Deloitte be like:
Its unclear w/o score cards. Whats the utilization target for exam and nonexam taking seniors? Is that full or effective utilization?
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
Tech implementation folks, what is your utilization target (hrs/week)? How many hours do you actually work per week (incl. admin/non-billable work)?
I wish admin utilized Tier 1 supports with teachers. Smiles, appreciations and acknowledging ones efforts would do a great deal to boost morale and climate. I just don’t understand what that is so hard to do.
What's an appropriate utilization rate? Mine is 170% but I still feel like that's not enough 😕
1st year: barely involved, 50% utilized, got a 2. 2nd year: tried way harder, Pres of a national firm initiative, "added value to the firm", got a 3. Does Deloitte even want to retain employees?
I just started as a Consultant about 3 weeks ago and I’ve been having difficulty finding a project that utilizes my skill set. What can I if my company is having difficulty staffing me on a project? I feel bad that I’m not being utilized
Second year associate with below target utilization. Last year in the CRT, I was at tier 4, again because of a below expected utilization. Can I be fired this time? My snapshots on client are good tho
How did you process the emotions after being rolled off for the first time? I just got the news because there’s not enough work for me. Is it normal to feel a bit…abandoned? My utilization is over 100%, so I’m not too concerned, and I could use some downtime with friends and family. But it still feels kind of suck to be let go for whatever reason.
Hello fishes, I joined deloitte USI a month ago. No project assigned, RM keeps saying he is looking into it. How negative will it be on my utilization and performance ratings if this carries on for long. I am kind of of worried now. Any advice on this? Deloitte USI
What are the digital tools that all the big 4 utilized? I know pwc we use tableau and alteryx. Is EY and Deloitte using the same tools?
Hi all, I’m in a role where I feel under utilized and leadership is primarily male and feel I’m outgrowing it. Does anyone know of Sales roles or companies where they feel more of a sense of equality and inclusion?
Am I understanding utilization rate correctly? It’s chargeable time over total time? Charged 40 hours and had 10 hours non-charge so my utilization is 80%? If so, wouldn’t it benefit me to understate non-charge hours so my utilization is higher since they only really care about chargeable time anyways? Charge 40 hours still but only put 5 hours non-charge for utilization to be 89% instead of 80%? Or am I misunderstanding how utilization works?
What will be in hand salary for below breakup? I have declared House rent as 22k/month, 80c is full utilized to 1.5lakhs, 50k nps and around 15k health insurance.
