The bench is really light and staffing is definitely an issue

Basically every firm is strained for capacity. Yes, it's an industry wide challenge right now.

GT Public Sector is super understaffed

We were drowning from understaffing from June-May 2020...

Yes we are still understaffed and hiring like crazy. I see more people leaving than being hired though so it’s like all we can do is stop the bleeding.

Literally turning down work because we're so capacity constrained...

It’s been a massive struggle to staff up anything. Folks are being staffed weeks in advance of roll off often with overlap supporting two projects which is typically reserved for SM+

Glad to see it isn’t just an us problem though.
