Hi! I'm here searching for some advice. In August, I will have completed 4 years as an HR Coordinator (non-exempt). My first year, I did not fully achieve expectations in my performance review; the past 2 years, I have exceeded expectations. I feel that I am on my way to a third year of exceedingly good performance. I recently inquired about promotional opportunity, seeing as other peers who have graduated in my graduating class (May, 2007) have already been promoted into Generalist or Specialist roles. She mentioned that a junior Generalist role may be appropriate. I felt slighted. I would like to be a Generalist. I work 60+ hours per week and manage an intense workload. I have a very strong reputation when it comes to performance.
Do you think my sentiment is appropriate?
I would consider other opportunities, but I truly enjoy my job and am very comfortable where I am at. I do not consider myself ready to make a move at the moment. However, I consider myself to be a high potential person, and I care very much about my reputation. Remaining in a coordinator level role for 5 years is not a positive indication of someone with high potential.
Just looking for some feedback here. Much appreciated.
