"So I concluded I was never going any further here, I'm just someone who can make them a lot of money in the position I'm currently in, no need to move me up," Kenan said. 




Kenan (not his real name) has been with his company for six years. The 28-year-old makes great money, and he loves the company and his colleagues.

In fact, he intended to spend the rest of his career there. However, Kenan said that the company overlooked him for a promotion, and it ultimately changed everything.

"My immediate manager announced a month ago that he got a promotion to a different office in the group," he shared on Reddit. "Cue congratulations but also excitement as I also saw this as a great opportunity."

Kenan added: "I know the job inside out, have great relationships with my colleagues and have the top client earnings by far of anyone, plus the three managers I've had have all been promoted from my position."

"I messaged my manager and HR that I wanted to be considered for the position and received a reply from HR acknowledging it," he continued.

"Two weeks later we're called into the conference room and introduced to the new manager, no one I knew, never worked for our company before, never worked in our field before, new blood we were told, will shake things up we were told."

Afterward, Kenan said that he approached his manager. The manager told him that he was not even asked for his opinion on his replacement. The manager also explained that sometimes it is just down to the partners' whim and the relationships that have been cultivated with them.

"So I concluded I was never going any further here, I'm just someone who can make them a lot of money in the position I'm currently in, no need to move me up," Kenan said. "So I contacted an agency and had a new position inside a week, slightly less money, and I'm no closer to a management position, but it feels good."

However, everybody now thinks he is an asshole. His old boss pointed out that he is making him look bad in his last days. "Yes, this was an emotional decision, as someone commented, 'I threw a tantrum,' but at the moment, I don't regret it," said Kenan.
