What are some specific action items you do when you’re aiming for a promotion for your next promotion cycle? I understand review cycles/processes vary by firm but is there anything you do that is more widely applicable? Such as documenting the work you completed and the resulting achievements weekly, etc.

SC to M, promotion in CBO. I was promoted to SC in Aug 2020, and milestone year shows 2024 (4 years). Is this normal I thought SC-M was 3 years and 2 for an early promo. Can anyone suggest if it's even possible to try to get promoted in 2 years? Just don't want to put in extra effort and getting disappointed later.

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?

Anyone who has/ heard of fbookers who successfully switched roles and gotten a promotion (L3 to L4)? Context I am planning a switch from analyst to data scientist from a non US location to US. However, L4 is needed for this jump (prob due to visa issues). With the current revamp in PSC cycle, I am not sure if I can successfully get promoted by next year and make the jump. To do so, I heard there needs to be 2 EE (for this half and next half). YOE 5, BASE 100K
