What's everyone hoping to get for Christmas? I got my present early: five months of billable work to start off 2016.
this email though– "...busy season to be defined as 9/12 to 12/31. based on client needs, may extend to 3/31. seniors/staff 50-55 billable hours." bc 6 mo of BS should be acceptable... 🙋🏼🔫
Deloitte folks, what is your year to date client billable hours ? Disclose your level as well please.
If Donald trump works from Trump Tower two days a week, is he remote and WFH? As his client, I am not ok with that since his billable rate is really high.
It's 5 PM before the long break. Do you know where your billable hours are? Stay utilized my friend.
KPMG folks, if you log 8 hours as PTO on a given day and then also log billable hours on the same day, will that inflate your adjusted utilization %?
I hate that our time focus is on billable hours. Minimum 55 hours really means working at least 12 hours M-Th, 10 on Fri, and 6 during the weekend once you factor in G&A and and other random things.
2,158 hours contracted a year. Tax season: 55 hour week minimum with 90% billable time. You?
Is loyalty a thing in consulting? Project leadership has been offering billable hours from the markup even though there's not much to do. Would it be bad if I leave for other opportunities?
Is there a policy for charging billable hours on the weekend? Feel like I should be able to bill 1.5x+ for having to work on the weekend
Just had a SM call and ask to move over 2 weeks of billable work to a PRD code because the project is over budget. Just checked and this will put me just at 89% utilization for year end (cont.)
The anxiety doesn't stop. Project restricted to 40 billable hours, but have to work tomorrow because we just have too much to do. Overworked and underutilized. Eff me.
Does anyone count the time required to complete client specific expenses as billable time? It just took me 2 hours to complete 3 weeks worth of expenses!
There's a lull in copy work across the agency right now. I know work ebbs and flows, but is there a point when i should start actually worrying about lacking billable work?

Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Already exhausted and it's only Monday.... Those of you that have hit a year, how do you do it. My soul dies a little more each day.
Anyone here from Chicago Deloitte HC? Any thoughts on culture, project type, etc. would be much appreciated.
I wasn't born yesterday. If your face takes up 98% of the screen on Tinder I am instantly swiping left
What does everyone want to do after consulting? Role/company to make it interesting, not "industry".
How am I supposed to transition from that Thanksgiving spread to the client's shitty cafeteria food?
When you go out on Saturday night and come back at 3am and end up with a bunch of emails asking for more stuff due on Sunday EOD
When you tell your significant other you wish you were sleeping next to them, hang up, and then happily melt diagonally into a King sized hotel bed 👌🏼
The moment you realize you accidentally blocked your boss on your work phone. Good thing he pointed it out...
Any S& cohort salaries and bonus info yet?
