Got offer from BCG for ECT. Read numerous comments about ECT being not attractive compared to Generalist track. Also heard challenges about billability/utilization. Any views/ guidance appreciated!
Hi! I’m doing some research on employee benefits (medical insurance, 401k, HSA/FSA, commuter benefits) and was hoping to connect with People specialists or HR professionals in the comp & benefits space. I’m trying to better understand any pain points or challenges you might face with utilization/enrollment. Anyone interested in connecting? Thank you!
Has anyone used Tableau or other BI platforms to show metrics on your teams utilization. Certain key fields that helped or maps charts that were visually appealing?
I know there are variations of this thread, but what is Alvarez & Marsal target comp for a Manager in CPI if you hit say ~90% utilization? Is that 140k base + 50% bonus? Or higher?
I wish admin utilized Tier 1 supports with teachers. Smiles, appreciations and acknowledging ones efforts would do a great deal to boost morale and climate. I just don’t understand what that is so hard to do.
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?
Have any respiratory therapists found jobs OTHER than being a clinical RT? I want to possibly change careers, but I am finding that a lot of jobs (clinical liason, utilization review, etc) want you to have a nursing degree, not a respiratory degree. I feel like as an RT we are limited to jobs.
Alvarez & Marsal How does comp work at Alvarez & Marsal? I know bonus is based on utilization / collections, but how does that really work when you're executing against a SOW with a certain amount of hours budgeted. If I'm only budgeted at 70%, how do you increase your utilization to increase your bonus.
I am working my ass off for this weekend but kinda like it because my utilization rate is going up....
Is it normal to be “available” during the summer as an a2 going into a3, little nervous about utilization.
What does the market look like for M&A consultants in the next two years? I'm talking to a firm that has 90%+ utilization so they have open roles. Changing companies in a time like this appears risky though. What is everyone else seeing?
When you find out your peers are compensated more even though your rating and utilization is higher :(
What is the minimum utilization criteria followed at SDC?
There are people from my team with utilization in range of 30% to 50% and got promoted to manager 1 and sa2 respectively.
I have almost 75% utilization, so wondering why work so much. Thinking of aiming for 55% utilization this time.
Is it possible or someone on Deloitte Advisory with low utilization to move to a role in Deloitte Consulting or is the utilization part automatically kills all chances?
Anyone know if I could get Capital One Venture X? Or if not recommend a good travel credit card?
Currently have Quicksilver and Savor One
Credit scor: (FICO- 735, Creditwise- 752)
Oldest credit line: 1 year 5 months (😔)
Available credit: About 22k
Credit utilization: about 3%
Are others seeing their work slow down? It’s been a pretty dramatic halt for me. I thought maybe it was a me problem, but others in my group admitted they are also slow. I’ve been consistently 110-120% utilized, but I’ve only billed 22 hours this month. I’m in fund formation.
Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh

A partner (whom I don’t work for and barely know) followed up on a menial task, and when I replied asking for more info, he said, “I’ll give it to you tomorrow, but I thought this was done a month ago.” Wait…you mean, you thought it was done a month ago when I billed 310 hours and 6 associates left our group and we’ve only managed to replace 3 of them?

I seem to keep working with senior associates that ask me to do every little thing (draft two sentence replies to emails, make minor changes to docs that would take 2 seconds, etc.) I’m mid-level and I get there is a difference in billing rates. But it’s getting to the point where I’m having to drop what I’m doing every 30 minutes. Is this normal?

Congratulations for the offer. In my understanding, if you don't want to sell, ECT can be great. You can actually build a personal brand, be sought after without having to think about sales. Needless to say, a strong internal network helps you to build that brand and maintain your billability
Not worth it. Former ECT here.
Thanks for feedback. Can I dm you?
