PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?

What do you do when you're on the bench? Apparently I'm being picked up next week, but my team hasn't sent me any prep materials. I'm helping for 2-3 hrs per day, but the rest of the time......nada.
Ladies, looking for advice on when to tell job that I’m expecting. I am due early November. I’m on the bench, so being considered for multiple rolls. I’d start and then have to go on leave 2-3 months later. Any advice? Are there any specific rules? I was thinking of telling HR 30days out to start leave conversation. TIA!

View points on Deloitte Commercial Cyber ?
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
Guidehouse 🐠, what’s the salary range for a Senior Associate with the Business & IT Strategy group? Also, is a Senior Associate equal to a Deloitte SC?
Any advice would be helpful. Recently started at a tech consultancy and am building up the HR function. Thanks!
Anyone know the comp for Accenture Talent & Organization Manager? DC Office. 5 years mix of consulting and industry w/MBA.
Partners won’t turn down more work despite the associate exodus. I get it. Firms are businesses. But, there will be consequences. Deadlines will be missed, things will be sloppy. PSA to associates: you’re the loser here because we are in a service profession and firms make profit off of how many hours they can squeeze out of us minus our fixed salary. Put yourself first because no one else will. To those who say it’s justified cause $$$, I say no job should require us to sacrifice our health.
Sibling has two internship offers. Accenture Consulting Development program vs KPMG CIO Advisory. Can anyone give advice on which to pick?

My company did an analysis of the diversity of our outside counsel based on hours billed and spend. Women billed more than half the hours but were far less than half the spend 😒
Actively looking for testing job...Manual preferred with UFT automation...anyone if can help.
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
