How much time should you wait before you can ask for a promotion in GE Digital? And how should you ask it? Any clues/tips?

    • Direct Promotion within role ie: from "Sr" to "Staff" (both LP) can happen. Also salary bump without title change is a better route (unless you really care about the title).

      Your manager can work with HR to give you an "off cycle" raise anytime, but you need to be a legitimate top performer, not only within your team but within your VP organization.

      What about PB to LPB?

      I don’t know where this rumor about not being able to jump from one band to another came from but you can do it. That’s how promotions work. I did it many times. Each band is divided into two titles and you can only get promoted one title at a time. Each promo comes with some raise. If you get promoted from staff to sr staff then that’s an LPB to SPB jump. Best time to get promo is during regular annual cycle because then they decide budgets to allocate for raises. Mid cycle is worse because it’s harder for management to dig up the money mid year

      Aviation didnt hand people band promotions. They would post the position and you would have to go through the interview process to get it. Most times you were the lead candidate and really had to f up to not get it though.

      understood this is flame bait but i still have to say that GE will be a success story that sets an example for refocusing a sprawling global business. The company is recovering and growing
