If you have perfect snapshots in a promotion year, high utilization, extra curriculars, etc., but don't have much visibility to the lead partner of a group, can you still not be promoted?
for federal projects that cap you at 40/week, do the leadership ever take this into account how it effects your utilization?
How do I tell my coach that my depression and crying half the day is why my utilization is lower than expected :( she set up a meeting for tomorrow and I have anxiety
Over a month on the bench and all of my leads have fell through. I'm a campus hire (started last fall) but still worried about my utilization. Any tips on how to expand my internal network even more?
My utilization is 90% but all of my clients are small jobs. Does that look worse than someone who works on the larger, higher revenue generating jobs with all else equal (utilization/performance)?
How do you teach yourself to care less? I am always stressed and over worked while other seniors on my team are 50% utilized don't care and still get promoted. I also want to have the idc attitude..
Anyone have an app or Excel spreadsheet they use to keep track of utilization? We just switched systems and our new system doesn’t give us a real time balance of our utilization rate (cont)
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
Someone explain to me how this works: if I have really good snapshots with performance differentiators for almost every snapshot I have, but my utilization is below the goal for my level. I’m asking..
Staffed most of the year but low utilization (<40%) due to partners asking team not to bill. I have read other posts that say to ask for non-charge code when this happens. If projects are (continued)
Utilization above 80%, $1M managed revenue and now $700k sales credit @ 1/2 year. Bringing my A game in '17!
Is utilization low in most firms right now? Is it efficiency that is causing this or a slow downturn in the economy causing businesses to close?
Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
What do you think it takes for a PPD to get a utilization bearing WBS for proposal work? I know it is rare...
Quick question, YE conversations are in the 3rd week of July for me, 85% is the utilization target and I'll be at or just above 84% by the time the conversations happen. Do you think it'll be held
Currently on the beach and decided to go to Paris with my girlfriend..bloop I literally am not utilized for the past 2 months - might as well make the best of it 🙌
How lenient are you with billing? Just saw a presentation showing the average utilization was over 95% at my mid sized consultancy and I swear I know so many people that barely have work. Like literally during the staffing calls everyone says they’re only 50% billable and are looking to take on more work.
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower

Debate: who is the B1 of the B4?? 🤔 I have respect for all as I work with them all but would love to hear opinions
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
What is the average bonus for an associate?
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
I never thought I’d say this - but I have cancelled my trip to the Modex industry show in Atlanta next week out of an abundance of caution over coronavirus related to elderly relatives.

S& fishes, if I want to do Pharma & LS strategy, what is the role I should apply to (as a Sr. Associate)? The only role I see open in PLS is in Ops Strategy - does this mean only working on operations in this space? What is the keyword I need to look for - Enterprise strategy? Corp strategy? Or does it not matter as long as I choose the right vertical? Completely unrelated, can anyone tell me if they accept H4 EAD's if the role is not eligible for visa sponsorship? TIA!
I never thought I’d be posting something like this here, but here we are so I must be desperate. I feel more lonely in my relationship than I did before it. My SO is great, but whenever he goes out I feel so crushingly alone. Can’t tell whether it’s COVID or a serious issue.
