"I feel that it is easy to get to senior associate from associate. It becomes harder from manager upwards as it requires managers to leave in general, so there can be a feeling that business analysts get 'stuck' at senior associate level for a while."

"It is a company of meritocracy, and some people are promoted very quickly."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Promotions are assessed twice annually, with much more of a focus at the end of the year. In order to be promoted, you need a strong portfolio of work that has taken place over at least six months prior to the promotion. You also need to be at or near the top of your peer group because our performance ratings are graded to a curve."
Graduate, Nottingham
"I am still very new, but many people have moved up and had promotions in less than two years from joining."
Graduate, Nottingham
"You will be promoted through the lower ranks as soon as you're deemed capable - there seems to be very little politicking on the matter, and the appraisal of individual capability is accurate."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Promotions happen twice a year and are based on communication; I think it can sometimes be difficult to determine the available positions and to move around within your first two years."
