Effective utilization

They say officially say effective, but my team always talked about full

We always discuss full with my team. When I have mentioned effective, I'm always asked what full utilization looks like.

Shoot. Took a few weeks off during short term disability leave and I guess I should expect a hit on my ratings:'(

Hoteling at an HR person's desk today. They have a poster that says year end reviews are based off of the full utilization.

Nooooooo!!!!!!!

As a experienced hire SC (1 month in), aside from building a network blah blah blah. Is doing firm work going to benefit my year end review in any way? I’m billing 45hrs to my client weekly and I hear utilization doesn’t matter first year. Don’t want to waste my time on firm work if it doesn’t benefit me yet. Thoughts?

How lenient are you with billing? Just saw a presentation showing the average utilization was over 95% at my mid sized consultancy and I swear I know so many people that barely have work. Like literally during the staffing calls everyone says they’re only 50% billable and are looking to take on more work.
