I was curious what other firms have set as their utilization goals for their different positions? Currently, everyone from staff to senior manager has a set goal of 90%.
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
Anyone else notice the spikes in BTC and ETH at the exact moment the federal government shutdown? Bad for my utilization (I’m federal) great for my portfolio
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
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)
What are firms utilization and sales expectations for manager? My sales for first year manager is 1m and utilization is 70%. Is this generally normal, lenient, or aggressive? I’m at a small boutique ~100 people
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
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.
EY, question about utilization. If we hit 40 chargeable hours for the week, does charging time to admin/auth-proj. impact utilization in any way? I’ve only been logging chargeable hrs in GTE...
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
How are Business/functional analysts utilized at your company? Or do you have product owners (scrum) or product managers instead?
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
Do adcoms negatively view short company stints? Are you allowed to leave them off your resume/application? Example: 5 YOE at application Company 1 (0.2 years) - left for +30% TC Company 2 (2.5 years) - left for promo & + 50% TC Company 3 (0.5 years) - left due to toxic culture Company 4 (1.8 years) - Current
I gained over 25 pounds over lockdown, went for drinks with colleagues for the first time since March 2020, and the very next day I had other colleagues messaging me on teams and dropping remarks about how they are walking a lot these days to drop COVID weight. It might be a coincidence but probably not. Feels like my weight was discussed a lot behind my back as no one else in the group of people that went out had gained weight.

Are there any Israeli fishes here that can share their perspective on how unionizing has affected the Big 4 in Israel? Currently this may be the only country where big 4 accountants have union membership & collective bargaining agreements, so I'm curious what the motivations were and whether you feel it's been worth it https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-ey-first-israeli-accounting-firm-to-sign-collective-labor-agreement-1001195205
Guys I know this question has been asked before, but just want to hear some thoughts on this. Is it worth it to go from one big 4 company (EY) to another (Deloitte) for consulting? The major factor is pay increase. The major down side is loss of people network. Thoughts?
I currently have multiple fully remote software engineering roles open - experience working with React/Node and other modern front end technologies is required - Brian@wtechco.com
Big 4 -> Software Sales? So I actually start in advisory with a diff b 4 firm tommorow as an experienced staff, I got contacted by a company that sells accounting software mostly close automation etc. they have big clients and got series D funding, I think I’d be a good fit but I don’t know how to judge these huge life decisions when they come so quick. I don’t HATE what I do now but I hate the cpa stuff and I think I might leave, thoughts?
I’m interviewing for BCG and had a principal reach out to me for a zoom chat. Is this normal for principals to reach out or is this a positive sign?
Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.

When there’s a receivable in a foreign currency, do you revalue it at the end of each accounting period? Or is the receivable going to stay at the fx rate it was originally recognized ? Are there any exceptions? I’m leaning towards the first but wondering if I’m missing something
