How were you promoted? Did you ask for it or did your manager start the promotion conversation themselves?

I have made the case each time. Anytime I haven’t gotten it (twice) I promoted myself (went to another company)

like

Gathered metrics on what I had done to improve the business (increased margin, increased revenues and bookings, decreased revenue leakage, etc) and presented it to my leadership as a case on why I earned the promo.

Partner: you should think about getting to the next level (shows me a carrot) Me: Why would I want to do that? Partner: it’s comes with a big pay bump (shows me a bigger carrot). I know you are ready for it. Me: no. I don’t want that. Mid-year time.. Partner: I put you up for promotion. Go fill out his business case Me: ok. Around year-end: Partner: congratulations. You are promoted. Here’s your carrot and a lot more work. Me: 🤷🏻‍♂️

In the past I’ve pushed for it - this time around my manager raised about submitting for promo before I had a chance to bring it up myself.

Made a case and went for it.

Depends on your company

Is anyone ever surprised with a promotion? Or do you really have to push for it? I’m always scared to sound absurd when I think I can go to the next level….

I think you have to talk about it at the very least

I left to another company and went two levels up

I bring it up early to amass support and treat it like a campaign leading into YE. Got 2 early promos with that strategy

I asked the SM I was closest to.

For those who were at mid-tier firms and have left PA/are interviewing, did you feel that your exit opportunities were limited due being at a mid-tier? I’m genuinely curious as I’ll be joining a mid-tier and I am coming from a regional firm. Hoping to pay my dues for another 2-3 years to get senior promotion and get my CPA (halfway done) then exit PA. Don’t really want to hop into B4 but everyone always talks about the B4 prestige being a huge resume booster.

Started new job at a non-F500 (CorpDev) this week (got offered +45% over my previous base). Received an offer today from EY, which is +35% over my current base. I kinda like the CorpDev gig more and have very little motivation to join EY (that particular team). Can I still use their offer to pump up my current base here at the non-F500? How can I ask for a raise and not set wrong impression so early on?
