1st year auditor here in west coast office. I’m book 60 hours this week however I only worked 48 hours. We’re still waiting on supporting docs and my senior tells me to log of early. Will this impact my performance and utilization?

Not a 1 week issue. Overall you’ll definitely hit your 55 charge goal for busy season. Enjoy the break before you get burned out.


You'll have plenty once the work comes in. You'll likely have a 60 hour schedule but hit 70+. It'll balance itself out. Enjoy the time off while you can.


Typical earlier in January, enjoy it, you’ll do over 60 later to compensate lol

Director at PwC. I had 65 hours scheduled for review this week. Instead I only had about 24 hours of review and worked on an internal project to stay busy. I will make it up before March 1st.

I don't know about KPMG but at GT the staff utilization really doesn't matter for your performance. It's the seniors/managers jobs to keep you utilized and sometimes there just isn't enough to do. It's just a benchmark to make sure you're not coasting and not contributing

So no chit there I was, in BFE standing around watching people work. #utilization.

Please stop sending me invites to join Fishbowl. I'm already here and I feel my utilization dropping rapidly!


I love how people pride themselves with being unassigned or out or busy season ... My Utilization levels are still over 100.. Busy season until June ! #AuditLife


So... What's your utilization looking like?


Been consulting for 5 years and still don't get the PTO-to-utilization thing. That and I lose 10-15 days of PTO a year!

Shadow fired from v25 firm job today (2nd year associate/Class of 2019) - given 3 months to find a new job. Somewhat blindsided, but firm seems supportive in helping me catch on somewhere.

If some one has gone through the experience, can you please share what it was like. TIA! 🙏
