In your experience, do any agencies foster a culture of mentorship? Meaning mentorship is encouraged, celebrated, and incentivized? So many have mentorship programs that go unused, but I’m curious if there are any agencies that bake it into their culture.

I personally don’t think mentorship programs are all that effective, but I have been lucky to seek out mentors and mentees and it has been rewarding on both sides. And my organization definitely celebrates and recognizes those that do it well.

It’s not tied to the agency but rather the leaders there. I’ve tried to establish a mentoring culture and programs but they all died once I left the agency. 🤷‍♂️

No. And if you put the energy in you just have to enjoy doing it, don’t expect to receive mentorship and also don’t expect the kids you trained to do as much as return a phone call years later. It’s basically up to you and if you get something out of it, go for it.

I'd love to get perspective on interviewing in consulting specifically with Deloitte and also life as a black employee there. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. If anyone is open to a DM conversation I'd appreciate that also. I have an upcoming interview with them. I'm not a new grad would be considered an experienced hire.

Consulting vets, normal? I was lured into consulting and lost benefits due to the challenging transformation program being right up my alley.

A few months later I get involved in spending nights and weekends for 3 weeks making a 60+ page deck. Company wins part of the contract and hires 12 more. Since then I have been ignored by them. No bonus!
