Got a rating of 2 in my first year at the firm. Should I be concerned about getting fired?

Yep we handed a bunch of 2s this year! Get decent numbers on your utilization next year and you'll be fine.

Generic feedback is not going to help you. Ask your counselor where you screwed up. Utilization is just one of the metrics. All else remaining good or great, we did not bring the rating down to a 2 because of utilization alone. Work with your counselor and make sure you are doing everything you need to to get ahead of it. Get support from senior managers and partners if possible so they can vouch for you and you are not depending only on your counselor should you need rescuing.

2s are being "looked at" as part of the broader firm "transition"

Agree w E5, something drastically wrong to get a 2. Noticeably not keeping up with peer group. Not just utilization...

Probably. You should have started looking already yesterday .. Lol

Yea

Bad year so more 2s. What was your utilization?

I’ve been on the bench with J1 for about 3 months. I was worried that because I couldn’t find another project, I would get laid off so I found J2, which pays more, is very meeting heavy, but I really like. I’ve kept J1 because I’m still on the bench doing absolutely nothing and getting paid. Thinking about looking for a role on a project with J1 that’s not along my career path but will allow for me to do work with no calls so that I can manage both jobs. Does anyone have experience or advice?

Was laid off in Sept. Unfortunately we will be seeing many more coming. It's what happens in a recession. Unfortunately I now also have my age against me. Not in a mentally good place at the moment.

Found out that a peer was fired three weeks into the job because he used login credentials from previous employer to third party subscription to do market research. Previous employer hadn’t turned off his login credentials and don’t track because it’s a massive organization. Kinda harsh IMHO
