Question: Is it normal to have a teamlead role combined with a 50% utilization rate?

50% util on that engagement or 50% overall? I've worked on engagements with a part time SM before, if memory serves he worked MWF only. I've also worked with SMs/Ds who've split their time between multiple projects with <25% util per project.

If the team lead is at a ~D level, that sounds reasonable, though the duties sound more along the lines of an account/practice lead than a team lead.

Seems low to me. If I have a team lead, I’m looking for them to be client facing and billable.

Arrow Icon

No. They would be leading the team and should be highly billable. The TL is the main technical face to the client and THE person driving a solution. A PM may be backing them up for the business context, but a TL is first and foremost a leader.

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

Anyone else just sitting around waiting for the ax to drop? I'm a soon to be 2nd year corporate associate who has seen work completely dry up. My utilization held pretty steady around 50% immediately after shutdown, but August was below 15 billables with no appreciable work in the pipeline. Aside from letting people know I'm available and doing pro-bono/CLE, it's starting to feel like a serious "covidcation" leading to termination.

Looking to make a move into this sector. Currently an Auditor who serves VC/PE companies, but am burnt out of audit life. I’ve been looking into FDD at other Big 4 firms, but it seems people have similar complaints. Higher pay certainly sounds nice though.. Also seems that A&M is a desire able exit for people. Is anyone able to provide further insights on what to expect in FDD at Big 4, versus a similar role at A&M?

I do wish him a speedy recovery. 🙏🏾 Wisdom is the principal thing!
