Everyone I reach out to is saying that things are slow during this time of the year and I am starting to get worried about my utilization. Is it true for all staffs?
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
How am I expected to keep 2 interns and a first year and the GDC fully utilized when I and the rest of my team barely have things to hand off.
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
Anyone else struggling with wfh during busy season? I have no way to understand productivity relative to other new hires and feel like i am under utilized
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
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 ?
EY Utilization.... what's your full Utilization YTD? Specifically interested in other managers or senior managers.
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.
Why do holidays count against utilization?
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Hi Bain 🐠, how does utilization look like for AAG guys? Any distinction in terms of Marketing Science and Data Science? Which one will give you more mileage, exposure, in your opinion?
How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.

Idk if its a generational thing but I hate when people at work call my cell unexpectedly. Can’t we just set up a zoom call?
For those who did the One Clubs “Mentor and Creative” program, do we put it as an internship with whatever agency or company that hosted us. So, for instance, if you were mentored by some Google CDs for 6 weeks to create an ad campaign that you pitched and might get produce, would you put in your resume or LinkedIn “Google internship.” Does it qualify as an internship cause I’ve seen multiple students put it as an internship.
I’m a bit late but, I’m trying to build my wfh setup, any suggestions for stand up desks / chairs/ etc?
For those with HOAs and community amenities, are they going to allow guests after June 15? We have a pool and gym in ours that are residents only for now but they haven’t announced opening up yet, so wondering if yours have. Ready to invite some friends over for a bbq!
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
Anyone else struggling with post-COVID fatigue and problems concentrating? My doctors mainly said to wait and take it easy. Anything else that worked for you guys?
Just joined Deloitte in July out of UG, but want to make move to MBB. Is it a good idea to start applying right away or do I need more experience before making the jump?
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?

Workday Financials Solution Architect salary at your firm? Trying to get an idea for negotiation
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Is there still a hiring freeze at deloitte?
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
Interviewing as a Finance Manager for a company halfway across the country. Relocation hasn’t been brought up yet. They know I’m out of state. Can I assume relocation will be offered since they didn’t say it wasn’t? Should I ask before going onto the final round of interviews? Company is owned by Fortune 500 company and has over $250 m in revenue. Also what could I expect to be included in the package? I’ll be a individual contributor.
