Tips for consolidating credit cards ? I use at least 4 cards, it's hard to stay on top of the deadlines for payments and utilization. I use Mint and Mint Bills currently.
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
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
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
My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
What % utilization did you get as a 1st year analyst (BA or BTA)? What rating did that equate to?
New to FDD from audit. Any advice on getting utilization up? Frequently bouncing around on a deal two days at a time. Have the skill and talent to do great work, just need to show it
Poll Question: which consultant would you rather staff or hire and why? A. Consultant who has worked with the same client for two straight years, above target utilization. B. Consultant who has worked with 8 different clients over two years, above target utilization.
Agency leaders my question for you is simple, what’s yo target metric for utilization of talent at your org? Talent being designer / developers / creatives.
Why does Deloitte's utilization calculation take 52 weeks x 40 hrs as the denominator, what about firm holidays?
GT NY Folks- Tax A1 here, any insight on round tables for first year’s? People have said they generally never fire A1’s, is that true? Utilization is low so a little concerned.
EY FSO is hurting. Don't expect a decent raise or bonus..regardless of your utilization or ratings ...
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
I told myself I was leaving the firm if I didn't hit a certain amount of salary after my raise this year. Deloitte hit the EXACT figure. What are the odds. Is my phone being tapped? 😂
Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.

What would be your choice: Munich in Germany or Krakow in Poland? 33% higher salary in Germany, but much higher taxes /cost of living.
Are EY Promotion Bonuses locked in on October 1st? Or October 15th? I’m wondering if a newly promoted Senior leaves the firm between October 2nd - 14th will they forfeit the Senior Promotion Bonus...
I’m trying to figure out what I need to do covid wise for my upcoming Europe trip (first week of August). Will be staying in Italy and Greece and passing thru (only airport) UK and Netherlands. I’m fully vaxxed from the US, will I be ok to enter/connect through these countries? There is so much conflicting info out there my head hurts.
Bonvoy fish - if I were to book 2 separate rooms for 3 night stay, would i get 6 nights that count toward my status? Or just 3? Thanks!
My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?
What positions would I qualify for? I currently work as a Sales Specialist for a Fortune 500. My responsibility is indirect management of sales rep effectiveness/readiness for a specific product category. Throughout my career I have experience direct selling, coaching reps, sales training, strategic management of a product category, cross department partnerships. I’m looking to further expand my career into Leadership. What are my options?
I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩

EY fish, i-140 approved but I haven't completed my 180 days yet. Got extension for 3 years (completed 6 years on H1b). Will EY revoke the GC petition if I decide to join EY in my home country?
Controversial take: if we can send young men and women to war...why can’t we have challenge trials for COVID that likely has a lower risk of death and larger positive impact than war
Got offers out of undergrad in tech consulting from PwC and Deloitte. Accenture interview next week. Thoughts on which one I should go for?
Being heavily recruited by Golin at the moment but I’m hearing mixed reviews on the culture. Any current employees with opinions to share? Wanna hear more before taking the bait.
