Fact or fiction? Google and other big tech firms don’t see a difference between jnr Manager (/EM/Project Leader) and snr Associate (/Consultant) so don’t wait for a promotion before applying.

You will be slotted based on your interview performance. Unreasonable to think that your current title will make no difference at all. But in the end its minimal.

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?

How do you guys think about performance reviews? Try to get the best score you possibly can? Scrape by with doing the minimum while solving for sustainable hours, and then being OK with just an average rating / promotion timeline? Focus on lots of self-promotion? I know I could be better at this job if I put more time and effort into it - but is it worth it? The things I’m getting reviewed on seem rather nitpicky and don’t impact team efficiency or client outcomes so I’m struggling to care.
