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)
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)?
Thoughts on utilization? Why is this metric so important in the consulting world, beyond ratings/internal contribution? Should this not be the responsibility of the firm rather than individuals?
Utilization rate this time of year?
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
What is the longest you have seen someone with less than 50% utilization stay in a firm?
What do you think it takes for a PPD to get a utilization bearing WBS for proposal work? I know it is rare...
What is the exact date on which utilization tracking for FY2018 started? I know it's March sometime. When does it end?
Does charging time to “holiday” lower utilization or is it backed out of the denominator?
Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?
Newly started. Why is everybody talking about "utilization"? Is it related to my personal performance rating? How should I use it effective?
Ever since Risk Assurance busy season ended, I feel like I’ve been kind of coasting. I’m still getting all my work done but my utilization is slipping. With CRTs coming up, how worried should I be?
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..
Got extremely good reviews for this past LEAD cycle but question if I’m going to hit utilization goals for this fiscal year. Is this a problem or an issue that will affect me?
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
Does anyone have a recommendation for a great mentoring platform/software. Looking to use to match participants as well as manage multiple mentoring programs. Thanks
Potential agency boomerang having a hard time making a decision to stay brand-side or go back. Need some advice! Do I leave the brand, being "the client," fun work, great WLB, as well as the most toxic work environment I've ever experienced and meh pay? Do I go back to agency lead a new team with significant responsibilities, forget about WLB, sell my soul alongside smart people, get great pay and benefits? PS: I'm a mom and brand-side for 5 years. What do I need to know!? Thank you!
MBB, would you be in consulting for the long term and try to make partner if it wasn't for the travel and impact on family life?
Feeling burnt out and fed up and it’s not even busy season. Can’t quit because I need this job for money and didn’t get any offers while interviewing 😩 just venting
Rant: The job search is super draining. Seeing people getting interviews and offers to higher caliber firms makes me wonder what’s wrong with me. I have referrals and wrote the best resume I could.
Hotel bartender just told me that he's out of Glenlivet because I drank all of it last evening 😑
Hey Can someone help me land an internship at any big company? I'm currently in my final year at one of the top commerce colleges in India. Interned at one financial company and one govt company. Would really help me for my placements Thanks
PwC Inside comments will now have your name showing. Conveniently right after all there were hundreds of negative comments about lost benefits with no official response.
What is BDO benefits like at the manager level?
Are there any agencies in NY or LA that are actively hiring for SAE / AM roles? Any agencies that I should stay away from?
Anyone know anything about Marakon? Post MBA Comp? Culture? I tried the search function and got nothing. I checked Glassdoor but seems like all of the entries are written by the company itself.
I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating. I said it was fine, but the more I think about it the less I’m open to relocating. I now have an offer from them, is there anyway to negotiate no relocation? They are remote until mid year 2021. I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.
