Pro tip - just do your job, charge your time, take vacation, forget about utilization

likesmart

Vacation is always counted towards effective utilization. In other news... utilization should never impact your desire to take a vacation.

like

Vacation, personal days and illness are all taken out to calculate your effective utilization. Ultimately, the firm cares about full utilization at year end. Just take your vacation or personal days

like

And take personal days whenever you like as long as it is ok with your schedule/team and doesnt interfere with deadlines. The fall holidays are usually easier to take time off because most clients are also taking time off and have fewer deadlines

Vacation hits full utilization right? I was told your effective takes into account vacation days? Wrong?

I thought only effective utilization matters?

Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet.

He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.
