Company will have performance reviews based on goals set and check on how are you tracking against those goals.
Very sound career progression path, with opportunities to fast track/accelerate progression or try different areas internally
Chaos is a ladder, mid tiers constantly poached by big 4, plenty of opportunities for fast promotion also opportunities for being poached to industry.
Progression is completely tenure-based, and not based on your effort/skills
It takes lots of time and effort.
There is a clear careers guide which illustrates what is expected of people at each level. I am yet to attend a performance appraisal to know how promotions work in practice. I hope appraisals are achievable.
The possibility of promotion is a very realistic opportunity, they expect you to be able to back up your claim for promotion however
Will need to wait and see an annual review. Company provides detailed career development guides to assist with knowing where you are and where you need to be for promotion.
Promotion dependant on performance/timeline.
Skills and competence is key, however office politics is evident and plays a role in whether you get a promotion
