When do utilization rates reset at PwC?
New SALT person here-- could someone help me out with recognizing if/when an underlying investment utilized the 163(j)? We received an underlying Federal K-1 that shows Line 13k but I can't figure out if it was utilized or not. Is that line even included taxable income to begin with? TIA!
Curious...currently at 60% utilization PY. Some things on the pipeline but I don't feel particularly confident that them. What's considered dangerously low? Genuine advice?
What are benchmarks for good/bad utilization %. How do I know if I have a healthy % or not?
How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
I have some extra utilization. Does it automatically roll over to the next performance year or do I have to let someone in Talent know?
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".
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
New hire question: How can I increase my utilization to meet target? Even if I work 40 hrs a week because of my hire date I'll miss the target by 4%.
Will the inability to speak the local language fluently in a country like Germany or Japan definitely impact utilization negatively below manager level?
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?
I️ don’t want to be tied to a single technology and would like to have a breadth of experience and freedom. Although it seems the only way to get utilization is through a single tech piece. Continued
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
Why are audit associates evaluated based on utilization but audit engagements are evaluated based on “profitability” even though the engagements are a fixed fee? There seems to be a direct conflict of incentives between associates and the rest of management.
Anyone have experience relocating from United States to UK or EU? Either through an office change at your firm or via another route? I’ve had the urge to move to Europe for quite some time and it hasn’t gone away. I’m hoping to gain some insight to determine if this is something worth exploring or if it’s nearly impossible.

I currently work a temporary position with the federal gov. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family soon. I’m concerned maternity leave may not be on the table due to the “time limited appointment”. The confusion is people’s time limited appointments keep getting extended and some have been there for 1+ year. I’m concerned about the scenario where we get pregnant and then my appointment ends… I’m also nervous about how job hopping will look because I just started in June.
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Is it really worth it to have investment properties in areas where property doesn't appreciate much but rental returns are pretty high? We spend a lot of time managing our property, which we rent through Airbnb. We get a 10% cap rate but then we lose half of that in taxes (my spouse and I are in a high income and tax bracket). I'm starting to think I should sell the property and just invest in something where we only have to pay long term capital gains of 20%. Am I thinking about this wrong?

In a moral predicament: hate ghosting and like to give an explanation cuz I’m not a dick, but at the same time, they don’t know me or have my number sooo why bother? Scenario: found out after asking to hang out that the person is reaaaaally far away. So far to the point where based on personal experience, it’ll be hard to maintain a relationship as someone will always sacrifice doing a 30-60min+ drive and we’d be relegated to weekends only. Worth giving an explanation or just unmatch?
