OP, I'm sure if you stay busy in the upcoming year with client work and a few firm initiatives/proposals on the side, you'll get a 3 no problem and maybe even a 2 if you push yourself. Keep the right attitude and everything will fall into place

It means you have the next 6 months to continue operating at a high level while staffed... then at mid-year we'll evaluate you to make sure you're back on track. It also means no raise or bonus though... sorry bud...

4 means no raise and no bonus and likely a PIP. You can come back from it but it's definitely an issue.

D1 performing well is 1 or 2 ?

Well yea your utilization was a problem....

I was on the bench for a while when I first joined, because my federal project kept getting delayed. Will I be help responsible for this? Snapshots are excellent otherwise, top corner.

46% - yikes, that's much more unstaffed time than just rolling off around the holidays. How is that util percentage even possible?
