Hi all, as a quick background and introduction:
I am 32 years old and work in an Operations/Commercial Finance capacity within the Pharma industry.
I have been in this position for going on three years and have been promoted once over that time frame with strong reviews each year.
My company in particular advocates lateral movement, which in my case could include a transition into another finance function or into the business (marketing, etc.) itself.
This leaves me with three options:
1. Remain where I am and continue to hopefully work my way up a bit more (potentially limited growth)
2. Transition into another finance-related function (a bit unsure where I would "rather" be - however Treasury and IR do interest me)
3. Lateral into the business (this to me is the most risky but potentially the most rewarding/interesting).
Anyway, curious if anyone has any insight or advice. Especially if you've faced similar situations, I am wondering what the best course of action here is.
