Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
Will the inability to speak the local language fluently in a country like Germany or Japan definitely impact utilization negatively below manager level?
I work in the IC and, as many of you know, the security related paperwork lead-time between engagements can take months sometimes. Had super low utilization due to constant rotations to....

How much utilization is "too much" utilization?
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Do airline bathrooms average the highest utilization of any public bathrooms? Every time I go in its wall to wall w dudes dropping heat. Ladies is this the same for you?
If you are on an FWA, do you need to meet your FWA utilization hours every week? I.e I am 75% so do I need 30 charge plus whatever admin hours to mercury? I am talking to my people consultant and she seems to think so. In a job that is highly seasonal, how is this possible??

What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
Anyone have any insight on the culture/personality differences between the Northeast and SoCal?

Anyone here with a PhD who moved from a tech role in consulting to a research role in faang or any other big tech firm?
What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising. Also, I’ve heard comp is ok and typically lower than consulting (and WAY lower than the investment teams…) and mostly concentrated among the top dogs. Accurate? Anyone know people who took this path?
Heading into an interview with a current NFT hotshot company and feeling both excited and out of my depth. The isolation of WFH during the pandemic has certainly eroded my confidence and even though I’m certain I can tackle any role with the proper support of peers and upper leadership, I’m struggling with these intros. - How do you convey competence during brief (20min or less) video calls? - In what ways do you feel you’re able to show your personality, humility, and enthusiasm for the role?
As an experienced hire on MD track I find the MC culture/mindset odd. It’s not that deep, doesn’t need to be intense. And the $ isn’t spectacular. I suspect it’s different for analysts/consultants?
