I got my first promotion

Twelve years after I started in tech, I received a promotion to Engineering Manager. This is my very first actual promotion. By actual I mean, I didn’t have to (threaten to) leave, to gain the recognition and fair compensation for my contributions and growth within my company. To me, this is huge. It not only signifies that someone recognised me for my work and drive, but also that there is space for my personality and my ideas.
