Feeling really nervous about promo bc I work with mostly L4s; probably won't go for it until march or
next sept. Any uplifting stories or advice people care to share?

    Go for it. The worst that could happen is that you get feedback on how to improve for next cycle.

    Is it true that you guys can put in a promotion request by yourself? Can one's management chain influence the decision?

      Yes. No.

      If your manager's opinion on your self nomination is that you should not be promoted and they explicitly say so it might influence the decision. It would also be unheard off for a manager to do so...

    L3 to L4 should be pretty easy. Go for it early and don't get discouraged if you are rejected. Just try again next cycle.
