Pretty sure it is rolling, same as ours, same as Bain. Seems silly to have friction around promo windows when hiring is yearround.

EM is a role change not a promotion, and it happens when a team believes you are ready and is willing to support you and take the chance on your first time. AP is a twice yearly election. Partner is an annual election.

BCG1 - difference between us I think scale of election (hence needing set process vs rolling), i.e., Partner is a firm-wide election (equivalent to your MD).

OP - BAs don’t get promoted to associate. They get designated EM when they are ready (3/4 years).

Thank you!

I currently work at a big start up and made a lateral move to another team a few months ago with five years experience. Since then , I’ve created a whole new service line and took over many of my managers duties. As I took a paycut to join this team - I’m pushing for a raise and title change. Is this reasonable?

Are qualifications/certifications (scrum, lean six sigma, BCS BA, Prince 2) seriously considered when applying for new roles,pay increase and promotion? In other words is it worth the time to attain these? Obviously I understand experinace is most important but just wondered if certifications help with advancement in roles, pay,promotions etc

After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?

I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
