    Hi guys,

    Is it correct to say "He is on upper designation than my manager"?

    No. I have no idea what you are trying to say.

    No, I don't know what you are trying to say. Is 'he' and 'my manager' the same person?

    No if I want to tell someone about somebody's designation like there is a person who is senior to my manager so can I say "That person is on upper designation than my manager".

    No, the underlined part is not correct.

    He is senior to my manager.
    He has a higher position than my manager does.

    Re: Designation

    He is at a higher level than my manager.

    He is higher ranking than my manager.

    He is at a higher position than my manager.

    He is more senior than my manager.

    I don't like the "higher level" ones. That could be interpreted as being more competent. I think 'position' is better.
