Do we have a chargeable code that we can bill our time to while we are waiting on a code to open? Its getting close to FYE utilization cut off so want to make sure I get credit for the hours pending.
Edit: What is the best way to tell a PM or a PEP that this project isn't for you, and that it doesn't align with your career goals without getting kicked off too soon to negatively impact your utilization? The project is ABSOLUTELY horrendous and a mess. It is glorified admin work which is not what I want to do. Is there a way to tell that to senior management without getting a negative reaction?
How busy are the Big4s in the public sector in Toronto and Canada overall? Any layoffs or are people fully utilized?
Has anyone utilized WF brokerage account? Looking for an account where I could do both Mf/ETF as well as stocks and this seems to be a good option with low fees.
Feel like I’ve come to dread the monthly check-ins with my counselor. Even though I’ve got good feedback, healthy utilization, etc., it seems like it’s not enough in these conversations. Advice?
Are you seeing any change in behavior based on the increased scrutiny on utilization and EM? I feel like there’s less teaming than a few years ago. Is that acknowledged as an unintended consequence?
Anyone else notice the spikes in BTC and ETH at the exact moment the federal government shutdown? Bad for my utilization (I’m federal) great for my portfolio
In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues.
To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network.
My experience seems that the ones let go, had weak network.
Does anyone here have experience with military leave impacting utilization? My reserve unit does “super drills” so without AT, I’m already missing time. I’m thinking I should ask for an adjusted tgt.
A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price. Anyone had similar experience?
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
How do you handle busy season OT/utilization requirements while WFH, kids/family all home too? Feel like I’m on the computer round the clock while taking care of my fam, no sleep & just hittin 8hr/day
Hey Everyone! I’m new to Fishbowl, but excited to connect. I’m looking to transition to consulting! I’m a licensed social worker with a background in healthcare- utilization management and change management. Any leads on new opportunities? Thanks in advance!
Anyone have any tips for getting past the "new consultant" anxiety? Everything from how I look to the team to my first month's utilization rate has me staying up at night...
Hey fishes. is there any issue with relatively low utilization in EY GDS. currently i m waiting for another project onboarding(maybe 1-2weeks). previous FY it was 78per now for FY23 it has come to 25 percent.EY
I’m currently on a Secondment at a PE firm (100% utilized, 6-9months) and my partner still asks me to help out with BD/sales at EY. I’ve said no several times and now she’s becoming demanding. How should I navigate through this? Still wanna maintain a good relationship with the partner and EY, but been so close of just hanging up the call several times.
Does anyone else in public accounting feel bogged down by the need to be constantly billable. I read posts in other bowls/Reddit about people in industry taking about having nothing to do or finishing their work in a couple days and it blows my mind. I’m always so stressed about my utilization, admin time, and going over budget.
I am interested in a clinical manager position for my company that performs utilization reviews for skilled nursing facilities. Currently I am clinical coordinator performing those reviews but I want to move into management. What type of salary can I expect.
I think I might be underpaid. I work for a pretty small company but after looking online it seems like it. I make about $18 an hour as a strategist in Phoenix, AZ. Obviously the cost of living isn't super high, and I get a ton of hours, but still. For a company of under 500 is that good, bad, or totally fine? Thank you in advance, especially for any tips on how to bring it up to my boss.

Anybody else have the same issue with their Polar H10 Heart Rate Monitor Chest Strap? After ~2 yrs mine started periodically losing signal (showed no heart rate, then would come back, on and off). I changed the battery and it helped, but didn’t entirely fix the issue. Now at ~3 yrs, the connection goes frequently and renders it unusable. Any idea what the issue is? How did you resolve it? It worked great for a long time, so I hate to replace it entirely if there is fix.
If anyone is interested in moving to Goodwin, feel free to reach out! I’d be happy to chat about the firm.

So what do you guys do at happy hours to make them more interesting? What do you drink? I find them boring because it’s not networking with new people and I’m sick of water or sprite.
In the past I would use Brightscope to search companies 401k ratings. They have since been acquired by ISS and they no longer offer this information publicly. I am interested in seeing details about your company.

(2) company match
(3) option to purchase additional PTO
For example, at my company GDIT
(2) 100% match up to 3% of your salary, then 50% match for the next 3%, making a total of 4.5% of your salary
(3) yes, up to 40 additional hrs

Donald Trump will win this election easily. The radical left, mainstream media, tech billionaires, looney rioters have nothing on this guy. He is Teflon Don. Unbeatable.

Now THIS sucks.
Foul mouth paratrooper here. Where are you located.
That's illegal - I would raise hell
email@example.com if you end up being interested. Time off coded as military leave does not count against your utilization at KPMG. Also, I'm not sure if it's industry standard but at KPMG anytime on active duty orders that results in a lower income, KPMG will pay you the difference between that and your KPMG income.
To everyone here, thank you for standing up for each other and lending a helping hand. This chain stands for everything that is still good with the world. Collectively, this group is my new motivation.

EY does a great job of hiring Veterans but shitty job developing us
Couldn't agree more. Firms do their best to hire veterans but do a shitty job retaining them. Also, trying to change the image of veterans as many firms don't even understand differences amongst us while creating a divide. Happy to see some good folks in this thread!
