geometry likes to say they are diverse, but they can’t resist hiring white men. If you’re a white man, go ahead, the job is yours.

I was at a WPP agency and the number of 2-level self-promotions they hired was astounding. Either they really have figured out how to flatten out the org, or they figure it’s cheaper to lose business with cheap talent than keep it with expensive talent

Ladies who have been promoted to a manager role, what would you say is the greatest different between it and your time as a consultant/senior consultant?

Q for FAANG + Uber folks in US: is there a policy where once a candidate is rejected, they cannot be considered for any other position for 1 year? I.e. I’d like to just start applying en masse to shoot my shot, but I haven’t built up the network to put in referrals yet, so am I actually hurting myself if I end up being rejected at the screening stage now? We have this policy at my consulting firm, hence the Q.

Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
