Or 出世する / 出世させる

These are all intransitive, so passive forms 昇進/昇格/出世される work as passive of adversity.

I'm not usually the guy to post the funny or the interessant things but,

社長にゴマをして(ご機嫌をとって)、出世します

Learned that some time ago in my books, if you want to talk about "butter up someone to get a promotion for example", could be useful to you someday.

ゴマをすって;)
(する is a godan verb 擂る "to grind", not an irregular verb する "to do", in ゴマをする.)

It's understandable since 擂る is 常用外 and usually written in hiragana. The noun form is ゴマすり(ゴマをすること or ゴマをする人), which is also commonly used, shows that it's not する "to do", though.;)
Incidentally, these two する have different pitch accents. The accent is on the first syllable in 擂る (type1 /す]る/), whereas する "to do" is flat (type0 /する=/).
