Any tips on writing a solid story to support promo from C to SC? Great client work, good firm initiatives and met utilization, but worried about proving “performing at next level”
My weight positively correlates with my utilization.
Possible to get GSAP with 2,2,3 in YEs? Had all 2s the past year but utilization killed me.
matched with a senior manager at my firm on tinder, really been really hitting it off well. should i ask for a charge code for this? need more utilization
Had an interview with another consulting firm and the interviewer goes “Yeah I worked 90 hours this week and have 200% utilization but my team is SO. NICE. Everyone is great here” ...... lol pass
Interesting. Let’s see if the uptick In cases continues to drive an uptick in hospitalizations and then in fatalities. Depends on how many of the cases are incidental or in very young people not prone to severe cases. But either way, look at the hospital capacity utilization figures! This is the untold story. Were we bending the curve to avoid unnecessary deaths due to overcrowded hospitals, or were we bending the curve to buy time for treatments and vaccine, or just to slow fatalities?
So if I already had the conversation with my counselor about not getting promoted this time....does this mean my utilization technically doesn't matter until FY18 in July?
What’s business been like for everyone? Still high utilization and most consultants booked on projects?
Fractional staffing problems? My practice seems to have an issue where consultants are staffed across multiple projects to meet their utilization quota idea how to avoid this problem as a consultant?
Deloitte Fish when is the end of the performance year? How important is it to hit utilization even if you are in a niche area/skill set?
Feel insecure everyday, learning new, not being the best/expected, self learning did not count in utilization, worry on peer pressure, losing hairs. WHY
My therapist just referred to the job as an abusive relationship. This is one of the more intense projects I’ve been on in my 4 years - not the most, but has been going for 6 months billing 120% utilization. Yeah, that checks out.
Thoughts on under reporting hours? I’m an analyst and report 45 hrs/week regardless of hours worked to ‘help the team with budgeting’. It impacts my utilization but not sure if that’s just the consulting way?
Does having higher Standard Utilization helps in annual performance/promotions?
I am currently having 108% but unsure about how it will help me.
Genuine answers please :)

How’s the job market these days? I stopped looking since March. Wondering if consultants are still making good exists.
Got punched by GoodRx and left bag holding. I’m trying to resist reacting by selling, as I hope 30 is the floor.
