I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Where do y’all see the future of M7 going? In the next 20-30 years. Will there still be an M7 or will MBAs be obsolete as more and more elite companies do direct promotion? Will HSW still exist or will the value prop of a brand name be diminished a ton with the continuous rise of tech/AI, etc?

In a “normal” year, how much is the non promotional raise for a senior or manager at PwC? Thanks!
I don’t know if this is true or not. But ever get the impression that sometimes when a staff has a kid the standards that the staff member is held to decreases? Maybe an extreme sense there’s undertones of a mercy promotion given for the sake of affording the kid. Not a formal or even an informal thing - just something that psychologically occurs.

In today's "everyone sucks" news, an acquaintance of mine who works at KPMG was told by her workplace to register for the vaccine by saying she worked in healthcare. She did and she got vaccinated. To everyone considering trying to cut the line, think twice about the fact that you've decided that your peace of mind is worth more than someone else's life.
I want to get an offer from another firm to get EY to match. (1) If I go through the process with another B4 and then tell them I’m staying, does that become a black mark on my record if I apply for another job in the future? (2) Should I tell my referral contact about my plan?
Is 35k a good sign-on bonus for B4?
