Switched from a firm that could not care less about realization rates to one that “casually keeps an eye on it”. So... what’s normal? Second year associate, mid size firm.

Curious to see the replies to this but I’d imagine a “typical” realization rate is largely dependent upon your practice area, billing rate, and market.
