How does your firm calculate utilization? My firm’s billable requirement is 1850, but our utilization percentage is calculated based on 40 hours billed per week (2080/year). Pro bono work counts towards billable requirement , but isn’t included in our utilization numbers. This seems out of sorts… Yearly requirement is fine, but it just feels like the numbers don’t match up. I don’t feel like my utilization expectations/work are being accurately accounted for.
Applied to Booz Allen. Interview and sec pre screen went well. I’ve reach out to recruiters a few times in two weeks and they say ‘we’re waiting for final approval from team to proceed’. Normal?

This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.

I feel like my skill set is being under utilized. 10-20% of the work I do is predictive modeling / data viz & the rest is correcting minutes, powerpoints, and other BS. Has anyone else been here?
Change my mind: PLA leadership does not care about the PLA employees. I have more than 90% utilization for this year and at the end have received a paltry 3.75% comp raise. Where is all the money that the firm made this year going to? I will not be surprised if all the MDs have consumed most of the profits and have left peanuts for the employees. Where is the transparency in the comp numbers that we asked for? We have just received lip service in return to these questions.

I received an offer from a 40+ attorney firm on Friday. Mostly partners, only 4 assocs. It came directly from the mp on video call. There appear to be no HR Person. MP seems like a cool guy. Really liked the 5-6 partners I met. Seem really nicer but most were newer only like 1-2 years at the time and lower level who mostly help out on other partners’ matters. I was visibly excited about offer. Just learned that it’s actually quite a toxic workplace. How/What do I now say when I reject offer?
