. Also can you please let me know the current designation hierarchy in VDSI?

I started a new job in January and have performed well. The person who is a step above me in organizational hierarchy is leaving and my director has recommended me to take the vacant position. This of course comes with more administrative responsibilities along with the work I am currently doing. Director says he will suggest a 10k pay raise, but I believe the added responsibilities should be worth more. Am I wrong asking for 5k more?
