There have been some recent org changes (good ones) for my group at work and my boss got promoted as a result. My boss is fucking awesome and I really like her. I'm glad I ended up as her direct report (I was originally supposed to report into a different lady at work but that changed when they extended my offer).
Anyway, I think this will be one of those rising tides lifts all boats type thing in that I think I can angle for an early promotion. It's kind of a pipe dream but with the right support and backing from my boss, I think I can do it.
I'll need to plant the seed carefully, though, which I'm not sure how to do. We have a pretty informal relationship so I'm not sure how to approach it without being fully direct about it.
