Welcome to Whose Job is it Anyways! Where the deliverable is made up and the utilization doesn't matter.
My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
When do utilization rates reset at PwC?

Has anyone been approved for short term disability for depression? What was the process like?
I'm probably going to get an offer for a job with better work life balance and I don't know whether to take it. I have young kids and I find the firm culture difficult, but I really like my project.
It seems like the work life balance at MBB is always described as horrendous. But how does Bain keep receiving the number one best place to work per glassdoor? Heck, they received an award for best places to work for parents. Are they paying for that ranking? Is Bain really not that bad? Just seems to be some conflicting info.

Has anyone starting trying to get pregnant after starting at a new firm or did you wait at least a year ?
I could use some guidance on how to transition out of firm life into a government role. Prior to law: four years working for a state and a city, and four years before that worked at a consulting agency strictly serving government agencies and cities/counties. You’d think this would parlay well into the government roles I am applying for, but so far no dice. I’m entering my fourth year practicing as a lawyer. I love admin law, have some litigation and some transaction work as a lawyer. Thanks!
