Accenture Strategy just started the same process... So far, only those unstaffed, lower performers have been asked to go. More pros than cons IMHO.

It has merits to a certain extent but ensuring a specialist track is in place, is important to mitigate talent loss.

It's self selecting to an extent. Ppl who struggle are naturally gonna leave on their own. A pretty high proportion of ppl who make it to the "final evaluation" to make it to the next level get promoted

at least at A->C and C-PL levels

How frequently should one expect or advocate for a raise at a small firm? I moved to a new firm (about ten lawyers) about two and a half years ago. After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.
