How's your utilization?
I've been placed on deals but randomly they get slow, client doesn't upload or I'm told to be mindful of my billing when I am on a deal.
Is this an issue for anyone else?

Unfortunately

I’m on a few deals but have billed literally 0 hours this week just because none of them are currently “active”. But being told not to ask for more work because any one of these, or all of them, could take off at any second.

And they will tell you your utilization is too low you need to ask for more work

40-60 billable hours

Mm firm (HL, A&M, FTI)

I mean if someone is telling me I can’t book availability and tell deployment, that’s going to the client. You want me on standby you’re paying for it

that is so good. We have to charge it to administration code when the deal is not active.

How do you delegate tasks to team members that are not a qualified for your projects In regards code review and code creation. I feel as though I am doing all the work on my project and all of the other contributors are either unable or unwilling to participate and I am taking on a larger work loads than I should. Do I just delegate the task and if they mess up it’s on them not me? Should I raise to management? Also how have other consultants effectively managed, other same level consultants?

Hi Fishes ,

I have 5 YOE experience in total and 13 LPA CTC.
I shifted from Unix to Data Science 3 years back. My current org. is aware of this change.
I always did great and was appreciated by clients. But my company still considers me as a fresher and pays me less - as they are aware of my previous exp.

I don't have any issues with my current org - it has great WLB, client is very supportive and permanent remote role. The only problem is my pay.
Any suggestions for my problem?

The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.

Project management was never something I was interested in. I went to school for marketing and spent 4 years in a operations management role. I’ve spent 6 months in my current role and have recently considered a career in project management.

My question is - is there good money in it? Work culture and satisfaction are important yes but I have a family and goals and money is definitely a motivator. Is project management a good route?
