Yup def. make it known a year out that you want a promotion. Worked for me. I brought it up about once a month and tried not to annoy people but def made it clear I was looking for ops to shine and most people were glad to help.

Did you make a plan with career advisor? I realized today I need to get promoted, start working with a smarter team or move on. I can’t do another year or two of this team.

Every day

D1, I’m the same way. To me it isn’t exhausting because every jump gets me more money lol I haven’t liked any of the firm cultures that I’ve seen so far in consulting.

Yes and it helps to be vocal and upfront about it. It implies you are willing to go the extra mile and make an impact

Doing this helped me secure the Senior promotion as people kept me in mind when they had open work tasks

Any insight appreciated!

Wow so I’m a first time people manager in industry (big company) and I’m in the process of getting one of my direct reports promoted. I am shocked that HR’s formal stance is that I have to jump through hoops to rescope the role to justify the promo instead of singing the praises of the direct report who is a rockstar. Theoretically I get the logic of “emphasize the role and not the direct report” but can’t help but feel disappointed that’s the way it is. Are all big companies like this?
