Hey managers and above, does anyone evaluate/look at utilization at the beginning of the fiscal year for staff and seniors? Or does it get evaluated only near end of year?

Curious to know...

I’d argue that utilization is scrutinized more at the beginning of the year - don’t want to dig an early hole that the practice cannot exit.

They look the whole year and identify people with issues since low utilization often means there's a performance problem

All year. Mgrs and above at least in Deloitte can look at your hours from a dashboard. And the resource mgrs send them weekly reports

Joined Deloitte recently. PDM model.
Couple days ago found out that PTO not counted towards utilization.
I need to go to my home country and get married this December.
I don’t think I can bill more than 40 hours.
So people do not take vacation/PTO in PDM model? Is changing job the only option or there is some other way. Please advice.
Thanks.

Thinking of going for Director this year but also going on Maternity Leave in November for 5 months. Terrible timing I know. BUT I've already met Director sales goals and utilization will be avg for manager. I'm at the top level for Manager so can't progress any further unless I go for promotion.... Thoughts on going for it? Nervous about having a new baby and being a new Director (if I get it).

A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price.

I started with Deloitte as SC in May, since then I was staffed on a project for a while. The project has ended now. I am on bench and my utilization is around 35%.

How long do I have until Deloitte starts taking notice/action regarding low utilization.
