I didn't mind Kirk's promotion from cadet to captain as he saved the Federation.

In the West careers usually progress slowly and steadily upwards, we are used to the idea that it takes time to reach a certain position and that you only lose it if you really mess up. Yet such a system is not meritocratic. Kirk's instant promotion on the other hand is. Best one gets the job, simple as that.
