I’ve been at current company for over 4 years .
In my current department , I’ve been here over 2 years.
The current issue is where in those 2 years , I have had no promotions and it seems like other people in the department are getting promoted ahead of me or being put forward for more senior roles.
A bit of background:
Upon joining this department I really got on with my manager at the time.
They left, where that manager was replaced with one I really did not get on with at all. Things got so bad between us, to the point that they bad mouthed me to the rest of the leadership team and even became so vindictive to the point that they told my current manager to give me a poor performance review - which they didn’t. They are a long term employee in that department and is good friends with the leadership team.
Anyway, that manager made a mess of the situation generally managing the teams, and was replaced by my current manager who I get on with.
Since current manager has joined , even though we get on , and there are no issues between us.
It seems as though he is struggling to get me pay rises and promotions. Yet at the same time, it seems as though others are - immediate peers or others.
I’ve asked my manager what I needed to do to get considered for promotions, where I have done those things but he still can’t deliver. He’s getting blocked by his boss.
When asked , he tries to justify it over x, y reason, where the bar is being set super high. Yet I’m seeing the people getting promoted doing much less, or the equivalent where the only thing that they have in common between each other is where managers like them on a personal level.
Vibe I’m sensing, although not confirmed, is where the other managers do not like me on a personal level after the falling out with my past manager and are making it awkward and difficult for me to progress my career within the org.
So the question is where if that is the case, am I wasting my time being here or is it time to leave org?
