When do utilization rates reset at PwC?
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
New SALT person here-- could someone help me out with recognizing if/when an underlying investment utilized the 163(j)? We received an underlying Federal K-1 that shows Line 13k but I can't figure out if it was utilized or not. Is that line even included taxable income to begin with? TIA!
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
How are Business/functional analysts utilized at your company? Or do you have product owners (scrum) or product managers instead?
What are benchmarks for good/bad utilization %. How do I know if I have a healthy % or not?
New hire question: How can I increase my utilization to meet target? Even if I work 40 hrs a week because of my hire date I'll miss the target by 4%.
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.

Have an early flight (6am) out of LAX and would like to stay at a hotel nearby. I know there are a bunch in the vicinity, but any recommendations for one with easy transportation to the airport?
Generalist strategy consultants (esp those at MBB or T2), how hard was PERM for you? I know someone failed PERM because company did recruit someone (US citizen) with same title (entry level generalist software developer) and does same work, during the PERM period. I imagine that’s an issue for consulting generalists as well given companies recruit tons of Americans as strategy consulting generalists as well, right?
A friendly reminder to LGA folk — that stupid on-ramp adds 15-20m to your travel time. T minus 45 so here’s hoping the TSA haven’t messed up CLEAR and precheck.
Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?
Has anyone used points for a hotel stay and has tried to get some of those points back due to unsatisfactory service?

On a client proj since 2 years and playing a key role. What would Accenture offer if raise an exit request now? I have an offer in hand from another firm. Thoughts?
Do you think sales has a better trajectory/potential than PA? I’m hearing senior salaries being 25% higher than starting salaries and exit opportunities around 40-45% higher than starting salaries after slaving for 3-4 years. Meanwhile, sales you could make the exit salary numbers in your first year (and in some cases 2x as much even with the pandemic). What are your thoughts? PA is more stable, but I didn’t join accounting to be a CAO, I did it for money—- so where is it...?
