Post-prod consultants - What does your work load look like in terms of: 1) forecast targets, 2) utilization targets, 3) number of clients you support? Do you feel balanced/supported?
Does anyone have trouble hitting PwC FDD utilization goals in the associate snd senior level? When I’m working overtime I’m told not to book more than 7 or 8 hours a day, and when I’m not fully staffed or have slower periods, I don’t want to charge more hours than I work. Anyone have tips? How important is my utilization for CRTs?
What would you do if you have way less clients than your peers? Do you wait until you are assigned more clients or speak up? I'm a high performer but not utilized to my fullest capacity.
I’m about to be a second year and have a core utilization of 75% (adjusted 85%). Is this really low? Is it something I could potentially get fired for? No bad reviews, and the low utilization was due
I recently found out that my male counterpart was being paid about 12% more than me. I have a CPA, he does not; however, his utilization was substantially better than mine. Any thoughts?
What does this Standard Utilisation and Adjusted Utilization mean? What should be the target Utilization.
I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute. I am having discussions with my teachers on ways that I can better support them and the students when remote.
In USI International tax- the busy season is from March-October. (Actual work starts from June)
How the standard utilization/CSH is expected to cross 1700+( 80-85% UTZ) ? I know people cross this threshold easily, but need to know the trick!
Trust me after October getting Fiscal cliet is tough so you actually drive into the so-called honeymoon period!
Boss Makes a Dollar, I Make a Dime,
and I have given up all my personal time. Going for 105% Utilization
My project keeps getting pushed back week at a time so my utilization has been suffering for last 2 months... I'll probably get dinged for it at year end review. And its supposed to be my promo yr FML
At PwC(S&) are evaluations (career roundtables) driven primarily by utilization? How much do reinvest and snapshots play?
what is projected utilization for other firms in September? I think EY FSO-ITA is looking less than 70%
For the past several months I've watched painfully as my utilization suffered because I was assigned to a project that does not allow me to be fully utilized (EM also nitpicks hours billed)...my manager and ppmd are already aware of the situation but haven't offered up another engagement. How can I fix this situation without annoying them?
There is a lot of fear in the overall ZS bowl due to less utilization and our business not growing at the same pace. What do you all see as the potential impact on our lives?
I am planning to do independent consulting. Have never done it before. Can anyone please share insights about purchasing medical insurance? My spouse does not work. I am thoroughly confused after a brief research on the web. Should I be getting a private insurance or ACA insurance? Are they different? My family and I have a few chronic conditions and my children undergoes therapy. So, high utilization of the insurance. Any insights and specific portal Information would be appreciated. Thanks 🐠!
Is it me or is the utilization calculation on Talent On Demand totally wrong? I just calculated my utilization and it's 117% but ToD is showing 104%.

Follow-up help needed ——
Last Monday (8 business days ago) I got a call from a recruiter screening me for a job I applied to at a start-up. He said I should expect a call by the end of the week after my info was sent to the hiring manager. I haven’t heard from him, but I also don’t have an email to follow up… just the phone number he called me from for the screening. Is it improper to call that number back and ask for an update?

I work at a public company (accelerated filer), the deadlines are always super tight and stressful every quarter. I hear others say that public companies can be chill, 40 hour week jobs but how is that possible? Are they all just way better staffed to handle the filing deadlines?
