Now that i think of it, 4/15 through 6/30 does not impact year end

someone told me for us they pull the report again at year end but they might've just been trying to provide incentive to give a shit

Its not counted

Nope. Both May and June

Doesn't really provide much incentive to work - does it?

It's a perk. Enjoy it

It is counted if you are on bench.. If you are not then it's now

It is when you are up promotion.

Up for*

The consulting services teams of big tech (Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, etc) seem like obvious entry points for consultants due to relevant experience, but they get little attention here. Why is that? Do those roles lack good pay, advancement opportunities or better WLB vs working for a consultancy?

Serious question: how do you "become" a top performer in a company? I get why some are viewed as rock stars or go-getters, but not how they do it or drum up the top-level support for it. Whenever I press to kickstart initiatives or push in a certain direction, the leadership is never interested in the actions or ideas. Instead, we just get told to bill hours and keep our utilization high. It's demoralizing how there is no support or interest in people that try to develop new areas or initiatives
