Hi everyone. I just got my NY RN license reinstated and I’m excited to explore. I recently relocated from GA. I have been with my company for the 16 years doing Inpatient Utilization review. I’m ok leaving if the opportunity presents itself. I have to update my resume. Am I still marketable? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
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...
Hey guys, happy Monday. Good news. My time sheet for this week is at almost 30 hours already. My utilization will bring great honor to my firm. So stoked. Seriously so happy..... Lolz nah imma quit.
Does anyone have the utilization goals for tax at deloitte by level? Are there defined benchmarks to meet?
Worried I didn't deliver on Impact Day. Fences I painted were only OK. 1 year C, strong 3 YE, all 2 PEs, and good utilization. Should I be concerned? Time to start looking @ other firms/options?
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".
Advisory utilization targets just moved up? The "relaxed" business is becoming more like DC withought the change in salaries. Well played 👏👏
So do we assume after today's comp call that an Associate/Senior in a struggling practice will get VC if barely hitting adjusted utilization goal?
In GPS HC and giving birth in August - really want tot all to someone about the more tactical things like utilization when I return in February how does maternity leave work with that? How do I report my LOA in advance etc?
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?
Are utilization targets realistic given the amount of admin BS we also need to do e.g. Independence, R&Q, documentation, expenses and timesheets etc? End up overworked and overstressed
How much does utilization matter for year end once you've met the target? E.g. if target utilization is 85% but I'm at 105%, will this 20% additionally help? If so, how much does it differentiate you?
Those managers and above, if you have a sold newly promoted senior with good FY17 utilization but his FY 18 utilization so far is around 60%, what would you think?
So my friend at PwC said they’re having “utilization concerns” and think it might negatively impact them come EoY… here’s my question - why do firms track this if staffing ultimately has your fate? I don’t think we track this, which makes sense to me because staffing says “hey you’re going to be doing X for date Y-Z.” How can you benchmark people on something driven by business demand?
What would you do if ... You have 4 Weeks of complete free paid time off with no project commitment or utilization impact???
Does it always make sense to max out your HSA? I have ~$6k parked there now as a healthy 28 yo with virtually no healthcare utilization
As long as you keep your utilization up is it possible to use all your PTO as a BA and still get a 1?

Do you all spend much time and money furnishing your apartment? Just moved into a new place and I'm torn. I'm never there but at the same time it'd be nice to have a cozy refuge to come home to.
Working in Tokyo and the only American/consultant. Unlimited expense account. Consulting lottery?
Had the worst date ever . May be eating out as a consultant has spoilt me. I am about to order and my date says well that's too expensive . Can we order something cheaper? I said I m paying .. FU

Coworker claimed to get drunk from her penne a la vodka for lunch and took the rest of the day off... Did not know that was possible.
What does bench life look like for you? For me a typical day looks like this 9 am- sign in and check emails 930-11 : look for a new job 11-2 lunch and nap 2-3 : sometimes meetings, mostly begging people for billable work 3-4:30 - proposal work if I have it or more job hunting 5-9pm family time and dinner 10-3am - netflix, videogames, cry myself to sleep
Strategy projects are highly sought after but tiring as hell..wtf…finally got what I wanted but I feel so burnt out. Any advice on how to excel as an analysts/associate on a first pure strategy project?
@McKinsey fish - how did you make it through the interview process? I'm not sure how to tackle all of the prep material out there and I'd really like to know what you did to set yourself apart? Any and all other help would be super appreciated!!!
Who's a SME on turkey carving here? Looking for a rockstar that can help me clean up this deliverable that I need to get out EOD.
I "need you to take this up a level but make it more specific" - what haunts me at night
Deloitte people. I confirm layoffs of 4 ranked individuals and this year it's been hard rankings. Many 3s forced into 4. I was on the calls. Beware. Not trying to scare. Sharing facts.
Getting feedback to "smile more" makes me want to throw my laptop thru a window&quit. Go ahead and tell me I'm overreacting or being a special snowflake but a guy would not 👏get👏that👏feedback.
What's the typical salary analysts who get promoted to consultant? I've heard a few figures and beginning to think they low balled me as a direct hire consultant
