The promotions come around quickly allowing for significant professional growth. This does sometimes mean that social life comes second.
There is a clear career progression within the firm
At the moment I'm satisfied with the position I am in however do believe that there are progression opportunities available for me when I feel ready to put myself up for those roles.
Promotion paths are laid out in general terms for employees with goals and expectations of each level. Provides targets for employees and allows them to grow as an individual not just be a better worker.
It is very competitive to get promotions at our company
My company has quite a structured pathway for the first 2 years which is nice and I appreciate. Beyond that I think the opportunity for growth within the company and outside (if I left) are quite good.
Annual goal setting
I haven't completed the grad program yet so I wouldn't know yet.
Changing the graduate program to no longer include a promotion to senior con gives me no sense of career progression.
Have to go beyond expectations for your role, show initiative, think about others rather than just yourself.
There is a set promotion ladder, not entirely clear how to move up and it can depend on the person. From what I have seen, some people get the first promotion a year in, can take others up to 3 years. Being a national team it may impact who goes up as well.
The career promotion opportunities at a big 4 are fantastic as you are constantly moving through the cycle looking to get promoted. Getting promoted involves hitting metrics and producing quality work on all engagements as well as upskilling yourself and contributing additional value to the firm.
Up to the upper management level (Manger and onwards) it is just a matter of time and experience. I think beyond upper management is more about the individual's merit and capabilities.
Seems relatively easy to progress up until assistant manager
