Promotion. Will grab the experience either way

Without good project experience and work - you can't get promoted I think

Hard to say. Promotion since more $ and better resume for MBA school, but experience since getting promoted quickly in the wrong area will pigeonhole you

Analyst level - promotion. Associate and Manager level - experience. More senior positions you set yourself up better having experience in the most valuable industries

What's the use of promotion if you don't know what to do when you get there.

If you have good experience, you'll get promoted. This is not a decision tree but a duality

CA: I have a quick question, we entered into a pre-lit settlement agreement for money owed to my client. The other party has now breached the settlement agreement (almost 60 days). Are the next steps to file a civil suit for breach of contract or is there a faster way to get a judgement enforced? I mainly handle transactional matters but I’m helping a client out with this.

Hey ladies, I recently had my performance review which went very well. My manager wants to make me a manager now but her boss wants to wait and have my promotion attached to something like me receiving a cert. Although I am studying for two certs, why does my promotion need to be attached to an achievement when she clearly sees that my work performance has put me at that level? No one else on the company has had to wait for an outside achievement to be promoted. I truly believe they don’t..

It's been one month in Deloitte that I didn't get any project. I'm a new hire with experience in Oracle Finance Functional testing (though I self learned all concepts and setups mainly in AP, P2P). Managers are not selecting me for implementation projects. Why such discrimination? Why not give an opportunity and check the resource's capability? How will this affect my career at Deloitte? Please suggest as I'm very stressed.

Fellow PMs- I am so frustrated. Im voluntarily supporting a project that already has a senior product manager, so instead of being the main PM, I’ve been demoted to a a pair of hands. This person is a micromanaging perfectionist. Everything from a roadmap to an OKR document needs to be vetted by him multiple times before it can meet the eyes of leadership. Prior to this project , I worked as a solo PM , and owned these tasks with my own unique PM style - and it was received well. CONTD
