    Hi! I am on a delicate situation in my career right know and I would like some advice. I joined my current company 4 years ago as HR Generalist through Hays working part-time while studying my Masters and I was hired full-time in 2020 with a different title as HR support Specialist. 11 months after, my FTE reduced to 70%. My senior colleague by then working part-time requested becoming full-time again and promoted to Director. Would you leave in my situation if I dont have any offer yet?

      * Clear Structure - you know exactly where you stand in terms of career progression * Training - both corporate as well as on the job * People - most are great to work with

      Cons

      * Salary - low basic * Infrastructure - very outdated Tech equipment (slowly being brought back up to speed), offices in need of a proper spruce up

      Pros

      Great career progression and training involved if you are wiling to put in the work, they will invest in you as well

      Cons

      Long hours, commission structure is great if you always bill but not if you are a small earner. A lot of competitiveness which can go in the other direction and demotivate people
