I'm thinking you should be fine given that you are a 1st year..most firms won't fire any 1st years for the fear of screwing up campus relations

How often do you talk to RM? You SM? When I was beached I was checking in on a weekly basis. Also make sure your counselor knows and tell your RM you are willing to work on anything

You should be fine. Just make sure that the leaders sponsoring those initiatives can work with your counselor to vouch for you come ratings season

Yep @D1 but also a good RM should be in touch. Gotta sell yourself too!

You're fine. Have a conversation with your counselor soon

If you're a 1st year it means you were hired partially through the year (most likely july or sept start date). Utilization means literally nothing when you've only been here 6 months.

Yeah heard from multiple sources mid year hires are safe wrt utilization
