I'm stuck in a Senior Director job at a huge company. I have been there for well over a decade. I jumped up the ladder for years, but over the past few years it has been mostly horizontal moves which have broadened my skills, but I feel that I'm not moving forward (or up, as the case may be).
My reviews have always been stellar, and my bosses (and their bosses) have asked me to stick it out and that something will open up. But it seems that most openings go to CFOs or other outside finance execs from companies we are acquiring and that there's no room left for me at the top.
What should I do? Wait? Bail? Change strategy? Demand a promotion (like that would work!)? Thanks.
