Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
AFS 🐟, what are salary and bonus ranges at levels 8-6 in the cleared space? Also, what are the typical utilization and BD expectations? Thanks in advance.
People on here are talking about billable hours and utilization... are those things that are tracked on an individual basis? We do it as a firm aggregate and thought that was the norm, but seems to be that it might be tied to specific people at other firms?
Do airline bathrooms average the highest utilization of any public bathrooms? Every time I go in its wall to wall w dudes dropping heat. Ladies is this the same for you?
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?
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?
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)

If you are on an FWA, do you need to meet your FWA utilization hours every week? I.e I am 75% so do I need 30 charge plus whatever admin hours to mercury? I am talking to my people consultant and she seems to think so. In a job that is highly seasonal, how is this possible??
EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
How can utilization encourage efficiency? I have a 30hr code and I finished the work in 5hr. If I charge 5, the write up gives credit to the partner and my utilization suffers.
If coming from consulting, how many years of work experience is needed to not have it be a liability in MBA apps?
Worked hard, won business and asked for a raise - got 10%. Now closer to median salary for my YOE. But it’s not in effect until my first year anniversary which is 2-3 months away. Should I accept the raise or negotiate?
Got an engagement manager position with Amazon . Also, got promoted to Manager with Deloitte . Where should I go ?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
I gained over 25 pounds over lockdown, went for drinks with colleagues for the first time since March 2020, and the very next day I had other colleagues messaging me on teams and dropping remarks about how they are walking a lot these days to drop COVID weight. It might be a coincidence but probably not. Feels like my weight was discussed a lot behind my back as no one else in the group of people that went out had gained weight.
I usually don’t do a lot of holiday baking but this year actually have the time... would it be weird to drop off home baked goods to neighbors due to covid?

Anyone else constantly checking their airline/hotel/car rental apps thinking their miles/segments/nights/points is going to go up magically? 😭 oh. Just me?
