It's a good lesson in trusting your gut and taking responsibility. Just go with it but if your gut feeling needs another opinion, reach out to friends, past colleagues or recruit someone from LinkedIn to share feedback. This has worked for me.

Boston Consulting Group Performance review question: it’s potential promotion season for me and I just learned of one negative case feedback (a 3/5 with some negative comments)—my first ever in ~4years. Other than that I have 6 1s/outstanding (including from well respected MDPs) and 2 2s/very strong. Is one negative feedback enough to block a promotion? Thanks in advance for any perspective!

Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.
