Should I ask whether I have had any write offs for my billables throughout the year, prior to my annual review in a few weeks? Or should I have been asking every month since starting?

Yes you should ask, and don’t worry about not asking before. Most associates don’t usually ask (but I encourage you to do so now).

What size firm are you at? Do you have any visibility into your realization figures (% or $)?

If it’s that small it might not even be tracked.

I personally ask monthly and review my productivity monthly as well. But, absolutely ask. It's something I like to stay on top of and this should give you enough time to review prior to any annual review.

Hi all, Need your advice on a career move. I’m currently working in France as a Security Consultant (Freelance) and got offered a new role as a Security Architect. I used to act as an Architect before and it’s great. But basically I’m eager to stay in a position where I can really develop useful security skills. The role I’m currently doing in not that technical. But the company hiring me for the Architect one is firing a lot of people right now, earning less too.. what should I go to?

This pandemic has been bad. Disrupted (prevented) exercise routine due to living circumstances and health reasons, my interpersonal skills at work have been dulled significantly. Like everyone else, there was a lot of disappointment with raises, promos etc. I'm on rejection number 17 for exit opps in the last three months as of today. I feel like a broken person. So much stress would be relieved with a new role and a little raise. What's next?
