No utilization for McK until you’re an AP and above. Ours is based on the input managers and above give based on our 6 element leadership development model. Each element has clear guidance on where someone should be at each tenure.

Solely based on how your PL rates you. That’s why the most important factor is WHO you work for. That trumps everything.

Yes there are 6 categories you are rated on

Early years are all about performance, and people wanting to staff you. That’s all. Also, while a single manager can do a lot of damage to your trajectory, it’s also not as easy as people claim. A lot of thought is put in before you give someone a bad grade. There’s also structural protection aka first 4 months of no reviews that exists in some places.

No utilization metrics - though you obviously have fewer reps at improving if you don’t get staffed for long (which won’t happen unless it’s a truly dry spell). Just evaluated through manager reviews across a few categories. Standardized rubric but it obviously helps to have a manager who’s giving you growth opportunities and evaluating you fairly against them (which is generally true). Staffing green lights each review before it’s entered into the system and passed onto you.
