Slab?

By slab I mean your level whether associate, exp associate, senior associate, M or D

You don't get top tier bouns and if it stays really low for long they fire you if you are associate/ senior associate. Above that I am sure it is less ulitization and more money you bring the firm

Think of utilization and sales as the primary weights, relative to your role expectations. Miss big on utilization you had better win big on sales. Etc.

Then your fine. Mostly likely not top tier but no to risk of being fired. Try harder next year

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
