Are promotions harder at FAANG companies? The companies seem more flat than consulting.

In industry the person above you may be there for the next 20 years. Remember you left consulting for better hours and in some cases better pay. Not the fast track to promotion.

Most of the people high up there love their job, work reasonable hours, and get paid a ton. Why would they leave?

Promotions outside of consulting are generally harder I found. Consulting (to a certain level) you bust your ass and play the game a little you’ll get promoted. Normal companies it’s a lot more difficult because spaces are limited and politics matter a lot more

like

Promotion requirements are also a lot more convoluted and difficult to gather in industry. In consulting the bar is definitely higher but atleast you know where it is.

If you want to go beyond L5, it is quite difficult.

Yes, I agree it is likely more difficult. At the same time change is ever present in these companies which makes opportunity for promotion.

Different animal entirely. People get comfy doing a job well. And maybe look to a promo maybe not.
