Simple: start performing as a Manager today. Have support from project leadership and others outside of your project (career coach, partner you're mapped to, other leaders), that agree you are performing as a manager. If you are performing as a manager, and leadership agrees, they should support the promotion. If they support the promotion, you'll be promoted.

What does each firms performance review process look like? I’ll kick off - we have individual case reviews after each case and each 6 months we have a formal consensus review process where all seniors in the level above you discuss each candidate and their rating / promotion decision if they are up for promotion. We also have these mini consensus reviews at the 3 months mark as well within these 6 months to discuss off cycle promotions. What do you like / dislike about yours?

Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont

Hi fishes, I am currently a staff 3 at EY GDS and got confirmation on my promotion. I will be a S1 effective from october and i got the exceptional performer rating. But i have 3 YOE with 8 LPA and i received an indirect hint that my hike wont be good. Please let me know your thoughts? How much can i expect in terms (%) increment this year based on the promotion? Is that even dependent on the promotion? And should i look for other opportunities considering the YOE and current package?

Would it be looked down upon by industry if I became an independent contractor? S&O manager with 8 YOE. Unhappy in current role - work is not engaging and passed over for promotion. Have an opportunity to become a subcontractor with 1,200 min. annual hours for next 2 years. Take home pay would be 2X what I make currently, but would need to pay for my own insurance / other work expenses. If I do this, would firms I apply later for (after I figure what I want in life) look at this as a negative?

Is it wrong to not want a promotion? Ive been told I’m on track for one soon but I still have sooo much to learn at this level and I don’t feel ready to move up. I am, in fact, terrified of the next step and the responsibilities that come with it. Has anyone turned down a promotion and regretted it? Been glad about it?

Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
