Totally PwC. What group?

This has happened everywhere I’ve ever worked. Not that it should at PwC too.

I thought promotions happened a few months ago...

Sounds like a “step up” role on a project, not a true promotion

Not true promo. Team volunteered this individual for a higher level of responsibility within current level. AKA: more responsibility without the pay. And I technically am “under” this person, although we are same level

Pretty unusual for this to be a collective decision unless it becomes rotational for peers to get similar experience. Strange.

Looks the like they get more accomplished than you in the same amount of time
