How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
If you join in the middle of the year, does your utilization get adjusted? If so, when does it show up on Staffit? I've been here since may and have been utilized since day 3, yet TOD shows me at 58%
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’m currently on PIP b/c low utilization and “Performance trends” during my first pregnancy. I’m pregnant again, I was not promoted due to PIP, does that mean I won’t be eligible for paid mat. leave?
I work in the IC and, as many of you know, the security related paperwork lead-time between engagements can take months sometimes. Had super low utilization due to constant rotations to....
At PwC(S&) are evaluations (career roundtables) driven primarily by utilization? How much do reinvest and snapshots play?
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.
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?
Have been over 100% utilized YTD until rolling off 3 weeks ago. My practice's leads in the pipeline keep evaporating and now the closest possible engagement is at least 2-3 weeks out. (Cont)
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
Partner keeps offering to help (which I appreciate) but every time she tells me she drafted something it’s always missing the details that take the longest to track down, request, confirm, or otherwise figure out.
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...
What to prefer an why: 150k plus benefits at EY or 200k plus benefits at Wipro. Both roles are in tech advisory. Same location same role.
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.

Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...

I’m working on my application for a role at Google. Is there a particular time frame from the time the posting appeared, within which I should target submitting the application? E.g., the position got posted on LinkedIn on Monday and it may take a week to network a bit, complete the application and submit. Do you think I should rather try to submit it earlier? Is there specific time, from the time of posting, till which they typically accept the applications? Thanks! 🙏🏻

Thoughts on Chime? Accepted offer from Apple then they hit me up with a higher comp band (recruiter not even applied). Add in pre IPO it’s a higher risk higher reward
I had 9 rounds of interviews with a company only for them to make a shit offer by the end of it!
After giving 2 weeks notice, when do the medical benefits end? End of 2 weeks or end of month? What if the company terminates you immediately?
After traditional investment banking, I can safely say banking is better than consulting in regards to prestige, income, and sophistication of work. While consulting has better hours, nicer culture.
