Joining Deloitte on Monday. Sound like they want to send me to a few training bootcamps for analytics. Will attending these hurt my utilization rate, thus resulting in a poor end of year rating?

Geez dude you'll be new just go to these things and network.

Yes. You're doomed. Decline the offer

You're worried about all the wrong things right now OP. Listen to me and PwC1. Your job is to crush whatever is given to you.

No don't! You'll never get your utilization back up! You're hosed. For. Ever.

You're the most worried consultant I've met! Gosh just go, you won't get promoted in a year anyway

The fact that you think you have the choice to decline this when you are starting on Monday does not bode well for you...

"There are no silly questions." - no, this one right here is.

The utilization for first years is lower than standard utilization. You'll be fine!

The new hire analytics training is garbage. But go just for the networking and free food, plus you won't have to do any actual work.

They really don't give you the choice, you have to go.

If it's like PwC, you're starting at a good time since we refresh our stats at the end of this month in preparation for FY17. But either way, everyone starts at the bottom from training

like

Your first year utilization does not matter in the slightest. Go with the flow and don't worry about it. Try to make friends and don't ask questions like that otherwise everyone will think you're a nut bag

Bro you haven't even got a sympathy upvote for your OP....life's going to be tough in this world for you....reminiscent of your high school days. #welcometothethunderdome

If it is at Deloitte Univeristy: Enjoy the PTO and great food!!!

Analytics bootcamp is pretty easy! Just network, enjoy the food, and drinks at the barn!

Welcome to the firm!

Welcome to the firm. Relax and focus on networking during training. That's more important than utilization

And pokey at the jap corner.

It's DU - enjoy. I'm assuming you don't have a network to be staffed right away anyway. Meet people!!

Are you new to consulting in general @OP? Sorry, we fishbowlers can get grouchy 🐱
