Don’t know what “agency culture” means to you. So, not sure

Hmm I’d say many positive corporate values, like civility, work/life balance, rewarding good work aren’t tied to white culture. I’d also say I’m not sure how to define white culture.

Yes! agency culture is basically white culture. Just look at leadership and the people that gets promoted faster than usual or the people that gets better opportunities and treatment.

It's a white bronado of we're the norm plus we drink a lot and treat women like objects, even in meetings. The culture is toxic and breeds very tone deaf ad strategies. None of these places want to really change. Same for digital shops and startups, they're even worse.

Considering making a lateral move as a biglaw (Kirkland/Sidley/Cleary/Paul Weiss type firm) mid level litigation associate in a major market to a similar firm in the same market. I don’t dislike my current firm or work, have very strong reviews, and good relationships with some key partners. Main motivation for lateraling is for potential of a significant signing bonus given the current landscape, and general uncertainty about future at my current firm. Would appreciate any advice/insights.
