for federal projects that cap you at 40/week, do the leadership ever take this into account how it effects your utilization?
How do I check my utilization?
Im interested if TAS practices across various firms rely on cross utilized audit staff during non busy season times. Is this successful or not? Any commentary/thoughts are appreciated.
What is the longest you have seen someone with less than 50% utilization stay in a firm?
Anyone have an app or Excel spreadsheet they use to keep track of utilization? We just switched systems and our new system doesn’t give us a real time balance of our utilization rate (cont)
What's good utilization ? Just started and fretting on low utilization but I think meeting the target of 85% would be doable. Is the average of Staff/ Seniors above 100?
Thoughts on utilization? Why is this metric so important in the consulting world, beyond ratings/internal contribution? Should this not be the responsibility of the firm rather than individuals?
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
Senior associates of PwC, what's your utilization? I want to know if I should panic about a low rating this year. I'm at 80% right now
How fucked am I as a first year BA who will have 60% utilization at year end? Instant 4?
90% utilization with 300+ hours of impactful PRDs. Have snapshots of every work I did this year. Can I expect rating of 1?
Utilization rate this time of year?
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
Currently on the beach and decided to go to Paris with my girlfriend..bloop I literally am not utilized for the past 2 months - might as well make the best of it 🙌
So, what happens if you miss your utilization/billable hour target by like 70-150 hours? Tons of "impactful" PRD work
Ever since Risk Assurance busy season ended, I feel like I’ve been kind of coasting. I’m still getting all my work done but my utilization is slipping. With CRTs coming up, how worried should I be?
I love how people pride themselves with being unassigned or out or busy season ... My Utilization levels are still over 100.. Busy season until June ! #AuditLife
Is utilization less important if the firm simply cannot sell enough projects to staff people on?

Can we talk about those senior consultants that give you attitude when you propose them to embark in a project (with great follow up opportunities) and refuse because they think it is not fitting with their “career” plan and they want to “manage resources”? How do you deal with that ? TBH: I’m shocked with such attitudes. Which manager never had to work on content tbh?
please god, i am barely hanging on with motivation to complete my work, why do i have an over eager intern assigned to me :/
Is it common for insurance companies to disallow legal research or cap the hours you can spend doing legal research? Do you think that capping the hours for research can breed bad attorneys or even worse lead to malpractice claims? Wouldn’t the insurance company have some liability if that happened?
We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!

Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.
