Quit layoffs through all areas in PI. Even spread across all levels. If you've met utilization and sales goals, you don't need to worry.


Surgical firings - combination of mediocre ratings, low utilization, specialization in skills that are not strategic, or people that refuse to travel (waiting on bench for a local project)

I know of three people personally who all happened to be Senior Managers, but EY1 is right--they all had poor util and sales and just weren't our strongest anyway. They would have been let go anyway, if not this year, then the next probably.

Well, I am a staff from Cyber practice.. CTM on the whole is doing pretty bad and my until is 50.. So was just worried. (New hire started 7 months ago)

In my opinion (so who knows whether it's close to accurate), it's easier to keep on a staff and justify that they haven't had as much control over util

Have gone on a few interviews and been asked what agencies I’ve consulted at. I’ve always been told that I can’t tell agency names even internally within the company. Some interviewers seem adamant...
