How does the SA to consultant promotion work? What should I be doing to prep for it and guarantee it (considering external factors)?

From my time at ACN, the defining line between SA and C is the ability to pick up tasks without much or any guidance and complete them as expected. You should also be more client facing and be able to own small work streams. If you can highlight examples of doing this - in project work or firm initiatives, then you will improve your chances.

Well I think there are few of things. 1. Independent do work and impress clients. (You can control this) 2. Your CC and account team for your back (you can somewhat control this). 3. Politics (you can't control this).

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
