First year BTS TCI, started in June 2019 and have 65% CS utilization so far. How worried should I be?
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?
Beyond utilization and training, what other metrics are important at YE? Five got a slide on projects and one on initiatives. Am I missing anything?
All of the suggestions on how to maintain WLB fall to individuals - but ultimately if the firm keeps selling as much work as we’re selling, we can’t deliver if lots of folks reduce hours. Seems like a supply/demand mismatch. How can we empower our teams to prioritize WLB and also get all the work done, when utilization is still so high?
Got 4 and put on PIP . What to do guys ? Going good this year , utilization above 100 , got 2 decent initiatives . Should I wait till mid year ? Or quit ? When do they remove PIP ?
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?
Deloitte 🐟 - is there something on DNet to find out how exactly is our utilization calculated?
Has anyone seen the new ToD dashboard? I can't view the Resource Management tile. Any other way to check my CSH and utilization?
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.
McK folks - how is your performance evaluated ? I've heard McK does not use utilization as a metric. True?
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.
Please stop sending me invites to join Fishbowl. I'm already here and I feel my utilization dropping rapidly!
If you join in the middle of the year, does your utilization get adjusted? If so, when does it show up on Staffit? I've been here since may and have been utilized since day 3, yet TOD shows me at 58%
While a property is under contract, is it okay to increase my credit utilization from 18% to 25%, or should I make sure the percentages stay the same? I had some unexpected car expenses pop up and I didn't want to use cash to cover them before closing.
Why do the big four keep hiring college students aggressively then fire them after a year for having low utilization. Why not just hire the amount you can actually staff
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?
Mohamed (Pwc advisory leader) just mentioned the utilization memo discussion on fishbowl! Haha
Anyone has any contacts in sursee or Zurich? My mother was on a guided tour and has fallen sick. The tour went ahead without her and now she is in hospital alone . Any contact will be appreciated
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
If I was laid off from my company due to budget cuts (not performance), do I write my résumé in past tense or act as if I’m still in the role? How bad is the stigma surrounding layoffs like this?

Tips for recovering from bad interviews?
I have an EB-3 petition in progress. Waiting for my EAD/AP card, courtesy of being current for 2 glorious months. But the dates have now regressed, and EB-2 is moving forward faster. So trying to get an EB-2 application going. But Deloitte is refusing to do that unless I get promoted to SM. Currently an M. Any advice? Just stick with my EB-3 and wait for my SM promotion? Get a different job? Anything else I could consider?
If you are an associate assisting on a file, you get cc’d on all emails and take time to read them and stay up to date, however you aren’t actually replying to the emails or doing any billable work. But you need to stay in the loop for when you need to eventually draft a document and know the facts. How do you record your time for these emails?

My client is an expert with wasting time. Then again, I’m an expert with wasting their money.
What are you guys having more success with these days during remote work - hourly, day, weekly or project rates? I find myself billing less than 30 hrs a week but then working a lot - taking new biz calls, admin, switching back and forth btw clients, etc. Anyone else going through this?
