With mid year reviews coming up in Jan I'm interested in people's experience making the case for a promotion. The written feedback I have received has rated me well above expectations on engagements, I've had informal feedback to the same affect and was bluntly told this week I'm at the wrong level for my work quality. I've also been fortunate to have been involved in two engagements that were published as research/thought leadership pieces.
This is my first review beyond an informal process when my probation ended. I'm worried that they'll say something like yes you've done well so we will promote you 1 week early - instead of 4 months earlier (as in straight after reviews).
