Do I get another job offer to negotiate a mid year promotion at my present job?

Posted on 8 February 2018 | 4:50 am by Adobe / BeingB

I busted my ass off and worked for almost 7 days / week for the last one year and released an entire new internal product being used by a lot teams now. I got a huge RSU refresher at the annual rewards check in. But, I was expecting a promotion. Instead another team member got a promotion.

I’m a little pissed and expressed my dissatisfaction. The manager wants me to continue doing good work and tells me that I’m on the path to a higher raise next year. Nothing about a promotion. He gives me some bullshit about how it was just my first year here and my progress has been good.

I’ve been preparing for interviews for a while now. Should I get a new job and negotiate my way to a promotion at the present job? I know it sounds wrong, but I just need to be paid well for my hard work. Just because it takes 3 years for someone to get a promotion, doesn’t mean that I’d wait for 3 years. I’m more of a guy who’d want to do that work in 1 year and get that promotion.

What do you think I should do? Will it backfire if I get a new offer letter and talk to my manager about a promotion?

Ps: I’m single. I work my ass off coz I like my work. I also have a good work life balance. I play sports and workout as well. So, stop hating!
