What are some specific action items you do when you’re aiming for a promotion for your next promotion cycle? I understand review cycles/processes vary by firm but is there anything you do that is more widely applicable? Such as documenting the work you completed and the resulting achievements weekly, etc.

I think one of the biggest firm agnostics things you can do is socialize you’re desire to move up and be promoted with the decision makers in your network. Let your managers, project leads, and partners/directors understand this your goal and create channels that help you get there. If you’re able communicate that early and they see you as ready, then everything else will be much easier.

Agree with D1 completely. You should also be documenting your achievements and how they match your desired promotion level’s performance expectations. Don’t just show you’re meeting your current level, be able to show that you’re meeting the next. Have the documentation ready to either show or just talk about.

I’ve been with my company for 5 years and have never asked for a raise, I’ve accepted annual review we get without question. I’ve now realised I’m getting paid significantly less than the market rate. I’m getting job offers with almost 40% increase. I know my male peers at my company get paid significantly more than me. I love my job and my company but I don’t know how to ask for a raise 🙈 I know I deserve it but don’t know how to ask! Any guidance please ?

Is there a way to bypass the promotion policy of not being able to apply for jobs in 2 or more levels above your current level?

I had hoped it would be easy to rise in ACN but was met with "you can't be promoted 2 levels above", cont'd in comments
