Is utilization low in most firms right now? Is it efficiency that is causing this or a slow downturn in the economy causing businesses to close?

EY1 there are economical indicators that signal future bear markets. Some people are better at finding it than others I.e Michael burry. I’m trying to pinpoint what is causing the lack of utilization and if it’s wide spread or isolated to nyc where I live

Most people seem to think the opposite on the economy so I’m not sure what you’re talking about. And small businesses closing wouldn’t really detract from the big 4 client base, nor have I seen a lack of utilization in NYC

M1, please train the new exp hires. Trust me they’ll appreciate it and it’ll help out a lot

So no lack of utilization on your end. That’s good to hear

Probably due to efficiency gains.

Manager 1, I would 100% be interested in coming to EY risk.

What market in EY risk is short on workers?

The entire Central Region is short staff 2 through Managers.

Did they lay off a bunch of people? I know Central region hired a lot of new seniors recently. They need to get trained since I think most came from industry

How is everyone staying motivated at work while going through fertility treatments? On days when I have appts or get my period, all I want to do is google and read forums about it. My utilization is tanking (not because I’m blowing off work, but because I need to find and take on new work) but can’t get the energy to). 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.

How is the practice’s utilization below plan? Is it just so in realistic?

New to ACN, M level, was staffed briefly on a short term project (4 weeks) then got pulled from that project to work on a different one but that only lasted 6 weeks. Utilization is low less than 35% so I’m concerned and don’t have a solid plan for turning things around. As an experienced hire it seems like a battle to establish yourself and find consistent work and develop your network. Did some BD work but was never provided to it w a chargeable code. Any suggestions on turning things around?

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

I work in a small home care agency around 45 patients, 90 employees, including me and 4 other office staff members.

My position was office coordinator until my boys striped me of that title. But I assist with scheduling, I/T, tech support, supervising, payroll, billing, and more.

What am I actually doing? I feel over worked, over utilized, underpaid (but that's not the biggest issue) and over stimulated.

I just had a baby 4 months ago and have been at work since I came home from the hospital.

Confused by "utilization". I've seen 100+%? Is it your charge hrs over goal hrs? It is based on 40 hr week or charge hrs over your total? Ex: I worked 58 charge, 6 GAA, =64 total. What is utilization?

INDUSTRY VS CONSULTING COMPARISON THREAD

Joining Industry has been pretty interesting. I’d love to hear about the little nuances you’ve noticed after making the switch.

I’ll go first:
- The concept of a “boss” is very real. This person is largely responsible for your career, knows your salary, and has influence in things like internal transfers
- The idea of working FOR your boss is also new
- No time sheets or utilization
- Decks and presentation skills are way less polished
