If you want to grow up, then, first thing first. Choose the right company. This is important because if the company is not good, then all your efforts would be to no avail. Select a company which provides employee benefits and ensures you that you and your efforts will be cared for.

Maintain a good rapport with your team mates. Be humane in your approach. Good manners, good communication skills and a quality to empathize with your colleagues help you in the long run.
Be sure that your performance is being evaluated. It will be beneficial to you in the long run. If you achieved the targets and are being overlooked by the HR people for some reason or other, tell them about it. It’s your legal right.
Try and be an all rounder. If the company needs help in other department, then try to assist them in their problems if you can. This will accentuate your value in the company and the HR team may offer you some kind of appraisal or the other.
Maintain good relationship with your boss as well as your juniors. The reason being if you have a good rapport with your superior, you can look forward to his help when in need.
