Which promotion system is better - FB peer review or MSFT suck up your manager?

Lots of complain in MSFT channel of how our promotion system sucks. Basically make your manager happy is #1. Impact and whatever shit is #2.

But is it that bad? Would you rather have FB style 'peer review' and play politics with everyone in the annual hunger games?

Also curious to know how promotion is like in other places. Google? Amazon? Snap? Airbnb?

    Amazon clearly wins here! Managers get promoted for promoting their employees!

      It is very similar at Carta. It shows how good the manager is at creating capacity for him/her and others.

      How do you know working for Microsoft? Have you been at Amazon too? I heard from a few friend in cloud support based in Ireland they are very happy with their jobs and their managers.

      Promotions are indicative of one’s growth as well as increased scope and complexity of their role on the team. Both of which are directly attributable to the success of the team and its manager. Why would anybody want to work for a manager who doesn’t know how and never promoted their employees, especially into senior and principal levels?

    FB isn’t peer review lol. It’s review by metrics.

    2nd option above is mandatory either way, since your manager brings the promotion discussion at first place itself. 1st option is just a overhead and painful.
