What's a normal range, just curious

like

If your utilization within the normal range for your peer group, it probably won't be considered. It can hurt you if it's much lower.

It's different for each level. C is 90%

If you hit your utilization metric, then I would SP. if you didn't hit your metric, then U.

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.

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?

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!
