That is lengthy however selections are time delicate. Admire the AAM neighborhood’s insights.
This time final 12 months my org (enterprise growth) determined to restructure and a part of that was merging two similarish groups (gross sales proposals). I’m largely a mission supervisor and author and have been on a type of groups since 2017 first as a supervisor then promoted to senior supervisor for benefit in Jun 2021. No direct studies. With shifts in priorities and desires my present director was going to be shifting laterally to a unique space and the opposite individual in the identical position in my outdated workforce was going to maneuver along with her.
On the time it initially got here up they requested me if I needed to stick with proposals or strive one thing new within the restructured enterprise growth workforce and so they’d be delighted to have me in both space. I debated it however opted to stick with proposals, reporting to the Sr director answerable for each the merging proposal groups, and ultimately we made a plan for me to get promoted to Asst Director (a task that solely exists within the different proposal workforce’s construction, however since we have been merging was now an possibility) and backfill a pair new proposal managers to report back to me. I helped her put collectively job descriptions and workflows and he or she was working with compensation, HR, finance, and so forth.
Promotion was imagined to occur finish of final FY however then we discovered that in the event that they did that, it will come out of the general benefit bucket in order that they advised me Q1 FY23. Cool, I suppose. A minimum of I get extra money that manner (2022 elevate +promotion each). Attended our nationwide gross sales assembly in October with the understanding that I used to be going to be main the proposal workforce for my topic space. Instructed a few folks confidentially as a result of they have been like hey what’s up along with your workforce in case your director is shifting areas. They have been all pumped and supportive. New assumed future supervisor, the Sr director, retains pushing for updates from HR however nothing is shifting.
A few month in the past they offer the Sr director I’ve been working with a brand new boss of her personal, and the whole lot screeches to a halt. Final week I met with this new huge boss at her request and he or she gave the impression to be feeling out what I needed vs her envisioned workforce construction, and I discussed trying ahead to doing one thing completely different, however associated to maintain supporting proposals however get away from the grind a bit. Earlier this week we had an all workforce assembly the place she introduced nobody will probably be getting these assistant director roles going ahead because it’s not an org commonplace position, however current ones on the workforce will probably be grandfathered and he or she’s planning on hiring a director and proposal supervisor for my workforce, and even mentioned she was assembly with me later this week with HR on the decision. My outgoing director IMs and says sounds such as you could be getting Director as a substitute and tells me she has my again.
And immediately the brand new huge boss meets with me to inform me she’s hiring a director for our workforce to switch my present one with supervisory and upstream/downstream expertise that I admittedly don’t have, in addition to a brand new proposal supervisor reporting to that individual, that the Sr director’s workforce is staying separate as a substitute of merging, and he or she’s so blissful to supply me a “promotion” that’s actually only a elevate (7% and doubling my bonus, however bonus is contingent on making plan on the org degree, promos are often 10%) and the promise of getting a direct report someplace down the road to start out getting supervisory expertise (which is assuming that plan doesn’t change between now and an undefined future date).
I requested some questions on their plans and nonetheless thanked them for working to place collectively one thing out of the field, as a result of it’s uncommon for my firm to do issues this manner, off cycle and for a up to date division however not title that comes with a elevate anyway. I additionally was candid that this was disappointing given the conversations and understanding we had labored beneath, up till this girl got here on board, particularly because the authentic timing would have had this completed already and me grandfathered in with the brand new title. New boss girl advised me she didn’t notice issues have been as far alongside on the promotion as they have been and he or she felt dangerous that this wasn’t as thrilling a dialog as she was imagining it will be.
I referred to as my outdated director to fill her in and actually complain a bit and he or she nearly hit the roof as a result of apparently the promotion we have been engaged on for me was additionally promised to her and the senior director by new huge boss girl. Which signifies that there’s no manner she was being sincere with me about that. My finest guess is that she didn’t know that _I_ knew how far alongside it was.
I’m torn on whether or not to take up my outdated director’s supply to escalate this. Clearly it doesn’t matter what at this level I’m going to be in some way on the mistaken foot with the brand new huge boss due to her shadiness, however how a lot am I taking pictures myself within the foot spending my capital on this? I’m typically properly appreciated and revered and there’s a part of me that’s okay with extra money for a similar work I’m doing now, however however I’d actually love to do one thing completely different, and I’m a bit soured on this individual now.
Assist? I’m imagined to return the supply by Wednesday and am reconnecting with my outdated director after the weekend.
