New to consulting, but it seems like utilization targets really only function to incentivize folks to avoid the bench. In terms of billing actuals, isn’t everybody better off if you just bill 40/45/whatever your target is? Better forecasting and budgeting (good for project lead), client paid for hours so we charge for them (good for partner), peace of mind for hitting utilization target (good for consultant who doesn’t have to worry as much about hitting target). Am I missing something here?
For those that have managed to crack MBB interviews and get an offer, did you pay for sessions with a coach? Does it increase chances of getting through?

Hi fishes, I'm looking for a job change project management field
generally speaking, do government agencies actually demand more from you if you’re in a higher vs. a lower salary tier/division e.g., I vs. II, II vs. III, III vs. IV, etc.? Perhaps there’s a difference between maybe I and III but is there a significant difference in responsibilities and performance expectations between II and III, or III and IV for example?
Chicago personal injury 1-3 year associates: how much is your base salary before commission?
Recently was informed that my salary will be increasing and was asked to sign a Confidentiality and Assignment of Inventions Agreement.
Anyone experience this before? Is it pretty typical?
Hi everyone. I have 2.5 years of experience: one year as an entry level data scientist out of undergrad in industry. Then 1.5 years in data science consulting. I’m currently at 120k base salary in Chicago. I don’t think my current firm is right for me / the projects I’ve come across do not feel all that innovative and many are just vaporware. What is the right next move for me without sacrificing career growth? I’m also pursuing the OMSA degree part time and am skilled in Python, SQL, & Tableau.

Would it be in bad taste if I were to bring up my teammate’s salary when trying to negotiate a salary raise? He has a similar title as me, but my manager doesn’t know his salary. Would it be a bad move if I told him that I want the same pay as my teammate?
What's the path to client services look like?
After 20 years in a niche market and ready for a change. I have 4 years in sales, 4 years in Installation, Service and Support, and 12 years in Design and Project management.

Looking a remote openings for Project Manager they seem to mostly be IT, any suggestions on where to look from here?

Desperate for ideas on how to deal with insane discovery requests in Florida given the lack of special sets and the time it takes a court to hear a motion for protective order. It's becoming a pattern that we do our objections or a motion for protective order, but OC's immediately move to compel and for sanctions at the discovery deadline. By the time the court decides the issue, it's usually in favor of the party propounding the discovery because they hate overdue discovery and don't even read.

Lateraled a month ago and after two weeks a very young partner told me my work had “consistently missed the mark” which was not at all in line with other feedback I’ve received. I have my own criticisms for him, and I’ve since learned that most of my peers feel similarly about him. I know I’m a good attorney, and I know I should take it with a grain of salt, but feedback like that two weeks in has left my head spinning and I’m wondering if leaving my old firm was the biggest mistake of my career

Hi - share my joy as an antidote to the Sunday scaries (or the bears 😒)
I joined the bone marrow registry while in college, nearly 20 years ago. Last fall, I found out that I matched a stranger with leukemia and ultimately donated stem cells. Over the weekend, I got to meet the recipient and her family (on zoom, can’t have it all!). She’s one year post transplant and cancer free! Pretty cool thanksgiving.
Want to join the registry? I’ll put a link in the comments below
