      All right, just sharing my experience in two orgs over 3.5 years. I was a 4 in both. Left retail after 2 years and then was told I was a "high 4" in Video. I never worked toward nor expected a promotion but saw many co-workers not get one, or kept in the "acting" role for over a year.

    Once every year, in April.

      You are eligible for promotion twice per year, but only write performance reviews once per year. At least that's how it worked before I left 3 years ago.

      Edit: a comment below actually says 4x per year... I didn't see anyone get promoted in Q2 or Q4 but it's likely changed.

      Note that performance review is once a year, but promotion cycle is 4x/year.

    Once every quarter up to L6. L7 and above is Q1 and Q3 only. Salary review is once per year in Q1 unless you are promoted - in which case you could feasibly have 2.

    Are you talking about engineering or non-engineering roles? It's two different answers. Engineering is the only part of the company that has standardized promotion tracks.
