"This is possibly a slightly weaker area. The opportunities to be promoted are there but everyone loves it here so much that the gaps don't open up very often as no one wants to leave! This means that the structure stays similar but there are still opportunities, particularly if you prove yourself."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"There are reviews every nine months where your career path is discussed. People can become managers very quickly if they choose to but it is also possible to be very valuable to the company (and have that reflected in your pay) without becoming a manager."
Entry level, Enfield, North London
"There are no strictly defined ranks. The salary is on a curve and ideas are treated equally irrespective of 'role'."
Graduate, Coventry
"Managers are picked on technical expertise more than anything else. We don't have 'promotion' in a typical sense and it's more that people choose to take on different work, depending on what they want to do."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"Within the technical line, you can move to various roles at your request."
Experienced, Enfield, North London
"I feel that this depends a lot on your team within the company. Some teams have a lot of room for advancement, while others do not. In some teams, you can mentor an intern after one year and become a manager (of a small team) within four. In others, the team is more complex and you can't mentor an intern for two or three years and it might take six or seven to become a manager (of a small team)."
Graduate, London
"It's fairly easy. Managers are happy to listen to your wishes and will tailor your development to progress your career in the direction you wish to go. It is easy to move around the company if you would like to try out a different area."
Graduate, Enfield
"The company does not have a rigid structure, which enables you to move into roles that interest you without much formal process. If you want to be a manager, ask. They'll tell you what you need to do and, once you've done that, you'll find yourself with your first managee. This does mean that promotion is a very loose term though."
Graduate, Enfield
"There aren't too many ranks to climb but pay is based on contribution, not just rank, so this isn't too important."
Graduate, Edinburgh
