Who really gives a shit! None of that stuff really matters let's be honest. If the PPEDs like you because you bring in business, be their bitch, you are good to go. Otherwise your just another body and they will find a way to screw you in your rating.

Manager goal is 75. You're a little low.

Varies slightly by practice but manager effective is 80. You still have some time left to get it up.

You talking about Full or Effective Utilization?

80% in most practices but why isn't this part of your overall goal either explicitly or implicitly?

Full.

Bad

If it is you versus someone else for one spot, metrics are tiebreakers.
