No promotion

It was understood by most that I was top of the list for promotion this year but it didn’t happen.

I feel it was because of a monster of a man who somehow is part of senior management that I don’t particularly get along with (nor do many others)...

I ticked all the boxes, am high profile within my dept but he made excuses for reasons that I did I make it.

His opinion counts and therefore it feels that I can’t progress in the co. What to do?

I kicked up a fuss and it’s clear the head of dept wants to retain me so I maybe able to negotiate a pay rise...

Sorry to hear that.

If you think there is a personality issue with a manager you may need to move to a different business to get the promotion - or at least be prepared to resign and see whether they change their minds. Resigning is obviously a high risk strategy though so you need to be prepared to go through with it.
