I just got promoted. I also just got a job offer. A job offer at an agency I’ve dreamed at working at for years. No real growth in the promotion, just a fancy title but I’ve only been here a year. 😣

Do NOT worry about being “loyal” to your current agency. They’ll fire you in a heartbeat. Be loyal to YOU (but don’t be a jerk about it—small industry). Congrats!!!

Has an offer to join a smaller but growing firm. Will get a decent raise, but I'm concerned about the lack of delivery capability. Seems like the expectation is they want you to be able to do it all, and they brand and technical breadth is not as established. Looks to me its high risk and the reward is just the raise they offer. Anyone has similar experience can share their experience?

From PwC bowl. I don’t think this is a widespread thing but want to unpack the idea of it. PwC is certainly looking at staff utilization for black employees to make sure they are getting put on jobs but that doesn’t mean better jobs. There are no saved opps for minorities, like wtf. And early promotion is definitely not a thing but could naturally happen when given more opportunity. It is insane to me that someone already privileged would even think of doing this to maintain their privilege.

Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k

There is no reason to take your foot off the gas. Leadership thinks it’s done enough because it put out a video about D&I headed by a Karen. Diversity still means white woman or Indian male. Continue to agitate. Document what your PPMD / leadership/ firm have promised about diversity & what they’ll do to support Black & African American employees. If they put out a 12 month roadmap, make sure you’re there 12 months + 1 day later holding them accountable to what was promised.
