Based on having done that kind of work for two successive groups, I was immediately given the promotion in another area. I am sure everyone knew that would happen as soon as I met the HR requirements to switch jobs (ďfree agencyĒ per se).
Iím glad it worked out the way it did, because Iíd almost certainly be worse off right now if I had stayed in the accounting track with my resume.

Typically it would not have been my job to do this RFP, but our timeline was brutal. We have a person who would generally be responsible, but she did not have availability or something. Of course, this didnít stop her from being hostile and territorial, trying to undermine and call into question my judgement.
Anyway, I invited like six people to our lessons learned meeting, and it got expanded to 10 by request. Two people actually showed up, and the person who desperately wants ownership of all RFPs said she would be ďa few minutes late.Ē We chatted for about 25 minutes and gave up.
Afterwards, someone asks if Iím going to set up another meeting, and I just laughed at them. Good lord, I feel bad for anyone relying on that team to produce an RFP.

The best part, imo, that I failed to mention was VPís who already got 2-4x salary bonuses (because we had such a good year) also will be receiving these bonuses.

I am trying not to jump to the conclusion that you should bail. It sounds like not a terrible place to spend the next 1-2 years, until the next step. Thatís kinda where Iím at, just trying to keep myself feeling OK about my situation.
My bonus is complete garbage compared to what my douche ex boss received for his abysmal 2017. And, he was allowed to buy $100k+ in equity in my firm, which appreciated 25%+ over the last 12 months. This is what I mean when I say this is arbitrary winner-take-all bullshit.

I could have saved myself years of ass kickings if I had seen that webinar immediately after college. There is a bunch of stuff in there about keeping your resume current and not staying with the same company for your whole career, but I still shared the slides with the #2 in my firm. I think we need to just create our own version of that webinar to show all our new aspiring advisors on day one.
