my partner always says you have to to reach out for work everyday when available and blames low utilization on the staff level when we have a dedicated resource manager. Is this industry standard?
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
What happens if you don’t meet utilization targets in a year? I switched from audit to advisory and have been here 2 months and my billable hours are way less than I was expecting (avg 30 a week). I’ve had good feedback on my projects and ask for more work in my down time, but the change of pace from when I was in audit is stressing me out.
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
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
My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Agency leaders my question for you is simple, what’s yo target metric for utilization of talent at your org? Talent being designer / developers / creatives.
GT NY Folks- Tax A1 here, any insight on round tables for first year’s? People have said they generally never fire A1’s, is that true? Utilization is low so a little concerned.
Expecting in few months and have the option to opt out of performance eval this yr.Have really low/negligible utilization, I did everything I could but could not get staffed. How will this affect me?
Utilization QTNA. If I’m on a call for an hour and multitasking doing other work during that hour — do I bill one hour or two?
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?’
What is difference between "Vehicle Maintenance Allowance " and "Car Allowance"? I have both components in my CTC breakup under basket of allowances. Can any of these be somehow utilized for reducing tax liability?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
Any recommendations on best ways to track current and near-term (3-6 weeks) team utilization across a group of 100 or so working on multiple projects at the same time? TIA
Poll Question: which consultant would you rather staff or hire and why? A. Consultant who has worked with the same client for two straight years, above target utilization. B. Consultant who has worked with 8 different clients over two years, above target utilization.

Has anyone ever tried anything like this and got a positive result?

I got a mid year review this year. Does that mean I am eligible for a promotion? Does Deloitte have mid year promotion/ will it be effective next June?
How long should you work at a firm before you start looking for opportunities? I’ve heard it’s wise to wait until a promotion otherwise you get the stigma that you’re a job hopper. Also, what’s the minimal time you can work on a place and put it on your resume?
