Promotions/ratings around late June or early July (I heard they're taking longer this year) and comp in August


How about take a nickel and go back to work? I feel that's what's going to happen with me


I have done tons of PD work and got two five stars and did few proposal etc but I still feel when it comes to money, firms are cheap. That's what happened to me while I was working for industry. Almost loosing hopes.


^ sorry, meant to say 4 rating


Hoping for a 5 but will prolly get a 4.


I have two 5 stars from PD and two 4 stars from client engagements. I think I will get 3


That's what's my counselor thinks


From my experience, at least in my competency, it's 95% based on your utilization. You have to beat your peers in utilization to get 4/5. High utilization will get you a 4. A high utilization plus good reviews/extracurriculars will get you the 5. On the flip side, good reviews/extracurriculars and mediocre to bad utilization will get you a 3.


I got 12.5% last year with a 3


It always depends on rating and firm performance, so I wouldn't expect anything that high this year


When is our round table stuff officially released?

If I have 4 star in last three engagements , what can I expect? People have told me that it's not always the rating its how your practice feels about you

100%. Also heavily depends on BD and firm initiatives you're involved in

Having an advocate (partner, heavy senior manager) in your practice helps a lot. Unfortunately engagements are only a small portion of the review and it is just as much about what you did outside of you engagement that solidifies your rating. If you didn't do much internal, a 3 is almost guaranteed, but if you did a good amount a 4 is possible. Just remember there are people with all 5s on engagements that wind up with 3s and 4s year end.

To build off of that they "recalibrate" ratings. If you get all 5s, or any rating for that matter, they still compare your responsibilities and relative impact against your peers to determine your "objective" rating

You won't see anything close to that this year, think 3-5%

I got a 4 last year and I got 7.5% as a senior and apparently we had a really good year last year

I was promoted 2 years ago with a 5 rating and got 12.5% increase.

Not sure what your rank is but during the round tables I was part of utilization was barely even mentioned I know it's looked at but if it's within target you are fine

Is it common for newly promoted senior to be labeled as associate and do only associate work?

Got promoted in June and was doing senior work for one project. Got staffed to another project recently and director&manager labelled me as associate in trackers. Just wondering if this is normal since I felt like that means I’m not good enough for the senior role 😅


Never heard from my RP but got invited to a promotee/partner lunch. We have a great relationship.

What is the year over year total comp increase you can expect when joining as an Associate at an MM PE firm (Progression from A1 to A2, A2 to SA1)? I know it’s largely based on performance, but would help to understand ranges.

How do consultants present decks they know absolutely nothing about? Like do you just pretend and fake the confidence. I feel like it’s so common for me to present on things I know like 20% about to panels of experts on the subject. Should I just sound smart


Has anyone ever been bullied by their co workers and paras ? I work with a very cliquey staff. I picked the wrong battle and they have been paying me back with all year. I’m actually sick to my stomach when I think about going back next year and it’s not just about Covid.
I have apologized for not staying in my own lane and gone above and beyond to help this teacher with her IEP paperwork.
I’m at a loss.


My partner and I are considering moving states to be closer to his family. We have two years before we can move based on his job, so this question is a little early but it is on my mind. At that time I will have 5 years litigation experience at a mid-sized firm. However, I won't have any connections in the new state. Would it be worth working with a recruiter to find a job, or is it better to just throw my resume out there on my own?

Utilization/ Promotion Question:
Started 2022 off with 5 weeks of bench time. It’s killed my utilization. I’m staffed on a project for the remainder of the year but my utilization is currently at 65%. Using the calculator, assuming 40hrs billed and holidays, my utilization will be around 80%. I’m looking for a promo next summer. How bad will that hurt?


For recruiters or those who have worked with recruiters - do I shoot myself in the foot with the firm if I apply for a position where the recruiter may have already reached out or might be reaching out after my application? I know the recruiter may not get a commission if I have already applied but not sure if a firm would shy away from me as a candidate to avoid a conflict.
