The time spent on each career stage is not pre-determined, it is up to you how you take on your career. Performance is the key element that determines promotion, but normally, an ADL employee spends about two to three years at each career level.

Each career step reflects different emphasis on what type of work is performed. As a Business Analyst, you spend the majority of your time performing analytical casework, whereas management and business development are tasks that take up most of a Partner's time.
