Feeling confident going into CRTs with my 50% utilization 😅

like

As far as I know, the business is healthy right now and teams are largely of the right size. So any counsel out in S& would be the typical 10-15% as we do in any CRT cycle. This happens even if we need more people. That's what makes the consulting wheels turn. S&1 I think you're totally fine. If anything it's your coach and RPs issue to get you onto a project. - NA Director

As S&3 said, things are looking pretty good this year, so attrition should be in the normal 15% range. It's not like last year. If you have good utilization, you're fine as long as you didn't piss off the wrong person. Sounds like that's not an issue. I disagree though that it's one firm and it doesn't matter. You won't be fired because of it, but it will a) hurt your ability to progress and b) hurt your future staffing. I would work with your RP to ensure your next project is S&. People need to know you can do true strategy work.

It's my first year at the firm and I have high utilization and great snapshots but spent a big chunk of it on pwc project. Have heard mixed things about how that will impact my rating and future at the firm. The fact that I'm doing well metrics wise but still hearing negative whispering about things out of my control says a lot. Sigh.

@S1 I think you're fine... it's one firm now so pwc projects are fine as long as your utilization is high. Mine is pretty low... hence the concerns...

If this isn't a real question, you made me laugh.

It's real. Why wouldn't it be real? Just polling fb for an answer. Qualitative data points.

Is it only with Strategy &, or PwC in general. You guys made me nervous

I am not sure about business doing well. Everything I see we sell is mostly the tail of same clients and same work being extended or recycled, we are not having significant wins or building valuable new client relationships. Brand name is dissolving and the vesting period for legacy booz partners ends soon. Expect a lot of them leaving, and with them, their clients. (I am CIPS)
