My Manager Moved: Manager Mobility and Subordinate Career Outcomes
Beck, Minseo; Bidwell, Mathew; Keller, J. R.
Managers change jobs with some frequency. Considerable research has focused on the implications of these moves for both the managers and their organizations. But what about subordinates who are left behind? What happens to their careers? This study aims to answer these questions by analyzing the career moves of over 30,000 direct reports in a large United States-based healthcare company over an eight-year period, focusing specifically on the ways in which a change of managers affected subordinates’ subsequent earnings and chances of promotion.
