Hi, I joined PwC FDD in January as A3E (cohort level). I was SA1 at KPMG Audit and was demoted for some reason. Will it be possible to ask for a promotion from A3E to SA2?

To understand correctly, you want a promotion of 2 levels?

Probably not (also in FDD). PwC has traditionally had a 3 years to senior path so while you were an SA1 at Kpmg, you would have only been an A3 at PwC. A new A3 that transferred to FDD from PwC audit would definitely not be able to come in as an SA1. In fact even if they were an A2 about to be early promoted in audit they probably wouldn’t get to come in as a senior into FDD. You may be able to negotiate where you fall on the SA1 cohort, like SA1-B or C, but I don’t think you can just skip SA1 all together.

Generally you want to prove yourself and then bring it up. Once people know you and you have a good reputation, it’s a lot easier to have a productive conversation. My friend got demoted to A3 and made senior in 6 months and manager 1.5 years later

From the start of 2020 to the end of 2021, I single handedly kept our marketing department stay alive at a smaller org. Right before my boss got fired, & a coworker left the company, I was already taking on an operations role, plus my role at the time (marketing coordinator). For the next year, I would take the role of the VP marketing, a marketing manager, an operations coordinator and my role. I have since only been given a small raise (after fighting hard) and promotion & still only make 44K
