Two Qs: 1.) How does your agency go about promotions? 2.) What’s your promotion cycle flow...2x a year or 1x a year? Seeing less and less transparency under WPP...

Why is the WPP promotion process so terrible?
Grey just emailed us saying two senior level execs have been promoted, and yet, my boss and HR tell me nobody can get promotions/raises until the WPP promotion cycle in the fall. COOL. 🤔

Lots of justified negative energy on FB. Here is my proposal- Let’s all make honest efforts to make work not just bearable but also respectful, empathetic, and productive for each other. We all have pain points at work and don’t always take ownership of how we’re the pain points for others. Hope everyone has a more positive day!
Im a BDR at a large medtech vendor that expanded into SaaS complimenting our existing smart devices at hospitals. Sales cycles are long in this industry (min 12mo), but seems our value-add platform is so new to market that it’s taking longer (16-24+mo). I’ve been here for over 6mo and support 3 AE’s with zero pipeline and wins, despite meeting my own metrics to get meetings. Is this complex environment usual for enterprise software sales? Not sure if I’m hurting my new sales career by staying.

Hi, I had my Accenture HR round last Wednesday and everything was discussed, from salary structure to usual HR interview questions. I am yet to receive any communication for further processing including my BGV and rest of the process. I called the HR yesterday and said I will receive further communication. Can someone please tell me if there is a chance that they will send me offer letter or any further processing and if this is normal for Accenture to take time after having HR round?

Hi 🐠: need some perspective. Currently approaching the end of my notice period at the current firm having accepted a role. However been getting much better opportunities to interview at other firms now. Have 2 months before I join the new firm.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
