If we are speaking about the same person (likely so), I was in her TD. Yes while her PL fought hard for her (as many PLs do), what stood out were (based on my foggy memory):

1. Her top few achievements in both Projects (with concrete examples) - things you would not expect A/SA to do
2. Strong CAI from both Projects and Project Managers (both were in the TD)
3. Shown huge potential to be performing as a L9 (eg, created tools to help the project, led teams of As, SAs and Cs, led triages from both Projects with little supervision, able to manage the client well, picked up new knowledge very quickly, etc.)

Do note in TDs, itís really only ď5 minutes of fameĒ for 6/12 months worth of work (tbh still not a huge fan of this process) - but just imagine how the PL and other PLs managed to convince her Pod Lead to give her that promotion slot in such a short time despite a hard year. Many of us could tell that she was definitely a high potential even without working directly with her. It was unfortunate for the firm that she left even after getting the promotion but from the timeline of events, it did not seem preventable. Itís really very difficult to know when someone will resign (and they could even be your ďwork bffĒ). you will learn/see this more often as you climb the corporate ladder since there are definitely great opportunities (but not necessarily great bosses) outside of ACN.
Hi, would like to know of any example of top achievements that a SA/A will not typically do?

I feel like the role and skillset I have in my project in ACN (NBS) is very generic and can be done by a driven intern/fresh grad, if given some time to learn the functional/business specific scenarios for the project. It seems like a waste as I have no opportunity to learn new skills within the project (e.g. Technical skills such as coding/cloud/analytics). I do try to find ways to improve my/my teams workflow through sql/python scripts/powerquery/trying to learn VBA, but those skills are very high level and mostly used for scripting/data search/data cleaning.


On another note, I have seen people in the project also create guides (e.g. A/SA: Guide for how to generate data for a key E2E tesying areas) and tools (AM: automated interface data creation) but don't see them getting promoted. What could be the reasons why someone could be selected or passed over for promotion during TD?

To justify, I was part of the project and what I know is that her PL is her direct team manager who recommended her to WD bank project. She has been wanting to get out of the project FYI. Her PL who are friends with the manager in the other project probably put in good words for her & recommended her for promotion (which is why she got early promotion from A to SA and at the same time from SA to CL9). Friends will help one another to achieve the same objective.

Furthermore, triage/ UAT session there was a lot of help received from the technical manager (this is the legend that had helped out with any technical issues and has been in the project from the start but left ACN aldy, different person from her PL) and other Solution Architects. While it is true that she stayed back very often at work during her time with BT, the modules she was placed in-charged with have issues. And FYI she didnít lead Consultant level, she only led interns & analyst/SAs (new joiner to the project thus no project knowledge). The macro she created did not test for all the use cases and failed at some of the use case but its fine as long as those use cases was omitted when using. Her modules that she were ďin-chargedĒ in has issues even when some of the PHIs has gone live. Poor souls in the project have to clean up part of the mess that was left by her now that sheís gone too after she took the promotion. Her stay in WD project is estimated to be around 6 months before promotion and 2 months later she left the company (total 8 mths) for whatever reason. Btw did I mention that her PL who recommended her for promotion will be getting out of BT to another project?

Promotions happened, left the project/ACN and other people have to clean up their mess. Things are not always as they seem. End of day want promotion just por management & if u female confirm got advantage
Donít agree that female have advantage because been through that and done a lot and all. But agree with what youíve shared on the lady, indeed her PL (not her original PL, she changed PL) and this PL happened to be her team manager. Itís extremely obvious for those on the team that the PL took favour for her. She tries her best at work but come on everybody does too. She arenít that great, Iíve known other SA who was struggling two projects at the same time and even before that A who were in dual workstreams and leading it themselves. So her so called achievements arenít just sorely her. Still donít believe itís justifiable for two fast tracks consecutively. And itís funny how a project will promote someone who would leave the project or made it so known that sheís been wanting to leave the project. Itís shocking to hear the manager got her another project when he only shares with others that he knows no projects

You misunderstood - there is nothing for anyone to gain in spewing BS on such a forum when all I am trying to do is help most people here as most comments are likely from the more junior resources based on my personal inference. What I meant is that I myself did a lot of meeting minutes during my intern days (not necessarily in ACN), which is very typical of most firms I have worked in. The point I am making here is that the lowest ranked person is a meeting tends to be the minutes taker, so even an AD can be the one taking minutes if the call involves only MDs, which is something I had experienced myself before in person since I was just a SME and was not charging to the BD WBS.

If you have shown leadership skills in your own rights, client facing achievements, ďPlus OnesĒ and have certifications (certain Pod Leads are particular on this), it is likely one will get promoted when the MAL is ready. However, these few years the budget (hence slots) is limited so it comes down to the finer details.

Do also note that there is two additional layers of moderation - 1) Project Senior Leadership (eg MDs) and 2) Pod Leads. Unfortunately, different Pods have varying slots due to the relative financial performance of the Pods which are outside of L11-L7 control since sales are typically managed by L6 and above.
