Not sure overall, but the large bench of last summer quickly went to zero. Can't staff anyone to save my life as we have been oversold and under staffed since Q4

@D5 which practice are you in? I'm always confused why our average utilization is so low when I've never gotten to spend more than a week or two on the beach...

like

DD it's because top performers stay staffed. Low performers still won't get staffed even in times of need if their reputation is poor, and the firm will carry them until they're counseled out

like

TS&A?

What is this even in reference to?

Ahh ok, cool, thanks

If only DD was the same

Holy moly!

@D4 not sure why that would be any more true in DD though vs SI/etc.

Apologies I did not mean to make a service line distinction, was speaking in general

At DD I have heard there aren't many projects being sold. In general I would expect util to be higher given the longer term engagements and large business software packages that TS&A doesn't have

Basically what D4 said.

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.

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?
