What practice? Strat, maybe. All others, doubt it. A bad rating is easily forgivable. Multiple bad ratings can also be forgiven depending on the situation so being your first year I bet you're 100% okay. Just take the constructive criticism and use it to improve.

I can view chargeability but how can you view the target?

What's the bad review? Also, what group?

A1, I'm in Strat

How bad is the bad review?

How'd you get a bad review?

Nah you're fine if you're a first year

Feeling really stressed by client on my project. I dont know if I can survive without it impacting my health. Is it possible to get a mental health evaluation to assess? Never had issue letting stuff roll off my back but this one is causing sleep loss, stomach issues, and I feel like I want to cry all the time. I do a good job on deliverables, on time and quality work. Seems no matter what, he is nasty. Others say not to take it personal, its just him. But I cant deal. How do I fix this?

Was on the bench for a while (5 months) and just about to get rolled onto a new project in a role I’m not very passionate about and is a lateral move but it’s billable work. I recently got a verbal offer from a smaller consulting company to step into a role that is a huge step forward in my career. I’m going through clearance for my current role and recently learned many are leaving the project to work on other projects so I and one other person will be the only ones left.…
