I have a utilization question: if you’re scheduled for 40 billable hours in a week but you finish the work in 30 hours you’re 75% utilized which may or may not be fine depending on ur firm. But if you finish the work in 50 hours, youre 125% utilized but you’re going over budget (providing you don’t eat hours). How do you reconcile the 2?

Where is the transparency in the comp numbers that we asked for? We have just received lip service in return to these questions.

Just confused because no one has actually talked to me about my efficiency/utilization.
