2015

"I think that career progression at the firm is well structured and clearly set out."
Junior Consultant, London
"Career progression is quite well defined for the first few years; after which it becomes more dependent on performance and what people want to do. People's work is varied, so job titles don't always really describe what people actually do."
Junior Consultant, Auckland
"Promotion is done on a performance based system. However, for graduates there is a reasonably structured promotion schedule for the first few years which is largely time-based."
Junior Consultant, London
"I believe that there is steady career progression for the first three or four years."
Consultant, London
"As moving up the ranks is time-based as well as merit-based, even if you are doing work above your grade you may not be promoted for at least six months. Promotions are not ad hoc, and there are only two rounds of promotion a year."
Consultant, London
"Promotions seem fairly fixed and follow a standard progression for the first few years. I don't have any experience beyond that so I can't comment."
Consultant, London
"Being a small company, I find that you can move through the ranks quite easily as you gain more skills and experience."
Junior Consultant, London
"There is a well-defined promotion path with it taking about two-three years to move up each grade."
Junior Consultant, London
"I think that the promotion opportunities are fairly regular."
Consultant, London

2014

"The speed of promotion is largely restricted for the first several years - this is often unrelated to responsibility."
Entry level, London
"There's a well structured career progression and regular progress reviews. For the junior grades, the career progression is largely based on time at the company, but beyond this progression appears meritocratic."
Midlevel, London
"It is quite a set path for graduates over three years, and promotions are not based to performance. This is good in some ways, but not always so good for those who may be a little more ambitious. The job title is quite all encompassing though, as you do get the chance to excel down a path of your choice."
Graduate, London
"At first there's a reasonably well-defined promotion path for new graduate joiners. Don't expect to deviate from this for at least a few years. Promotion decisions seem to be well considered, a reflection of the fact that CHP tries to focus on what is best for each employee."
Entry level, London
"Provided you show progress and hit targets and go beyond at each grade then seems likely that you will be promoted. Graduates join as junior consultants. Experienced joiners may join directly as consultants or senior consultants."
Graduate, London

2013

"Most managers joined at the bottom and worked their way up."
Graduate, London
"Some people seem to move up far faster than others, but I don't see this as unfair in individual cases."
Graduate, London
"For the first two years promotions happen every six months. After this promotion reviews are once a year."
Graduate, London
"There is a well-defined career trajectory."
Midlevel, London
"Doing your job well will increase chances of promotion. There seems to be a high manager to consultant ratio - perhaps leading to lower (and slower) chances of promotion to a manager level in the future."
Entry level, London
"There are great opportunities for promotion at the company but due to the depth of our work, a lot of experience is needed in order to rise up the ranks. You really need to learn your craft. However it couldn't be a better place to work for a young graduate and promotions are meritocratic in nature."
Entry level, London
"Promotions occur fairly regularly, but more importantly the small size of the company means you are given early opportunities for real responsibility."
Graduate, London
