Do we have a chargeable code that we can bill our time to while we are waiting on a code to open? Its getting close to FYE utilization cut off so want to make sure I get credit for the hours pending.
Deloitte peeps.. when is the cutoff date for utilization that will be counted for our YE review?
I think we need to expand utilization metrics into audit sabermetrics. Monthly reports showing: Average expletives per audit Review notes per workpaper Average cry time per day What others are good?
Promoted to SSE with 25% hike and 9% VP. I received ACE award in Q3 with recognization still I feel VP is very less. Utilization report I have maintained 100% . Is it possible to revisit the component
Hey 🐠. Team is supposed to be off this wk, but instead is working M-W and the Partner said that this is a “PRD” week, meaning that we are not billing (getting utilization). Is this against policy?
Curious as to how people utilize their experience managers/resource managers...are they helpful in getting staffed/managing utilization?
What denominator does EYP use when calculating our utilization? Are we accountable for 55 or 40 hours a week?
What happens if you don’t meet utilization targets in a year? I switched from audit to advisory and have been here 2 months and my billable hours are way less than I was expecting (avg 30 a week). I’ve had good feedback on my projects and ask for more work in my down time, but the change of pace from when I was in audit is stressing me out.
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
What would you do if you have way less clients than your peers? Do you wait until you are assigned more clients or speak up? I'm a high performer but not utilized to my fullest capacity.
Today’s career aspiration: get to the level where you do not have to submit time sheets. SVP? EVP?￼
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
Is it alright if my utilization drops below what it is supposed to be by a little bit (5% or less drop from standard amount) while I don’t have a lot of work to do?
Is there an appropriate way to convey high chargeability on your resume? My firm doesn’t provide quantitative rankings as far as reviews go, but my utilization is 30% higher than the average so I’m trying to figure out how to convey that as an indicator of high performance
When does fy18 utilization start? May or July?
Has anyone seen the new ToD dashboard? I can't view the Resource Management tile. Any other way to check my CSH and utilization?
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?

What things will you discontinue from pre-pandemic life after vaccination? Not just a health question, but habits, society, and outlook on life in general. Assuming WFH gave you space to reflect about everything
At EY (or other Big 4 I guess too), what's the average number of years to go from senior consultant to manager in TAS?
How much PTO are you taking off for your wedding (and/or honeymoon)? I'm starting a new job and worried and want to take less but also don't want to regret taking more time for my honeymoon.
Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?
If a company is using salary bands and I know them for the levels above me. Can I expect that I will at least receive the minimum of the band or are bands only used for external candidates and internal may receive even less.
I’m young and food at the office is important to me but weird to ask if it’s back with covid to the people you’re interviewing with. Do you know if LinkedIn’s nyc office has started food in the office again or will in the fall?
What was the most boss way you’ve seen a SM/partner stand up to a client when the client was being overly harsh?
I've recently been thinking about going back to school for my MBA, but the truth is, im not sure what it will do for my career. Is an MBA useful in HR anymore? I'm located in Canada if that helps.
Good evening! I’ve been at the D for a year now and I’m ready to jump ship. Have an interview set up with KPMG in advisory as a project manager (4 YOE and a PMP cert). Any idea on what that pay range is in the Midwest? Give or take
I’m up for partner next year at my Am Law 85-100 firm, where I’m quite happy, other than with respect to comp. With this market paying what it’s paying, I’m getting a lot of interest in other firms. Two Am Law top 20 firms have shown serious interest. I would get market pay, work the same number of hours as current, but partnership is several years away. What’s the right move here? Compensation and supporting my family are top factors.
Guys, need some help on salary negotiation tactics. I am new to consulting but have 10 years industrial experience and a MBA. Got an offer as M2 in Data Governance based in Dallas. Base offering is $165. I know most of you would say this is fair. However, I am currently in Canada and would have to do a hell of move. I want a bigger incentive to justify the move. Again any sincere advices are appreciated!

Been reading articles on how to improve your look on Zoom calls and some say using virtual backgrounds lower your executive presence. Do you agree? And let’s assume you’re not using an Office Space background.
