Lots of people think that utilization / changeability is a bullshit metric. What other metric do you propose to replace it?

Is all the work getting done in a timely fashion and is the client happy? If the answer to both of those is yes, no complaints from me.

Agreed. Understandably, harder to quantify and compare, but this is really what we’re here to do. Snapshots are where my real concern is - far too subjective. Those with the opportunity can just play the game and send reviews to certain people who take it less seriously and consistently give higher reviews, while others are forced to send all their snapshots to the senior above them who is threatened by them and issues ratings based on time at the firm and not actual adherence to goals.

1) Hourly bill rates are stupid. We know the cost and negotiate upfront in an SoW with an agreed upon price.

2) Did you work 40ish hours? Good job. You are now reviewed based on how well you did and how much people like you. (Just like how it happens now).
