I bust my butt at work. My performance reports are good. Unfortunately, I believe I have made an enemy in upper management who is making it impossible for me to get a promotion. I am not given credit for what I do even though I have developed / onboarded solutions that have greatly contributed to the effectiveness of the unit.
Recently, an outsider was hired. This outsider came in, took my staff, and promoted many of them to my level or above. The outsider tried to get me promoted but was denied.
Any advice on how to navigate this? I love my role, the organization, and the benefits. I really don't want to look for another job. I am absolutely mystified on why promotions seem to be blocked for me. I don't know what I have done.
