For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
Will the inability to speak the local language fluently in a country like Germany or Japan definitely impact utilization negatively below manager level?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
If you are on an FWA, do you need to meet your FWA utilization hours every week? I.e I am 75% so do I need 30 charge plus whatever admin hours to mercury? I am talking to my people consultant and she seems to think so. In a job that is highly seasonal, how is this possible??
When does fy18 utilization start? May or July?

my partner always says you have to to reach out for work everyday when available and blames low utilization on the staff level when we have a dedicated resource manager. Is this industry standard?
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?

Deloitte be like: Your safety is our #1 priority.....but so is utilization becau$e year end is around the corner
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
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??
AFS 🐟, what are salary and bonus ranges at levels 8-6 in the cleared space? Also, what are the typical utilization and BD expectations? Thanks in advance.
GT NY Folks- Tax A1 here, any insight on round tables for first year’s? People have said they generally never fire A1’s, is that true? Utilization is low so a little concerned.
What are peoples’ thoughts on crypto currency - will be utilized or just a fad? Do people on here currently own them?
Do principals also have utilization goals? Can they just choose to bill 0 hours on project and work “for free”?
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
Recent graduate (class of 21) from the UW business school. I came across an open FT associate position at Strategy&’s deal strategy team and was wondering if anyone from S& would be willing to chat?

I’ve been prepping for a couple of months now and would really appreciate the help/opportunity! Would send over credentials but not sure how! PwC Thanks!

Has anyone had experience with a biting toddler? My kid is the daycare biter (21 mo) - he never bites us or his older sisters so it’s not been a behavior we’ve seen at home since he was about 12 mo. It seems like sharing toys has been the trigger lately, but today he just walked up to a kid and bit them! We’re at our wits end and stressed out waiting for the phone to ring for another early pickup. We role play sharing at home and practice using our words. Is there anything else we can be doing?
Looking to start some advisory consulting for a small Systems Integrator that I have worked previously when with a larger firm previously. Looking for contract templates that I could leverage as a starting point. Legal Zoom or other options. Welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
Curious to hear thoughts and stories about growing within a firm when you’re in a niche area. I am in a specialty area which although unique will never be as large as many other practices. I enjoy what I do but I don’t see doing it for the rest of my career. How do you pivot into a “bigger” or different role? Would love to hear about your experiences.
Got my Salary Account in HDFC, not kidding, entering the bank and getting out was mere 20 minutes. That was super cool. Like they say, the first impression of the last impression. No papers nothing, all online. I atleast expected them to ask for a passport size photo, not even that, Awesome experience. Kudos to HDFC.

This big 4 always carry tapes to measure your performance. 2. I recently joined a witch company and here are my inputs A. Latest tech stakes but slow pace of work B. No long working hours (gov job)
Supply Chain (in office) at Amazon, yay or nay?
I was at a job for only about 8 months because of a Covid-related restructuring. I wasn’t fired, but the role responsibilities materially changed so I left. How do I notate / message this on my resume?
Usually I try to live in the moment, but other times things come to mind from the past that make my life feel like it could be a soap opera. For example, I crushed on a guy from school for a few years, and one night as a young adult, found us both drunk alone in my apartment. A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂
