The Career plateau: What to do when a career bogs down

, : The Career plateau: What to do when a career bogs down. Cornell hotel and restaurant administration quarterly 24(2): 83-91

The career plateau must be recognized, especially in the mature hospitality industry. Maturity within an industry signals a halt to the rapid expansion experienced during its growth years and results in a limited number of middle- and upper-level management positions. Aggravated by pressures from the bottom by those who want to be on top, companies experience difficulty providing the growth and development promotions which have attracted promising candidates in the past. The managerial career plateau is defined (employers cease promoting individuals for an extended time period) and problems associated with plateaued managers (dissatisfaction, disillusionment, obsolescence, career inflexibility, lack of authority, job insecurity and compensation insecurity) are discussed. Additional suggestions are offered regarding personal strategies (actions to be taken once the plateau is recognized) and organizational strategies (acknowledge that plateaus exist and develop action plans and policies to deal with them).
