SA1 to SA2 in PWC is a promotion or progression ? If it's a progression will the resource get the progression by default after an year of joining ?
Hi ladies! I had a call to find out my raise + bonus for this upcoming year and it went well except for the constructive feedback from an old project. I have improved so much since then but my RL brought up old feedback and was very political about it. It opened up old wounds since I made sure on the next project to address those exact points which I did. It made me feel like I made 0 progress since then. Any advice on how to not feel so defeated / sad? Trying to focus on the positive.
Is it true that your first two years are static and you can’t get promoted? I already fulfill all SSS requirements, but was downgraded at SS by recruiter by the promise that I can get promoted within a year since promotion cycle is twice a year? I feel awfully betrayed when my coach said first two years are static. Any experiences?
Starting June 1st I’m beginning a new job. To say I got lucky in this hot job market is an understatement. Previously I was making high five figures. I managed to get a new job with a 57% increase in base pay which puts me in the mid six figures. I never thought I would be offered this kind of salary and I’m currently 27. What are some things that you wish you told yourself before you got an unusually large raise like this.
Promotions/raises: what do you all feel like is the minimum amount of time since joining an agency before its acceptable to request either of these? What about amount of time since the last promotion/raise?
Considering moving to a similar consulting firm for promotion and raise and was wondering how that would look for MBA. If I didn’t move, I would be applying to mba as a senior associate / associate consultant. If I move, I’d be applying to mba as a consultant (mba entry level) / senior consultant. Is it better to stay consistently at 1 firm, or better to apply at a firm where I’d have a higher title + pay?
Hi folks! Would value your advice here. Pre-partner level (AP / Principal) at MBB — have failed the partner promotion and being asked to stick around for at least another 6-12 months as the firm believes in my potential (but of course no guarantee to make it). Gutted for not having been promoted despite the strong traction built. Have an offer from tier-2 (S&, EYP) to join as a partner with significant pay bump. Any of you have been in a similar spot? What would you do? Thanks all!
Currently at $220k TC. Have 2 options on the table: 1. Promotion at current company to $245k TC. Comes with a great title and I’ve never been promoted due to jumping between firms a few times 2. Jump to another company for $395k TC Money is obvious, but wondering how valuable showing promotions will be in the long run
Any of you currently stuck on year-round audits since joining the firm? Does this limit one’s path to manager promotion? What do you do to continue developing your experiences?
Working since 2013 in same company. No promotion Not good Salary Hike. Don't have savings to resign. What should I do?
Hi all! About to pull the trigger and join SKP. Really excited about the team and the projects- everyone seems super down to earth and relatable. I think pricing is fascinating, and I’ll be looking at a promotion and a slight pay bump - everything looks great. I wanted to touch here and ask about WLB. Everyone on the team has assured me that it will be much better than Bain.. I wanted to see how everyone on this bowl has found it. I’ll be coming as a Snr level manager / director, for contex
