Sr eng, joined 1 year back, and looking for staff, I got exceed in last two ratings and did lot of work. Talked to manager, he/she listen but think I am being too ambitious. I work hard and contribute as staff, this gets recognized as well.
Looks like their are other folks in pipeline who are older than me in company and my short tenure here is another reason. Manager not giving clarity when I will be getting promoted which is frustrating to me. Tc 320.
With this frustration, i started looking out and got a Principal role of 400K in Salesforce. brand is good but not as good as LinkedIn.
Now confusion start, Higher level, role and salary, just as i wanted but a level down in company.
What should you do in my situation ?

If you prefer LinkedIn, ask for a match.
