How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
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)
I have some extra utilization. Does it automatically roll over to the next performance year or do I have to let someone in Talent know?
Has anyone utilized Worthy Bonds. Apparently the bonds are secured by the small businesses inventory they loan to. Right now my HYSA is about 1% and they are offering 5%.
Has EY really had a good year? I am looking at utilization in my region (SW tax) and it seems abysmal. Are raises really going to be better than last year?
What are benchmarks for good/bad utilization %. How do I know if I have a healthy % or not?
My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Curious...currently at 60% utilization PY. Some things on the pipeline but I don't feel particularly confident that them. What's considered dangerously low? Genuine advice?
Will a sabbatical affect your utilization?
I read an article about companies planning to increase remote work even after it’s safe to go back to work. The first question was “How does your company measure productivity?”. Why don’t big 4 consider other was to capture productivity? Utilization is such a huge factor in big4 but capturing productivity within that is a lot harder to measure. Thoughts on big4 moving to a productivity model over hours model?
I️ don’t want to be tied to a single technology and would like to have a breadth of experience and freedom. Although it seems the only way to get utilization is through a single tech piece. Continued
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
I don’t understand how people keep posting about the bench and being unassigned. I’m in advisory(not audit) and my entire LoS is trending 90%+ utilization
Someone could write a thesis paper on toxic masculinity and rape culture based solely off data gathered from the posts in this bowl. I knew it was bad, but hearing all these stories (and worse -- how the OP is often unsure if she should be upset about whatever incident) makes my skin crawl! Silver lining is seeing so many women affirm and validate other women's experiences and remind them they don't need to tolerate behavior like this.
I recently joined Deloitte (experienced hire with 4 yoe from ACN), I’m staffed on a project for the partner that recruited me. The partner told me to record every call (internal and external) and when I asked if just needed notes she said she wants a recording of every one....is this normal Deloitte behaviour?
Reposting - Deloitte 🐠 Is the 2 year sign-on bonus clause standard (need to pay back 100% if you leave before 1 year, 50% if you leave before 2 years)? Anyone successfully remove this or reduce to 1 year?
The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!
Pay at flatiron health?
Did anyone here work with a publishing company? I'm searching for my exit and would really love to work with books in some capacity
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
Considering leaving hectic agency to an in house creative team at a relatively unknown tech startup. I’ll get a significant raise and a better work environment but still on the fence. Thoughts?
I have ~$52K in my 401K. How does that compare with others? I’m almost 27 and have been thinking more and more about withdrawing some to pay off college debt.
NYC is starting to liven up a bit. It’s good to see so many people out and more bars and restaurants are opening with seats and standing outside. Better times are ahead!
I feel like the partner on this project doesn’t respect me, how do I make a case to roll off this project ? All I need is smile from you and “how’s it doing” on a daily basis .
In the interview process for a FAANG. It’s been almost 2 months, and I’ve been through four interviews. Still waiting on final decision. Does that seem like a long time frame?
Any one who has done CSCP certification and can help guide through the exam preparation ?? Does it help when applying to MBB??
Which firms are still letting people expense overtime meals, aka WFH hasn’t changed expense-ability?
