How’s the promotion cycle at Strategy&? 1. When does it happen? 2. Does everyone get promoted at the same time or is it dependant on performance (for real, many companies say that but then do otherwise) 3. Can people get promoted within less than a year of joining (if with previous experience, even when joining as AC)? Thanks!

When you join as an associate on the grad scheme, you get promoted after 2 years to senior associate. Everyone from the intake gets promoted unless they are quite bad at their job. After that, it depends on performance - promo to Manager can happen in as fast as a year. I’ve seen promo from A to SA in a bit more than a year for a highly qualified and high performing person, who probably should have been hired as SA in the first place.

Curious if anyone has advice if I should look for another job. My boss is a micro manager, not big on WLB, I don’t see an opportunity to independently work on projects ever and there is no path to promotion since it’s a very small team. On the flip side, he’d take me to all exec meetings and it’s been in an incredible learning experience to be in those rooms, listening and knowing where I’m making an impact. He’s been a good coach and thinks highly of me. (Contd.)

I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?

I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?
