Anyone here utilized an early professional mortgage? I’ve seen a few banks that offer them to attorneys, CPAs, etc that are looking to buy a home with low down payment. Just want to know what the catch is (obviously there has to be one but it’s not apparent from the websites). See link below for an example from Cadence Bank. BBVA does these as well. https://cadencebank.com/personal/mortgages/early-professionals-loan-program
Deloitte TS&A Manager utilization - provide yours for the performance year that just ended. I'll go - 74%
Deloitte USI Advisory Managers are expected to have 90% utilization. Is this the expectation in other big4 as well?
How busy are the Big4s in the public sector in Toronto and Canada overall? Any layoffs or are people fully utilized?
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?’
90% utilization target, have to take time off in December because firm now requires it, and let's not forget the whole "don't bill more than 45 hours per week" unsaid rule. Cont.
When will YTD utilization metrics be available on DNET for 2018? Right now it says there is no data available.

Context: Sr. Consultant up for promotion for second year in a row. My utilization is 140% plus non billable work. And I'm on the hook for delivery of 3 projects. A director who reports to the practice lead informed to my surprise that their team wants me to lead another project.
I spoke to him, his managers twice and told him 3 times that I cannot commit to it.
I get an email on Friday night that the engagement contd.
End of PY struggle is working 12 hr days consistently to meet utilization 😑 eat, sleep, gym, work: rinse and repeat.........
Does low utilization always mean PIP? Is there leniency when it is your first year with the firm?
What are your thoughts on the high utilization rate goals for SC/C/As? Seems like a terrible system to make junior practitioners accountable for what they have no control over
Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020. I had my offering leader schedule a call with me to notify that I have been rated a low performer because I had 46% utilization and mediocre firm contribution scatterplot. My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!
95% +Utilization, got a 4 of 5. (no raise, no bonus). I was benched last year due to awaiting my clearance (missed utilization) and got a 3 of 5 with a raise and bonus.
Is low utilization the employees fault ?
EY has staff at 94% utilization - is that high?

Went for a hair cut with a new person because my usual stylist no longer does hair. This was the first time with the new girl, but I've been going to the same place for years. It's been a while and I had tons of split ends & asked for a 4 inch trim to get it back to healthy. My hair is long, to my waist and usually I stand during cuts. She said no need.
When she was done, I should have known something was weird because I had to ask for the mirror to see the back. She cut 18 inches off.

All of us keep talking about GDP, economic growth etc. But where does it stop? The Earth has limited resources. We can't keep growing forever. We might sustain our generation, but looking at how we're exploiting every damn thing out there, don't think we'll have much left for our next generations (our kids & grand kids). Are we digging our own grave? Seems pretty obvious but honestly can't think of a solution. What do you guys think? Am I right? Maybe we start with having fewer kids?Going vegan?
Feeling very low today. Nothing in life feels worthwhile or balanced. Job, industry, visa status, family 😢
I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.
