BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it?

They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.

Deloitte ARAS vs. EY FAAS. Does anyone think there's any real difference between the two?

I guess this may be more office specific (dependent on projects each office gets) than anything else? Also, does anyone know if Deloitte or EY expects people to be back in office most of the time anytime soon? Would prefer WFH..
