I hear ya. I had to watch a fellow consultant get promoted to manager even though he had 2 years less overall work experience than I had. I got promoted a year later but I'm still salty about it

I'm a 30 year old female Director... your issue is self promotion not your gender. In the year you want to get promoted, you need to be working on a ground game the entire year. Everyone in your practice should know you are going for it. Several senior people should support it... ask them outright- am I on track for promotion? Don't wait until review time- by then it is too late.

there.

It's hard male or female. I have seen less competent get promoted over me because I'm not in NYC and I work remote a lot, often on stuff others hate doing.

Yeah remote is hard man.

P1 what practice? Are you FS?

Yes

Email me - fishbowlpwc@gmail.com. Female manager and would love to share tips without outing myself.

Can you girls share tips with me too? I just started as a SA and would love some advice from smart gals such as you how to construct my game plan for promotion in a year or two max. My email is agirlhasnoname121@gmail.com

We girls should stick together

Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
