I make about half of what the other folks on my team make. I trained my manager. And I'm 99% certain that I'm not going to get a promotion. I have excellent performance feedback. Advice?

I'm in a similar boat. I think it comes down to politics and making your work "visible" with the key people who can control your promotion and raise

This is partly why I left Accenture. Promotions were very political and based on tenure rather than work. If your career counselor is not active in your career I would say you're first step is to find one who will be.

K1 - is KPMG better in that regard then? Have usually heard positive things

Yes it is. Your PML's (or career counselors) are highly active in your growth at the firm and you aren't just another ant in the dirt like you feel at Accenture.

Be patient. In my experience they have a way of making things right. My manager promotion was delayed and in hindsight I'm don't better for it

^lol. Not sure about KPMG but I can relate to being an "ant".

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events.

Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?

It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
