Hi I’m currently in the reserve unit. And have an AT coming up next month for 2 weeks. And due to the unpredictable economy environment. Do you think if KPMG will lay off people has low utilization (military leave) and average/below average performer?
Does this help utilization or what
What are some utilization (billing hours) targets out there for roles with direct reports? If lower than individual contributors, do staffing levels reflect this? I.e. target is 65% billable, but still staffed at 40+ hours
McK 🐟: Which holidays does the firm observe in the US, and what utilization expectations are there for associates?
Worried I didn't deliver on Impact Day. Fences I painted were only OK. 1 year C, strong 3 YE, all 2 PEs, and good utilization. Should I be concerned? Time to start looking @ other firms/options?
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
People on here are talking about billable hours and utilization... are those things that are tracked on an individual basis? We do it as a firm aggregate and thought that was the norm, but seems to be that it might be tied to specific people at other firms?
I'm non compliant on CPE by a lot, when is the cutoff date to become current? June 30 or is it the same time that utilization is cut off?
Are your consulting firms having a shortage of projects/studies? (Y/N) Has utilization rate dropped drastically? (Y/N) % of consultants on beach/bench? (%) Should we anticipate widespread CTL/layoffs? (Y/N) Which firm are you from? (xxx)
Is 85% a good YTD utilization rate?
Worth pursuing business development as an experienced analyst going into senior? Its something I'm pretty good at but it seems like at my level youre mostly evaluated on utilization...
What is the exact date on which utilization tracking for FY2018 started? I know it's March sometime. When does it end?
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
My dad is turning 65 soon and yesterday he told me he’s super unhappy at his job bc he’s not getting promoted. He feels like his talents are not being utilized. I feel for him but he’s so close to retirement and he’s the sole breadwinner for him and my mom (brother and I offered support but they decline). Has anyone been in a similar situation? I feel like he will get discouraged with his job search if he doesn’t hear back from places and will be even more unhappy. Anyone have any leads on (con)

Friday shower thought: Have you ever thought that your “high” salary is actually not that high? For example, if I make 200k a year but then work nights and weekends (80-100 hours/week), that means that my hourly compensation is not that great.
