Is s4/Hana keeping you all busy or is it across the board? For us, it just seems we’re all over the place.

We have a dedicated O&G practice - hiring industry engineers with MBAs. Sold out and growing rapidly.

Agreed. We are very busy even with the client list evolving. It’s a fairly slow time right now as we transition to the new engagement year but the utilization forecast looks a good so far. Be nice if prices came back some (or a lot).

I think I care too much about having a well known logo in my resume. Any advice on how to prioritize/make the right decision?
