This is convoluted. I knew two staffs, staff A was way better then staff B. Staff B got promoted and A didn't. From what I gather they have similar utilization, and staff A has better reviews.

Are you staff A?

Had to have been some sort of HR issue, issue with experience management, etc. Staff to Senior is basically automatic. Also entirely possible that the counselor screwed up the entry - mix up between "promotion" and "progression". Would have them validate that with practice or BAP/TAP leadership.

Yeah I though staff 2 to senior was pretty much automatic unless you fuck up badly

Staff B is way better at communicating and networking than A is!

I'd also look at the partners trying to pull up A v B. If A has a partner group that is trying to promote a few others, then the pull could be diluted. If B is the only one for that partner set, they could have a better shot. Promotions almost always should be predicted by a Confidence Interval, not an A v B rational one over the other type view.

Nah, I'm looking as an outsider. Personally I went through something similar. From my understanding staff A networks better (staff to sm). His counselor kinda sucks though, gave me a call to talk about him just before reviews

Both are staff 2 to senior. Our project kinda trust staff A more then B and made staff A played the role of a senior

Counselor could have screwed up rating, but has almost no input on promotion. Promotion is rarely discussed at staff round tables; assumed to be automatic in overwhelming majority of cases. Are you in a specific practice or aligned to one of the staff pools (e.g., BAP / TAP / RAP)?

From what I know they are in BAP. Aligned to different practices. My comments are from a project perspective. Just analyzing it to better understand the firm and the points regarding pped and counselor are spot-on. Just felt bad for the better staff, who might actually leave the firm.

Likelihood of typo is VERY high, and promotions are not in stone yet. Seriously suggest staff checking in with BAP leadership to understand if promotion status is real.

In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues. To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network. My experience seems that the ones let go, had weak network.

Hadn’t noticed this sub before, and most of the threads are old so thought I’d ask a follow up - how has everyone been handling parenting with public accounting? I’ve got a toddler and my wife is an accountant (industry), and we only have a few immediate family in the country- but they have health concerns. Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.

Hi UK Fish, going into a promotion (from C to SC) and raise discussion tomorrow at a boutique consulting firm. Currently at 62.5k. Bonus was up to 10% but all I got was a measly 2%, slow pipeline maybe but I wasn't told why (will raise tomorrow). A recent acquisition has resulted in losing our annual xmas week off and a learning budget of 1k. I know for a fact that last year they were looking to hire SCs at 70k. Is a base raise to 75k a fair ask?
