Target for September hires is 75% and it says this clearly in your new hire materials

I joined last August too and mine is actually much lower. But I was told that low utilization isn't a problem in your first year. My PPD told me this so I am going to just accept that. I don't think you should worry about it so much in your first year.

Wow u guys are thinking 80% is low ? I suppose it depends on level though ..A/Cs have ~90% right?

I’ve told my manager about what I’m going through and she is supportive, but feeling guilty when I hear about how busy everyone around me is and I just can’t find the motivation.

Director of Utilization Review salaries

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate
