If everyone is slaving away in public accounting and the hours suck, etc etc, how is everyone so stressed about utilization?
Just started at the firm a month and half ago and snapshots are already happening soon. How important are they? I’ve had pretty low utilization, so I’m kinda nervous as an experienced hire
How much utilization is "too much" utilization?
At your firm what’s the denominator on utilization? 2080? Or is it calculated after provided PTO, sick days, holidays, etc. (e.g. at 9 weeks of PTO/sick/holidays, would be 1720)?
Dammit...45 mins and still trying to submit time in Mercury ...Gold Rating to developers
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??
I work in the IC and, as many of you know, the security related paperwork lead-time between engagements can take months sometimes. Had super low utilization due to constant rotations to....
My specialty group is so dead my utilization is 18.7%. I've reached out to dozens of people and no one has work for me. Been here 8 months. I want to shoot myself for not taking the PwC offer.
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
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
Hi Bain 🐠, how does utilization look like for AAG guys? Any distinction in terms of Marketing Science and Data Science? Which one will give you more mileage, exposure, in your opinion?

I’m feeling like everyday I’m dreading opening my laptop. I feel overworked, tired, and under-appreciated. A lot of my colleagues have left consulting and this is making me feel sad as I was very close with many of them. Is this a sign that maybe it’s time to move on and explore new career options?
