What makes you a prime candidate for promotion?

What are the most important things the management takes into account when they make the decision about promoting someone to a higher position?
Everybody knows it’s not knowledge and a good work ethic

I've completely given up on "promotion" within. The only way you'll realistically get promoted is to update your resume and apply. The bu-----t management excuses stop when you apply and get your promotion for yourself. THAT is the only way. OR...... Here is another perspective..... If you DON'T want a promotion, then work 80%. Take 1 day off per week, work from home and just check your email and teams 3x a day for 10 minutes. Leave your personal zoom on and muted and no camera and have up the MS email sh-t and other productive stuff. VOILA... YOu have your homemade promotion. YOu only work 4 out of 5 days of the week. Enjoy your free "learning day". Go to the gym, f-your wife or hot gf all day if you want. YOu're welcome!

yep...for your new people..that's a fact. Falling market means loss of inconsequential jobs at FIDO. It's happened many times and this is a biggie with no real end in sight so be prepared.

@5xpo+1h8U1myQ that is a fact. Not sure what SnP level the budget was set at but my guess is we are 20+% below the budget.? If there is not a V shaped recovery this fall it could get ugly. (The experts don't see a quick market recovery)

if the stock market keeps tanking, you need to worry about keeping your job, not a promotion.

  1. You have low IQ, hierarchical boss. You kiss a-s and treat their every d-mb idea as pure genius and make them feel smart and wanted.
  2. Your boss is smart and egalitarian. You should up, get the work done and have a good attitude.

Only 30% of bosses go under 2

What it takes
being White or Indian man is the primary criteria to get to SVP and above. aggressive behavior is a plus.

From my years of experience there were a few occasions where knowledge/hard work were a factor, rare instances, and instances that just could not be ignored: achievement of a CFA or actually producing a systemic process that enhanced the organization.

But from what I witnessed firsthand ~95% of the time what made people successful was their ability to regurgitate the corporate propaganda with a straight face. It's a sales pitch and whoever can come across as the most sincere fido cheerleader is looked at as a well disposed employee.

  • the proof is there by just looking at those that have 'succeeded' they are mostly b.s. artists that just have the knack to 'sincerely' sell the story.
