I have a weird situation. I am an SFA with a CPA working in the finance department doing FP&A. I was tasked by the CFO to hire someone to help the sales department with reporting. Normally this is done by the sales department but there was a situation so I was tagged to help. I hired the person using MT methods (extreme bias towards avoiding a bad hire) and everyone thinks I made a great hire. I am rolling out the trinity using road map etc. all good there. It's weird because I am still working in finance, I have no desire to go to the sales team beause I am very happy in finance and the CFO wants to retain me there. I asked about getting my title changed to a manager title and was told no. Now they want me to hire and manage another employee for something else that isn't directly related to finance (more of an IT/Admin Jr role). This is a big company (~1,000 heads), I feel like I should be getting at least a manager title because I am doing all of my IC work + new management work for stuff that isn't even in my normal business domain. I can't find a specific cast about this but I am assuming a positive intent, doing the best I can to grant these favours and doing what management feels is best for the org. Any other advice? My manager just says it's a weird awkward situation and the CFO told me not to sweat it.

In my experience if you do more than you get paid for in time you'll get paid more for what you do. In most circumstances I would agree with your CFO. They'll make it right in time.

If not, don't by any means give feedback. There is a cast for asking for a raise, you can take that route, the other option is start looking for another job and there are a ton of casts for that.
