I’m trying! I went to a lot of beaches and tried a lot of food. I’ve been lucky every project i have has given me enough utilization that 4-6 weeks of bench time between each one didn’t sent me

Damn. Haven’t gotten more than 2 weeks between projects this year yet. Wrapping one in 2 weeks and then immediately start not the next one through October b

Umm same. I went 18 months without hitting the bench for more than 2 hours and burnt out spectacularly.

I don’t understand how you do that as utilization is based on the number of days you are billable. Am I missing something here? Would love to do the same

Oh lucky you it is day based for us
