I’d guess the MD group.

The PE group out of EI - small ~60 people out of the 400 to 500 in US is actually top of the industry. They are regularly sighted as the strongest in the industry. Please note, these people take interim roles, drive value creation plans, and actual outcomes in the PortCos for the PE shops. Less advisory and more operations. They work with all of the marquee names in the PE industry, keep a relatively low profile, but have been the motive force on the hard operations issues that PE firms run into.

Top notch - all around.

Internal functions… you have normal hours 😉

T&R? That's by far their strongest practice.

This group is not part of TRS, but actually is fully operated out of the EI practice

Depends on your skill set and what you’re looking for. What are you optimizing for when you say “best”?

EI gets paid more than TRS. It also generates more revenue for Alix than TRS.

Anyone have tips for waking up early when I’m always tired? I really need to wake up at 6:30-7 so I can work out but I’m so exhausted in the mornings that I can’t get out of bed (and have recently started turning off alarms in my sleep... so even worse lol). Work hours are 8:30am-10pm on a good day and 12-1am on a worse day. Sleep hygiene stuff is tough since I can’t just stop looking at screens an hour before bed.

Is anyone actively using LeSS? We're starting a new product with a small team but I expect us to need to grow the size over the next year to 3-4x. LeSS sounds attractive but I've never used it and would like to know how it works in the wild.

Our existing portfolio uses Scrum with 2 week sprints, but to be honest I find it not to be very efficient (very likely how we are implementing it, with Design/BA/Dev/QA roles and gates). Love to hear what's working for you.

I’m onboarding at a new consulting firm (big4). I was told in a big onboarding meeting with 300+ people in all kinds of diff roles at the firm that the ideal utilization rate is 80% billable. How long did it take you to get to 80% billable? And are there ever any consulting roles where you can consistently be less than 80% billable and still get promoted, get rated well, etc eg if your role just naturally involves a lot of admin work like proposal writing?
