Would you submit a grievance in this situation - promoted to SM 9 years ago, since them receiving SA ( in the old system) and constantly bringing revenue since PA introduced. In the past year....

I think you don’t have a sponsor..


You are probably maxed out at your range


Idk then bud - I don’t know what goes on around here anymore.


Good luck to you.


How about flat out asking what you need to do to get promoted? Who about going exec principal route


Agree that you’ve not got (the right) sponsor and/or CC. You need to have the direct conversation. “I’ve been at this level for 9yrs. I’m valued or I’d have been let go by now. Where next? You know this is not a resting level - so I’m either moving up or I will move myself on."


Oh - have the L6/L5 conversation.....


In the past year I brought over $12M revenue and yet it’s not enough to get my raise up, nor be promoted

Depends what your job is as an SM $12MM would be a lot in some groups but not if you are in a sales role or trying to make MD in CDO where they all sell big outsourcing deals. I don’t know what group you are in but something sounds off.

Not in sales. When I joined the project over a year ago it was undersold and the senior consultant was supposed to run it. I got a role of a PM, fixed client relationship and sold additional work. Not in CDO, but C&M

Feeling disappointed and demotivated

Yes I’m A2 but the question is why is bonus so low or why not to get promoted to L5 - since there are no performance issues. Oh well time to work on plan B

Op, what service line? Maybe jumping ship will get you some cash.

Are you interested in moving ?

Thank you all. Yes I also think I don’t have the right CC who is not willing to stick their neck for me not the sponsor. I’m in the consulting line of business, working mostly on big implementation projects. Jumping ship is not impossible but not desirable at this point of time due to personal reasons however plan B is in the works. I asked what else can I do but there was no clear answer just a director level generic mambo jumbo that didn’t really apply to me. I decided to reach out to other MDs and see it from their point of view and will take an action. Anyway thank you all for the advice. Appreciated.

What OU ?
