Do airline bathrooms average the highest utilization of any public bathrooms? Every time I go in its wall to wall w dudes dropping heat. Ladies is this the same for you?
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.
Serious question: how do you "become" a top performer in a company? I get why some are viewed as rock stars or go-getters, but not how they do it or drum up the top-level support for it. Whenever I press to kickstart initiatives or push in a certain direction, the leadership is never interested in the actions or ideas. Instead, we just get told to bill hours and keep our utilization high. It's demoralizing how there is no support or interest in people that try to develop new areas or initiatives
When do utilization rates reset at PwC?
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 think we need to expand utilization metrics into audit sabermetrics. Monthly reports showing: Average expletives per audit Review notes per workpaper Average cry time per day What others are good?
How can utilization encourage efficiency? I have a 30hr code and I finished the work in 5hr. If I charge 5, the write up gives credit to the partner and my utilization suffers.
What is adjusted utilization?
Tips for consolidating credit cards ? I use at least 4 cards, it's hard to stay on top of the deadlines for payments and utilization. I use Mint and Mint Bills currently.

How to keep AWOL partners from taking you down with them when you can't start/submit time sensitive work bc you couldn't get a greenlight? Can't exactly add "not my fault" to my signature block
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
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?
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.
Looking for neighborhood recs in Seattle? I’ll be there for about two months in early Fall. I enjoy access to light hiking and city walks - I’m aware I’ll likely have to drive out for a good weekend hike. I’ll have a road bike to zip around as well and am just looking for the best “Seattle experience” that I can reminisce when I get older. All that being said, COVID is still going to be around, so while I do want to be in the city, I don’t think the densest part of downtown would be ideal. Thx!
