Project Manager, Construction in Austin:
"Get Money."
Patience is good, but make sure your employer puts his money where he mouth is when it comes to seeing raises and promotions you've been promised. In my experience, if you don't help/force it along, it won't come to fruition on its own. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, I've learned that the hard way, since I am typically someone who prefers to appear grateful and quietly content. Meanwhile, those more verbal advance quicker.

Project Manager, Construction in Hazlet:
"Advice."
Write everything down. When I was young and in school, I thought I could remember everything. Turns out you only remember stuff after taking notes and then reviewing them later. Turns out that is a really important part of your professional life that you need to continue.
