Depends on how seriously they're taking it, but usually there's a list of promotion criteria that you can copy paste. Just be careful if they actually care about the goals and will ding you if you miss them.

Thanks for the response! Now I have to find this list. Too many systems can be overwhelming to a newbie.

Which Big 4? PwC no one cares

I've copied the performance expectations for the next level up as my goals for every firm I've worked for, B4 or otherwise.

Ah! That sounds like a great plan! Thank you!

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting.

Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
