Please tell us about promotion possibilities and fill us in on what it takes to move up the ranks.

2 years as graduate then not sure after that.
Graduate, Sydney
Fairly standard throughout the cohort, dependent on performance and no current hierarchy - which is good.
Graduate, Sydney
promotions can be obtained after relevant experience and skills are acquired
Graduate, Newcastle
If you perform well, you get promoted.
Graduate, Canberra
Promotions happen quite frequently, and as long as you have the right balance of expertise and social skills, they seem to be happy to do so. There seems like there's a preference for lateral hires though to fill a fair few positions rather than heavily fostering talent for promotion.
Graduate, Canberra
Performance is key
Graduate, Sydney
Depends on the person and how much effort they put in
Midlevel, Sydney
Promotion at junior level is fairly prescribed and not much room to outperform and progress faster.
Graduate, Sydney
Essentially to get a promotion you need to be fulfilling the roles of that level above
Graduate, Adelaide
Promotion opportunities are well structured and staff appear to be well supported when applying for promotions
Graduate, Adelaide
Promotion possibilities appear typically accessible and a natural progression path exists.

The company sets out expectations, so you know what skills you need to have to gain a promotion.

Unaware of promotion possibilities.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very easy if you work for it, there are many opportunities.
Graduate, Adelaide
Promotions typically occur once a year and promotion candidates must adhere to being at the 'next' level stage of the company Professional framework. The framework items include: technical capability, business acumen, global acumen, whole leadership and relationships.
Graduate, Perth
In order to be eligible for promotion one must first create a business case for why they believe they deserve it, this include samples of work done, other firm activities, and feedback from managers, etc.
Graduate, Perth
Promotion based on business case that must be provided and argued - this is generally limited by tenure but not necessarily guaranteed by tenure.
Graduate, Sydney
While it is challenging to be promoted (this is due to the high calibre of staff in PwC), it is completely achievable with a strong work ethic and good relationships.
Graduate, Brisbane
Can move from consultant to partner.
Graduate, Brisbane
Based on hearsay I believe it is easy to move up to Senior Consultant but then becomes difficult to make Manager and positions above
Graduate, Sydney
There are numerous promotion opportunities which are based on merit and performance. To be considered for a promotion, you basically have to be performing at the level you want to reach i.e. a junior needs to demonstrate senior qualities to be considered for a promotion. You also have to have managers/ partners who support your promotion request and can 'vouch' for you.
Graduate, Sydney
It seems, through observing the team members on my jobs, that progression is very accessible and you just have to work for it and set targets.
Graduate, Sydney
It takes a while to move up to Senior Consultant. You have to be very high achieving.
