Hi all, I’m looking to move in a mid size audit firm (RSM, GT other..). I am promoted to S2 in Big4. How are the hours in audit financial services ? Is it slightly better ? I’m utilized > 100% all year, averaging 60hr.
D - your thoughts on how adjusted utilization is viewed within the firm. Is that on par to client or way beyond consideration?
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Was hired into a specific supply chain consulting field based on my major, yet they have me working in the PMO for a YEAR on this engagement. My skills are not being fully utilized. Advice?
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.
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)
Do any firms not have utilization metrics?
Senior associates of PwC, what's your utilization? I want to know if I should panic about a low rating this year. I'm at 80% right now
That time when your partners start a utilization contest where for 2 weeks of crazy hours might get you a Starbucks gift card
Is utilization less important if the firm simply cannot sell enough projects to staff people on?
I love how people pride themselves with being unassigned or out or busy season ... My Utilization levels are still over 100.. Busy season until June ! #AuditLife
Is taking the sabbatical offered by pwc, career suicide... in a time when utilization matters so much?
Deloitte my S&A offer has 23 vacation days. Will I actually be able to use any of that? Does it count against my utilization? What’s the cultural expectation around using PTO?
Has anyone utilized WF brokerage account? Looking for an account where I could do both Mf/ETF as well as stocks and this seems to be a good option with low fees.
What would you do if you have way less clients than your peers? Do you wait until you are assigned more clients or speak up? I'm a high performer but not utilized to my fullest capacity.
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
Agency leaders my question for you is simple, what’s yo target metric for utilization of talent at your org? Talent being designer / developers / creatives.
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!

MBB 🐠 a few questions: 1) do you also often have these budget problem discussions at the client not being able to fund the next stage or do they know it‘s gonna be expensive? 2) do engagement consultants do BD in between projects or is it a dedicated acquisition team? 3) how much time do you spend on internal initiatives (and if that depends on the rank)?
