Has anyone in this bowl performed a case study as part of the hiring process for a Project Manager? This role will be closely aligned with the Product team at a start-up. My husband was asked to complete and given 4 scenarios to respond to. He has a great strategy for the content but unsure of the best way to present. The document says “present any way you wish.” My guidance would be a deck sent in PDF. Some of the questions are more about his approach to prioritization & others process design

My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.
