What he/she said. MDs have utilization targets, if they don't staff enough do their Consulting / Strategy etc employees, it looks like they didn't sell enough work.

That being said, right time right place still applies. If you find the right leadership and have the right skill set, some make an exception, but it's a pain of a process

So the best way to do non strat projects is to transfer groups?

If you're sure about leaving Strategy then yes. Otherwise you can get lucky (persuasive) and get on one or two. But overall they'll keep trying to put you on Strat until you're no longer aligned to it

If you're an analyst tfs sent can email several weeks ago saying strat analysts can be staffed on short term MC or digital projects.

A1 is not in Strat so I apologize for the misinformation^ my knowledge comes as a MC Analyst trying to get staffed on a Strat project

Yes, absolutely. The MC/TC partner will make a case for you and then you can code it as a mixed project. Probably can't do too many of these in a row, however for the right project- with the right people - it can make sense.
