Why is it that anytime I’ve gotten on a proposal, those asking for help have given me a non-billable code? Is that time counting towards my utilization or am I missing something?
My practice for example - maybe I'm the minority here. But our MDs emphasized over and over again that it is their fault that we have no works to do. It's NEVER our fault if we have low utilization.

My dad is turning 65 soon and yesterday he told me he’s super unhappy at his job bc he’s not getting promoted. He feels like his talents are not being utilized. I feel for him but he’s so close to retirement and he’s the sole breadwinner for him and my mom (brother and I offered support but they decline). Has anyone been in a similar situation? I feel like he will get discouraged with his job search if he doesn’t hear back from places and will be even more unhappy. Anyone have any leads on (con)

Your score was impacted because the number of these accounts is too low, or because you've missed payments recently on some of your accounts.
Help me ask for a raise in my upcoming performance review? In sum, my company’s HQ is in Texas and I feel I’m being paid a Texas wage when I live in Los Angeles (the role is remote). We do have a San Francisco office and I want to ask my boss to match me what staff are making there. As that’s more comparable. Based off of Glassdoor, my salary matches Texas’s exactly and SF has the same role at 10k more. Should I show him the Glassdoor page? Don’t want to come off too strong. Please advise
