EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
Expecting in few months and have the option to opt out of performance eval this yr.Have really low/negligible utilization, I did everything I could but could not get staffed. How will this affect me?
Fellow Deloitte people-- will a 83% utilization rate harm my YE? Up for promotion from BTA to consultant this March!
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
When does fy18 utilization start? May or July?
Everyone I reach out to is saying that things are slow during this time of the year and I am starting to get worried about my utilization. Is it true for all staffs?
Partners, can you help me understand why top performers are sometimes let go? People with great utilization and snapshots. How can we protect ourselves from this fate?
Deloitte peeps.. when is the cutoff date for utilization that will be counted for our YE review?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
Deloitte 🐟 - is there something on DNet to find out how exactly is our utilization calculated?
“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.
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
I think we need to expand utilization metrics into audit sabermetrics. Monthly reports showing: Average expletives per audit Review notes per workpaper Average cry time per day What others are good?
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
Curious...currently at 60% utilization PY. Some things on the pipeline but I don't feel particularly confident that them. What's considered dangerously low? Genuine advice?
What is the base salary for experience associate 3 for PwC CMAAS in NYC? How about senior 1?
Anybody think they’ll see an increase in work mainly doing insurance claim/property damage work?...
Just curious, what percentage of your billable rate do you take home? Calculation would be ((Salary and Bonus/Yearly Billable Hours)/Billable Rate). For me it's about 18% as a Senior 1 in M&A Tax (note this doesn't include other benefits).
Does anyone know what the paternity leave allowance is for UKI? Regardless of what Shared Parental Leave. Just paternity leave only? I read on some policy its 2 weeks? Is this true? Mothers get 9months full pay and dads only 2 weeks? Can someone who has recently taken pat leave confirm please?
How much nonbillable time is too much? I’m a second associate at a midsized firm and I have 30-50 non billable hours each month. An associate at another firm told me this was really high. Thoughts?
Have you all heard about the EFMLA? You can get 2/3 pay for 12 weeks if you need to care for a child due to corona and have no one else. And your job is protected. My coworker is doing it.
I don't understand why the receptionist at the Westin was confused when I asked for Pokécoins for my Platinum gift
Hey there! I just got an offer for an IFS position in risk and quality. Anyone know the average work hours per week?
Sales managers, what are some of the things you wish you could tell reps but can't? What do you wish you could tell inside reps that want to move into field sales but may not be able to, or what do you wish people would ask you?
Anyone have insight into Indexed Universal Life insurance as a tax free investment vehicle? My financial advisor is saying there is no downside risk and 5-7% return and tax free. Sounds either too good to be true, or is this how the wealthy avoid paying taxes??

Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)
