So. I was due to leave my current account this week, starting at the new account next Tuesday; but yesterday my current account director told me that he'd spoken to my new account director and I was going to stay for at least another four weeks, due to the fact that there is no-one to do my old job and the bid I'm doing is business-critical. He then wandered off.

I feel very much taken advantage of. My new role is a promotion, doing something I enjoy, with more people under me, in a global account- my company's biggest account. The new account is in difficulty at the moment, losing money- but it's turning around. I'm under no illusions that the new role would be difficult, but my current role is not healthy for me. Being made to stay in my current role is stressful, unhealthy and detrimental to me- and I'm not getting anything in return for this; in fact I'm losing out by not going to the other role! I do feel great responsibility for my current account, I don't want it to fail and I don't want to be in any way responsible for the business suffering.

I'm not quite sure what to do. This can't continue.

    I am sorry to hear that. I totally understand the frustration.

    Do the best you can. Set boundaries. What ever you do, throw your best effort in, but don't let it emotionally own you. It's really hard to do, but as one who has made it through by doing so, please believe me when I tell you that it's possible.

    Again, I'm sorry to hear.

    Would you be able to speak to your New Account Director and discuss the situation?

    Otherwise, speak with current Director, lay out the facts, the money, and the promotion stats, and tell him that unless they are willing to provide you with the same level of benefits, it is not your concern or responsibility to have coverage for your position.

    The Director, knew you were leaving, and should of taken the duty seriously and done their job to find a replacement for YOU, and not FORCE you to stay in the position, or eliminate the extra money, and promotion from your pocket.

    Write down all your concerns. State them in a professional manner and ask what each Director will be doing to come to a mutual understanding the is conducive to everyone.

    Good Luck my friend!!!
