I have made up (1a) below.

(1a) I have been working for my company for ten years. Last month, I just got a promotion.

(1b) I have been working for my company for ten years. Last month, I  got a promotion. (ny friends' revision)

My non-native English speaking friends think you can omit "just".

Is it wrong to include it? Please help me. Many thanks.

In the absence of further context, "just" means "recently" and clashes with "last month."
