    I think a lot of people voted Humble thinking which one would they promote.

    I like those humble, kind, not political coworkers! More money for rest of us when we fight to get promoted and more money.

      We are talking about TC, money, more money as in why I go to work. Companies shitty or not as long as they pay I will keep showing.

    OP
    Why is there such a disconnect between who WE would promote as managers vs those who ARE promoted by our Senior Leaders???

      I think it is obvious. Consider those promoted are actually doing exactly what Seniors Leaders need and when versus those you would promote are perhaps busy doing things not of any significance to leadership.

      Because your leaders don't care about you. 🤷‍♂️

      Because a lot of “leaders” at some companies are there only because they bullshitted and bullied their way to the top, not because they are particularly competent. They run teams and products into the ground, spin their time as a success on their resume, and move on to bigger and better places to fuck over. Actual competent people are a threat to them. They’d never give them any serious consideration for promotions.

    The humble person may or may not get promoted. For sure the person who is more outgoing will be noticed and considered come promotion time

      You can fool the right the people (managers) all the time to get a promotion

    • Oracle alwzangry
      The number of levels are meant to make the younger ones believe they're promoted. Managers are not the ones getting fooled there.

      First line managers are often made up positions with no real responsibility

      Their responsibility is to keep the line from bothering the next line. It's never really to lead or get hands-on if the line is ineffective.

    I actually think that it is a big misconception that extroverts perform better as leaders. At least based on the book good to great, it was mainly humble introverts that created better companies. If I understood the book correctly. You dont want people that put themselves first and instead the ones that generally put company first in higher positions.

    I think confidence is necessary to get promoted at Apple. If you aren’t able to stand your ground when a VP disagrees with you in a meeting, that is considered a liability for your whole team.

    But confidence and arrogance are different. If people on other teams dislike working with you, it will sink your career growth like cement shoes.

    Don’t work at Pandora where you need to deny promo (because of some limitation) despite being ready for promo.
