— also work life balance and Utilization prospective?
Junior here. I’m currently 117% utilized (which I know may not be a lot to many ppl…) but I feel i am nearing capacity and cannot take on more work. I see all the time people say “dont make the mistake of not saying no to work early on.”
When does that apply? How do you say no? I don’t want to make a mistake that has me billing 2300+ a year, but I also don’t want to look bad. My sweet spot is 2050 hours, if i can help it.
What's this b.s. about 50hr utilization target in advisory? Is the business doing bad and they expect us to make up for it?

For those of you who went audit to FDD - do you think eating time is more or less of a thing than what you experienced in audit. Personally - I feel like I eat way more time in FDD and get so aggravated when my utilization is around 100% and the firm makes it seem like I’m working 9-5 every day. I know it’s my own fault but given the increased billing rates and overall unpredictability in schedule just curious as to others experiences.
I just found out that people bill more than 8 hours in a day to help with utilization (ie. submitting 8.5 or 9 hours as a standard day). Is this common practice?
To my GT folks, anyone else here annoyed on the new FTO request form sent out today. I think the target utilization is the one that annoyed me the most.
Anyone from Bangalore? Have you utilized or do you know of any leading maid agencies? If else, any other recommendations to find good maids please? We lost a key member of our family due to Covid sadly and unfortunately, left with decreasing support and aging folks
Is anyone familiar with the Senior Manager bonus structure at Deloitte? What is the typical bonus range? And what metrics are they judged on (assuming managed revenue, sales, utilization)
Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020. I had my offering leader schedule a call with me to notify that I have been rated a low performer because I had 46% utilization and mediocre firm contribution scatterplot. My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!

Surviving Non-Renewal: who else has had their contract not renewed at the end of the school year? How did you cope? Are you still teaching?
Q for CDs. In your career as you moved up - have you had more success getting placed with a third party recruiter vs just contacting agencies directly? I guess the third option is getting a contact at an agency to pass you along. And is it normal to be in touch with seemingly 18 diff recruiters at once since they all have different connections? Trying to figure out where to put most of my already depleted energy. Thanks. 😵💫
