They definitely don't need "national approval" unless you are trying to become a partner.

Hard to get mid-year promotions at RSM unless you have had a super stellar first half of the year or it is something that was explicitly discussed with you after roundtables or in an offer. Regardless, talk to your CA and see what they know.

Yea sounds shitty - id think the partner would tell you before Christmas and New Years.

Well not "national" but my direct partner and office partner have already approved (according to CA) and it also has to be approved by regional partner and someone else I believe since it's mid-year.... I just wanted to see if others had heard yet bc they just told me they would let me know before the end of the year

It has already been discussed and CA said partner would let me know before EOY after talking with National Leaders... the partner mentioned it to me after roundtables (back in July) saying it would be a a possibility and even discussing my next year bonus based on my potential promotion... just waiting for nationals to approve

Demand that promotion if you've earned it. "National's approval" sounds like an excuse from your OMP/department head. I seriously doubt the people at HQ are like "Joe Blow" needs another busy season as a staff.

Or senior.

I'd really like to progress to Sr Designer and get my hands into more responsibility and bigger projects. My boss's feedback when I asked how I could work to a promotion was "Find a problem and solve it". I'm feeling a little lost by that? Like a pain point in workflow for the larger team? Or a design problem I'm facing I can creatively work through? None of the above?

I’m in audit looking to be promoted to senior in July. Wondering if there’s any reason to stay at my firm for that promotion if my goal is to get away from auditing.

How do you turn the negative into fuel ⛽️ to overcome and later on (down the line) become stronger...and maybe destroy them? Kidding to a slight degree
