Anyone leave Deloitte for Booz Allen? Thoughts or experiences? Utilization and compliance are absolutely doing my head in.
Worried I didn't deliver on Impact Day. Fences I painted were only OK. 1 year C, strong 3 YE, all 2 PEs, and good utilization. Should I be concerned? Time to start looking @ other firms/options?
Why does EY pull metrics 3/31???? That means anything you do in April, May, and June goes unrecognized at year end. A full quarter of work and utilization for nothing, this doesn't seem right.
When they say utilization doesn't count for the month of May/June what exactly does that entail? I'm assuming being on the bench for those months will still show on personal utilization reports...
PwC Advisory Consultants-- when does utilization count from for the new fiscal year? Someone mentioned in the advisory webcast as May 1, but shouldn't it be June 1? Since May hours are not even....
I’ve heard so many different ways people calculate utilization at other firms- citing Deloitte as the most stringent. Is that true?
If our target utilization rate is 95% what is the actual rate wherein less than that, the firm actually lost money on me?
Is going over budget a really bad thing or should you just eat your time and have a lower utilization rate?
Deloitte TS&A Manager utilization - provide yours for the performance year that just ended. I'll go - 74%
Someone told me utilization doesn't really count in June at EY since it is after year end cycle and before the next year starts. Any truth to this? Seems like a good time for some 4 day weekends.
Is any of you planning to send any work to SDC (Service Delivery Center) in Alpharetta or Jacksonville? We are tired of biting our nails. Very low utilization across competencies
EY, question about utilization. If we hit 40 chargeable hours for the week, does charging time to admin/auth-proj. impact utilization in any way? I’ve only been logging chargeable hrs in GTE...
What is utilization and morale like at Strategy&? I recently joined PwC, and people from Strategy& seem a bit stand-offish. In cap markets, there aren't too many strategy projects.
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?
How do you 100% utilized folks try to network with other folks in at the firm if you’re always at client site? Trying to get some face time with them
I’m going to be sad when I have to go back into the office again and have to eliminate my daily 30 minute lunch break naps from my life. I feel so much more rested, productive and happy working from home and my quality of life has significantly improved due to WFH
Relocating to Philly. Looking for a 1BD/1BA + Den (if possible) on the outskirts of the city. Preferably an apartment complex with amenities, parking, pool, etc. Don’t want to pay more than $2,400/month. Any suggestions on cities, areas, or apartment complexes?
Flying into work Sunday, as I have early meetings Monday. Sheraton just mailed asking where the Accenture office is that I am coming in to visit. Anyone know why?
Do any of your firms have a resourcing model where no one is ever on a project for too long - let’s say no longer than six months or a year (even if the project could be a multi-year engagement) - to ensure you’re getting a wide-range of experience working on different projects, with different people, different clients? Would anyone rather not have this type of model?
Would accepting a new position with a 20k pay bump be worth it when you have job security at your current job? Just given the pandemic and don’t want to set myself up for a potential layoff in the future.
Things to do with extra cash...What is more important to you and why.....enhancing your home, going on family vacations, watching your savings account grow or investing in stocks?
I like brown shoes with my suits. I would only wear black shoes if I'm wearing a black or super dark almost black suit. Black shoes look stuffy to me. I try to avoid wearing them. Anyone else feel this way?
Is it cool to use nazis in advertising? Not sure if I'm just having a knee-jerk reaction here, it feels weird to me. Crying nazis are funny, but it feels weird that all three are pretending to be the same. Would it be less funny if they were French, American generals etc?
For those in Transaction Strategy & Execution, how many hours per week do you bill on average? What is considered the expectation that you bill?
Heading to b-school soon. So far there are only a handful of girls prettier than me based on zooms/social media so things are looking bright 😜😜😜💁♀️💁♀️
It feels weird posting a LinkedIn post in FishBowl, but I found this post from Jamal very insightful. I would have just copied the text, but I want to give him credit.
Looking for product manager role in industry. 3 YOE with federal consulting doing systems implementation and process improvement in the DC area.
Is there a site that shows all the interest rates for financial instruments? I just wanna browse by interest rate and instrument. New to this.
