Check out a company called London Walks - www.walks.com. Professional guides, most walks are two hours, just check the website (there are walks for every conceivable interest), show up at the designated meeting place, pay £9 and off you go. They also have day trips out of London to Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, Blenheim Palace, etc. Well worth it. I go every time I’m in London.

Is it typical to get a year end raise, even if you are not getting promoted? For example, I’ve been at my current rank for one year and am close to next level. My value is higher since I am more experienced but still billed as a senior analyst. Is it reasonable to ask my employer for a raise? My reasoning as follows:
- My work quality has significantly improved since last year
- 90% utilized this year
- Current pay is below market value
- No harm in asking

I work at a firm with ~200 employees and we do not have any diversity. When I reached out to leadership to set goals for DEI next year, they just said there aren’t qualified candidates. Truth is I’ve never seen a single resume from African American/latina racial backgrounds. If they don’t screen them, how do they know they are not qualified.
I’m afraid if retaliation if I keep pushing. Looking for suggestions on what I can do.
