Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
How am I expected to keep 2 interns and a first year and the GDC fully utilized when I and the rest of my team barely have things to hand off.
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
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?
Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
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
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?
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
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?
Will a sabbatical affect your utilization?
EY Utilization.... what's your full Utilization YTD? Specifically interested in other managers or senior managers.
I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes. I love the pay and I don’t mind working hard, w/ long hours, but the “business of consulting” is exhausting (e.g. maintaining utilization, selling engagements, 6k iterations of a deck, etc). Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?
What are firms utilization and sales expectations for manager? My sales for first year manager is 1m and utilization is 70%. Is this generally normal, lenient, or aggressive? I’m at a small boutique ~100 people
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?

Sacramento Big 4 folks: What is your office culture like? Which is the best Big 4 in town in terms of market power?

Has anyone from MBB worked at the same client where there is one of the big 4 ? How are the dynamics between the two in that engagement?

Just got staffed under my first incompetent, asshole male senior manager who is talking to me like I’m a 1st year associate. I’m 30 and have a top tier MBA.
A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated
