[ Edited ]
★★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC

What is your current game version number? 1.61.15.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansions: All Game Packs: Dine Out, Parenthood Stuff, Spa Day, Strangerville Packs: My First Pet Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Sim with the Ambitious trait or Lazy trait join the detective career.

After reviewing the game files, the code for Sims with the Ambitious trait to gain career performance quicker is missing:

 

  <U n="career_story_progression">
    <V n="joining" t="enabled">
      <U n="enabled">
        <T n="base_value">1.5</T>
        <L n="multipliers">
          <U>
            <T n="multiplier">1.5</T>
            <L n="tests">
              <L>
                <V t="skill_test">
                  <U n="skill_test">
                    <T n="skill">16699<!--Skill: statistic_Skill_AdultMajor_Charisma--></T>
                    <V n="skill_range" t="interval">
                      <U n="interval">
                        <U n="skill_interval">
                          <T n="lower_bound">3</T>
                        </U>
                      </U>
                    </V>
                  </U>
                </V>
              </L>
            </L>
          </U>
          <U>
            <T n="multiplier">1.5</T>
            <L n="tests">
              <L>
                <V t="skill_test">
                  <U n="skill_test">
                    <T n="skill">16706<!--Skill: statistic_Skill_AdultMajor_Logic--></T>
                    <V n="skill_range" t="interval">
                      <U n="interval">
                        <U n="skill_interval">
                          <T n="lower_bound">3</T>
                        </U>
                      </U>
                    </V>
                  </U>
                </V>
              </L>
            </L>
          </U>
        </L>
      </U>
    </V>

The code should be added to this section:

          <U>
            <T n="multiplier">1.5</T>
            <L n="tests">
              <L>
                <V t="trait">
                  <U n="trait">
                    <L n="whitelist_traits">
                      <T>16823<!--Trait: trait_Ambitious--></T>
                    </L>
                  </U>
                </V>
              </L>
            </L>
          </U>
          <U>
            <T n="multiplier">0.5</T>
            <L n="tests">
              <L>
                <V t="trait">
                  <U n="trait">
                    <L n="whitelist_traits">
                      <T>9599<!--Trait: trait_Lazy--></T>
                    </L>
                  </U>
                </V>
              </L>
            </L>
          </U>

@crinrict The Doctor and Scientist career both work with the Ambitious trait.  I verified this in the code.  The Detective career is the only one that does not work.
