I’m new to Consulting. How to keep ur utilization rate high? Not very clear on utilization rate.
What does the market look like for M&A consultants in the next two years? I'm talking to a firm that has 90%+ utilization so they have open roles. Changing companies in a time like this appears risky though. What is everyone else seeing?
Received ECT AD in ops at BCG. I have two questions:
1. Is it difficult for these roles to get utilization/billability targets?
2. If I work for say 3-5 years, opportunity for good industry exits?
Background - 15 YOE. Currently Director at global firm. I am not looking to become an equity partner and happy to focus on content and interesting work. Main reason to join is opportunity to work and learn from different clients, smart people and good brand. Feedback/guidance/insights welcome!
Does having higher Standard Utilization helps in annual performance/promotions?

Genuine answers please :)
Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
Question for PwC folks: if I'm sick and working from home, but there wasn't much to do that day, what is better utilization-wise: charge to available or to sick day? Or no difference? Thanks guys!

When will YTD utilization metrics be available on DNET for 2018? Right now it says there is no data available.
A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price. Anyone had similar experience?

Alvarez & Marsal How does comp work at Alvarez & Marsal? I know bonus is based on utilization / collections, but how does that really work when you're executing against a SOW with a certain amount of hours budgeted. If I'm only budgeted at 70%, how do you increase your utilization to increase your bonus.
Caught a peak of the advisory utilization numbers...could see layoffs at KPMG as well. HUGE amount of 0% on the year with 0% forecast in retain. Also heard parts of RC just got reorganized at the top
I wish admin utilized Tier 1 supports with teachers. Smiles, appreciations and acknowledging ones efforts would do a great deal to boost morale and climate. I just don’t understand what that is so hard to do.

Anybody work for Reliant Rehab? We’re in the mid-Atlantic region and our COTAs were told Friday they are getting 9% pay cuts. I’m fairly new with Reliant and I can’t help but feel deflated that this is how employees are treated given the environment. I heard 4% pay cuts last year too. Is this happening in other rehabs?

I was offered a Part Time Physician Case Manager Position (Remote) in Malaysia on 4th November 2022. I was interviewed by your Medical Director (Dr. Christine Louis) via Microsoft teams platform. The whole onboarding process was handled by a senior HR admin from Shanghai.
Subsequently, I was required to sign a contract and provide financial details and ID for onboarding purposes. I have then given Microsoft office sign-in credentials.
Would like to verify the facts and personnel above. TQ!
What is the worst experience you've had at work?
Have you struggled with feeling like your opinion isn't heard? I sometimes feel like I have to speak up twice as loud to be taken as seriously as my male colleagues. Not naturally assertive. What did you do in this case?

How are staff selected for layoffs?
Any of you work as weekend adjunct professor or lecturer in your local school? Curious to talk to someone who does this on the side (on top of your full time consultant role)
I am reaching out because I applied for an investment Banking Internship at JP Morgan and I would love to benefit from your knowledge on some tips for the interview. To give a bit of background about myself, I am currently pursuing an M2 in Sustainable Finance and Fintech with SKEMA business school. If someone can give a bit of advice I would be forever grateful!

As a manager you have expectations about leading in the office. You are a leader in the firm now and are expected to act like it.
Yes but how many besides billable work?
Aye, you might be an ahole. Ask for specific examples and figure out how you can adjust.
Am I in trouble?
What else did you do besides 40 hours PRD and the billable work? How many hours in Snapshots?
2100 hours of snapshots - specialist track
No other snapshots except client and the 40 hours of prd work
Sounds like a leadership problem. Not sure why lack of local involvement would sink you, but has similar feedback. Still got a 2 last year.
Would suck to be canned after what I thought was a year where I killed it, and PRD work that were actual wins
Solid snapshots and 101% util should keep you away from being canned. 40 hrs on firm initiatives seems very light, you should try to do more.
@D3 you a savage for that one. OP set up some more happy hours
What service line?
I'm just telling you what I was told. Recruiting managing counselees, attending office events are all table stakes. If you don't do, you are hurt. If you do, then no big deal. Like compliance
