Going to switch companies, manager offering promotion now, confused.
I am Sde 2 in Amazon . Have been Sde2 from past 4.5 years( Top ratings throughout , victim of reorgs). Currently leading my team and charter. I have no issues with team ,.however it felt my org is pretty unstable (frequent leadership changes) . Also my hike has been 0.4% base, no stocks. Casually tried my luck outside and converted couple of companies (FAANG) with decent bay bump.
Told my manager on Friday about leaving the company.
He looked stumped. Anyways he setup another 1-1 meeting for today and mentioned his plans of putting me up for promotion next quarter. He also mentioned that he has been aligning director from past 3-4 months and is pretty confident of promoting me in Q3. Infact I got a meeting invite from my Director's EA for tomorrow, subject is to discuss my growth options. Strangely before when ever i asked my manager about promotions , he always mentioned he is looking for more data points on something or the other. I asked him today about this and he said he was anyways planning to talk to me by this month end on promotion.
I asked about comp as well, he said he tried his best in annual review but I am already way beyond my target.
Anyways, I am pretty much comfortable in current setting. Should I wait out for promo , or should I still go ahead with switch . If I do go ahead will it burn any bridges since they are now putting in efforts for my promotion ?
Anyone has prior experience with similar development ?
