I've been at my current company, in the same position for about a 1.5 years now. My team and boss are great, plus I get a decent amount of control over what projects I take on and can tailor it to my interests. The work-life balance and compensation (~100k) are also quite good for the level that I'm at (Product Designer). All-in-all, I really like where I'm working.
A few months ago my team announced that they're hiring a new VP for our department and are going to be restructuring. They heavily implied that this will be giving team members opportunities to move into more senior positions as we grow the team and hire more people. I'm hoping to move into a Senior Product Designer position which would be a title change and a salary increase to $110-$120k yearly. My actual responsibilities wouldn't change much as I've taken on more ownership of specific products and projects in the last year but there would be a change to start managing junior designers who join the company.
The main problem is that the company has been dragging their feet. They said we'd hear about the new team structure about a month after the VP started but it's been a full 2 months with no updates or comments whatsoever. Meanwhile, I'm getting multiple recruiter messages on LinkedIn for Sr.Design positions at different companies that would come with a pay raise and better title. The main thing making me hesitant to move is the amazing culture at my current company and the big question mark on if my future boss/co-workers would be as flexible and supportive.
I want to have a frank discussion with my boss about the situation and put a little pressure on him to follow through. He's said previously that he supports me moving up in the company to a sr role and has always been great about talking up my achievements. I want to make it clear that I'd really like to stay at the company but every month that passes by with no updates is a potential wasted opportunity for me.
Any advice on how to approach this topic in our 1:1?
