2018 in Review Day 6: Career

I’ve been with my employer for 4.5 years. I have a good job with a respected firm. I’m compensated well and have outstanding benefits. I work from home and maintain work / life balance. I have good relationships with my manager and colleagues. My last performance review was solid.

I’ve been trying for the past couple of years to get promoted, without success. One of the downsides of working remotely is that it can be difficult to build relationships. In my case, I need to build a relationship with my boss’s boss and build a case for my promotion with him. I should have worked harder on that this year.

Overall grade: B
