Yep. It's actually a thing. Engagement lowers as you start making the mental exit. Do everything you can to stay focused so that you leave on a high note with strong performance and good relationships. :-)

I’m a Merrill Advisor based in the east coast, HCOL area and I graduated from our development program and joined a team making $90k plus paid on whatever I bring in. I’m interviewing for a private banker role at another firm where the base is $165k plus “discretionary” bonuses based on what I bring in. You would jump ship right?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
