RE: held back because of race...not always

I worked for a major oil company most of my career. They hired mostly fresh out of college engineers, geologists, geophysicists etc. The company liked to mold people into the company way. Candidates interviewed had to graduate in the top 10% of their class. We hired many black engineers. Some made it into management as did some women. Everyone was force ranked every year. The bottom 15% of each grade were put on probation at 6 months. The people that couldn't claw their way up were let go. The next year they hired a new batch. The key was NOT to get promoted too quickly. You might not be able to breath the atmosphere at the top. I always felt like it was a horse race.
