Incompetence

Staff1 -> staff2 is almost guaranteed. Bad sign if that didn't happen.

You’d get fired before you stayed at A1

Staff 1 to staff 2 is not a promotion. It's a progression. Promotion is when you change level, not #. Everyone progresses as a result of time. So all staff 1s will become staff 2s. You just might be a staff 2 on a PIP.

Depends on who you work for and their views of you. Just cause you perform well, if they have a negative view of you that can impact your career

1) unable to perform the simplest tasks 2) unable to learn 3) makes up so many excuses for their incompetence. From what i saw, basically if you cannot even do the job you were hired to do, the end is near

Yeah it's pretty automatic to go from stuff 1 to staff 2 but you will also be put on a PIP if you are having issues

Agreed it's an automatic transition, but if someone is not even ready to be staff 2 they will be put on PIP and coached out or held back at senior promotions. I'm in Deloitte tax and I think falling behind in your first year here might even have a greater impact than at other firms because we don't do the diversified staff group for staff to senior 1 like at EY and we don't hold people back to three years at staff like at pwc. You really only have about three busy seasons to prove yourself before you are up for senior promotions and you work with the same group that whole time.

Some people just need another year to catch on. It's not the end of the world as long as you put in the effort and show improvement

How often are staff 1 or 2 asked to sign a PIP?

Not true EY5. Staff 1 to Staff 2 progression is not automatic. It's a part of the counselor form to ask if they are on track for progression even if it isn't a promotion. Just most people who aren't going to be making that progression are probably activ3ly being fired.

@EY3 how many second year staff 1s do you know personally?

Bad attitude, and poor performance

I’ve never seen a Staff 1 left behind. Staff 1 to Staff 2 is not really a promotion. It’s more of a designation of your years in that rank. If you’re a staff 1 that remained a staff 1 at October 1 its more likely a product of timing as opposed to performance. As an example, I was up a Senior 3 up for promotion to Manager. I didn’t get my CPA passed and became a Senior 4. Did you start at an odd time?

Personally seen 3 people remain at staff 1. All were due to performance. PA just wasn't the right fit for them.

If someone is asking for a help to elect one company out of two or more based on others experience ( In most likelihood Wlb and culture) people in comments are not bothered to respond to the question rather they are more curious to know yoe tech and ctc which is disheartening to see.

Hi! Does anyone know where can I find cool off periods for various companies? I am looking for Dropbox at the moment.

10 open Leadership Supervisor positions.
Almost 30 applicants.

I said that "People come to me about process issues, and I worked with others to better that process for them and the team."
Interviewer feedback denying me the role was that because I did not say "People trust me and came to me about process issues. Which led me to collaborate with others that I have networked with in the past to find solutions." I did not get the job.

Was this Code-Switching nitpick?
