I get really anxious when I don’t have much to do at work, I start worrying I’m going to get in trouble for being under utilized.. does anyone else ever experience this?
for federal projects that cap you at 40/week, do the leadership ever take this into account how it effects your utilization?
Was hired into a specific supply chain consulting field based on my major, yet they have me working in the PMO for a YEAR on this engagement. My skills are not being fully utilized. Advice?
Quick question, YE conversations are in the 3rd week of July for me, 85% is the utilization target and I'll be at or just above 84% by the time the conversations happen. Do you think it'll be held
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...
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
I am a senior with 40% utilization.AMA
What is the exact date on which utilization tracking for FY2018 started? I know it's March sometime. When does it end?
Had lower utilization this year than normal due to being rolled off and on different engagements with downtime in between. Nothing performance-related. Even though it was out of my hands (cont)
If our target utilization rate is 95% what is the actual rate wherein less than that, the firm actually lost money on me?
What is the longest you have seen someone with less than 50% utilization stay in a firm?
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower
How lenient are you with billing? Just saw a presentation showing the average utilization was over 95% at my mid sized consultancy and I swear I know so many people that barely have work. Like literally during the staffing calls everyone says they’re only 50% billable and are looking to take on more work.
What do you think it takes for a PPD to get a utilization bearing WBS for proposal work? I know it is rare...
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

Potential project lined up it I'm not big on local work. SM said transport would be expensed and food I'd pay for but get a per diem. Is he blatantly lying to me?
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat

Hi folks - my h1b is about to expire in early September. The extension is approved but I haven’t gotten it stamped yet. Is it true that I don’t necessarily need a stamping and can just go to another
What’s the London/UK insurance industry culture like? Considering an exit and want to know what I’d be getting into. Checked glassdoor but most reviews are for call centre type employees rather than head office. I’d post in exit bowl but that’s mostly US centric and figured some of you may have consulted within Financial Services too. My FS clients have always been Europe / MEA based so would appreciate the perspective.
I work at a mid tier firm and my average raise over 5.5 years in public accounting has been 8%. Then this past year my bonus was $5k. How does that compare to other firms?
TPG has an article that says Marriott Platinum Elite gets Gold United but I can only see Silver on the website. The article was back in March so I'm guessing the deal expired?
Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote). Currently an associate making cravath comp in a large city (not new DPW scale yet) but have been trying to move to a different market to be closer to family. New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?
Best movies for a sixth grade classroom! They’ve earned movie and popcorn and I have no idea what to play!

What can I expect the interview process at West Monroe to be like, particularly the case study? Heard great things about the culture, but how is comp for a SC in the M&A practice (HCOL)?
How do you know when it's time to leave consulting? I'm in a group I hate, on a project I hate, doing mind numbing work, and I have been badly delayed on every flight I've taken in the past month...
