I want to join Big4 ( as SA -DS) so I can learn what's new in the industry and see if I can contribute to white papers.

I’ve reached out to partner-mentor in other groups and they explained that this isn’t a demotion but an opportunity to have more time to acquire mid-level skills before being thrust into that role & failing. I GET that but I feel this is something that should have been messaged BEFORE the review. Such an erosion of trust. Advice?
