How do promotions work at your company? Do you have 1 on 1s every once in awhile with your manager and discuss your plan forward? Do you have a GOT style situation where politics are just out of control?

I would assume managers say “x, x and x are what you need to be promoted” but I could be wrong! Thanks everyone :)

    Day 1: Pee around your desk to establish territory.
    Day 2: Pee around all desks at your aisle to widen said territory.
    Day 3: Pee at Manager's desk / office to make your intentions clear.
    Day 4: Pee all across the office floor at every corner to "show power"!!
    Day 5: Declare Unanimous Supremacy by promoting self to desired title, celebrate by peeing in the w/c.

    Profit by exerting tyrannical influence on the team based of the newly gained title.

  • Promotions work like this, you did something that directly impacts and increases revenue, that something can only be attributed to you. You show power, influence, and have respect. Bingo, promoted AF.
