Yes 2nd year but they keep saying 95%

BTAs get promoted or coincided out. Unless you have performance issues you will get a 3 and a promotion

What is BTA?

Business technology analyst. An analyst in the Tech practice

The target is 89% I have no idea where you are getting 95% from

You're probably fine -- will depend on your snapshots and what utilization is like in your SL but as long as the other stuff isn't bad you'll just get a 3 and promo. 3rd year BTAs are more rare than 1/1.5-year promos (although I was one of the unlucky former)

You'll be good. One of the BTAs I was hired with didn't get promoted after two years and is still with the firm. I still wonder how and why no promo...mystery.

Someone explain to me how this works: if I have really good snapshots with performance differentiators for almost every snapshot I have, but my utilization is below the goal for my level. I’m asking..

90% utilization, great snapshots BUT no relationships with the partners in my practice + currently on beach. Everyone I've worked with is shocked. Was told there were HC quotas. Not meritocratic.
