Why is it that anytime I’ve gotten on a proposal, those asking for help have given me a non-billable code? Is that time counting towards my utilization or am I missing something?
Half a year at EY as a business transformation consultant. Ive basically been benched from day 1 and have had sporadic bursts of mainly internal audit work. My utilization was sitting just below 30% and I am struggling to find work somehow. I was a marketing major and I dont feel like I really get what consulting is all about. Should I find a different job or stick it out?
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 heard at Andersen Tax they publish everyone's utilization to the office and highlight the ones who didn't work enough. Is this true? I was thinking about jumping over there after this busy season but if that would be a dealbreaker for me.
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
Does anyone have experience transitioning from bedside nursing to Utilization Review? Most of the positions I’ve seen require previous UR work to even be considered. I tried talking to my current employer about cross trading and was told they won’t train anyone to those positions. TIA.
Just had a terrible year professionally - became a new mom, but couldn’t travel once I got out of maternity, missed utilization and tanked at year end. Got $0 /$0 comp. I am feeling so low and
Finished my first busy season but my utilization is still 50%. Office is kinda over staffed so I just can't get enough work to boost it up. What should I do
Hadn’t noticed this sub before, and most of the threads are old so thought I’d ask a follow up - how has everyone been handling parenting with public accounting? I’ve got a toddler and my wife is an accountant (industry), and we only have a few immediate family in the country- but they have health concerns. Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.
Team was laid off. I was moved to a different service line. New service line manager salary is 10-20% higher than my current salary. No performance based raises this year at my firm. My utilization is low as I’m spending time getting caught up. Glad to still have a job but should I bring up a salary adjustment? Current plan is to wait until my utilization is on par with the rest of the team.
This is convoluted. I knew two staffs, staff A was way better then staff B. Staff B got promoted and A didn't. From what I gather they have similar utilization, and staff A has better reviews.
To my GT folks, anyone else here annoyed on the new FTO request form sent out today. I think the target utilization is the one that annoyed me the most.
At your firm what’s the denominator on utilization? 2080? Or is it calculated after provided PTO, sick days, holidays, etc. (e.g. at 9 weeks of PTO/sick/holidays, would be 1720)?
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
I am a M3 at EY, and did not get promoted this year because of utilization issue. They offered me a higher rating instead. How likely to move directly as a SM or Director at other Big 4s?
Got promoted recently along with one of my male colleagues. We both were at same base before, however, he was given 18% increment where as I got only 10%. My utilization, performance rating and all other metrics are either at par with him or higher. I raised my comp for review and have a process underway. I feel the data points for my male colleague are very relevant for the case but do not want to throw him under the bus during the review. How do I handle this?
I got offer with Deloitte USI and Robert Bosch. I'm confusion which one to choose? Any Suggestion ??
Which cloud solution do you think has the best potential for growth - job wise? AWS - GC - Azure? I’m looking to start learning a solution for exist but don’t know which one I should focus on
Really struggling today. My boss has a practice of humiliating me in front of colleagues for no reason and then saying things like “I can’t control how you interpret my comments” and “hopefully you won’t be too sensitive about this.” Aside from GTFO of there, I need some tips on how to deal while I’m looking for other opportunities. I’m extremely angry, sad, and unmotivated. I work really hard and care about my performance and to receive such verbal abuse really gets me down.
