15 minutes after the fire alarm went off at client building and as our team stands outside the building the first thing our SM tells the team- "remember all this is billable time."
Deloitte folks, what is your year to date client billable hours ? Disclose your level as well please.
It's 5 PM before the long break. Do you know where your billable hours are? Stay utilized my friend.
Why do the charge hour requirements increase as you move up in BDO. As a manager the admin work is overwhelming and you want me to have even more billable hours then when I was a senior. #impossible
2,158 hours contracted a year. Tax season: 55 hour week minimum with 90% billable time. You?
Is loyalty a thing in consulting? Project leadership has been offering billable hours from the markup even though there's not much to do. Would it be bad if I leave for other opportunities?
Is there a policy for charging billable hours on the weekend? Feel like I should be able to bill 1.5x+ for having to work on the weekend
Question: You're working as a freelancer. And have to travel for the job. Do you include those hours that you are traveling as billable hours or only the next day when the job starts?
The anxiety doesn't stop. Project restricted to 40 billable hours, but have to work tomorrow because we just have too much to do. Overworked and underutilized. Eff me.
Have a counselee and utilization is below target ~5%. She was told reduce billable hours for a month which is obv when looking at time report. Ok to mention this as explanation during Y/E? (Cont)
There's a lull in copy work across the agency right now. I know work ebbs and flows, but is there a point when i should start actually worrying about lacking billable work?
Impromptu hour and a half lunch requested by management. Count towards billable hours? Already at 12-hour days and not really wanting to tack on additional time at end of day
Just received an email the other day giving all staff an OT requirement for June.. kind of hard to get that many billable hours in when none of the work is available 🙄
For all tax associates and seniors, what are your billable hours per week expectations May-July? We just got told ours is 35+
Has anyone survived a large round of layoffs at their company? Very curious about how you navigated that brave new world.
Hi, any American art director/creative directors with backgrounds in user interface and award winning logo design portfolios that are also rockstar Cannes glass lion winning ninjas, MULTIPLE PENCILS, legally approved to work in both Catalonia and Mali? Must also know Adobe Shockwave.
You guys. 2 many nuggets. Can't keep up.
Hey everyone, I’m a First Year (Freshman) student at UofT trying to break into finance in Canada. If anyone can help refer me to any companies (like BGIS or Société Générale) that would be great. I’m trying to get in by application but that’s not cutting it anymore (I even walked in & handed a job portfolio of accomplishments), let’s 🙅♂️ gate-keep finance!
I am a first year Manager and making 122k. Am I way too low and not paid in the market range? I heard Deloitte Managers make a minimum of 150k going all the way upto 200k. Is it better to switch companies to get into that level?
Ever have just that ONE class that does not get the lesson like your other classes. I am exhausted 🤦🏾♀️
Everyone has that one male colleague
This will be my last post as McBee. Thanks for all the great memes. I'll be seeing some of you around, I'm sure ;) cheers
Got an invitation for Deloitte mini assessment centre (online) .There is a case presentation and a director interview in the schedule. Anyone got any pointers for any/all of the stages.
When we would start receiving hike letter ?
I'm a recent Senior Consultant hire at Deloitte Advisory with 100K base and 7K hiring bonus. Haven't received my yr 1 bonus, but they said "up to 20%". Lateral hire from industry. Never done consulting/advisory/professional services before. Where does that put me in comparison to others? Feels like it's middle of the road. But I've been wrong before.
Just got an offer from an alternative investment platform—any thoughts on 2 years of non-compete agreement, barring working for other alternative investment platforms?
IT audit folks, what are some of the good exit opportunities if you don't want to do IT audits your entire life?
Has anyone made the move from Big 4 Consulting to a platform tech company like Alteryx, UiPath, Celonis, etc? Any insights as to whether you’re happy with the transition?
Is PWC a good company? I got rejected today, so feeling a bit bad ? Is it worth it ? I already have offer from EY and Wipro
