PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?

G&A is code for "I didn't do anything this day. Might have watched some Netflix."

Vacation time looks better than G&A time at the end of the year.

Used that code a lot last year^. Thanking my lucky stars I made it through the purge.

What do you mean the 30% has to go somewhere? And if you're on pto you should be using the code. Are you saying you want to hold onto pto because your utilization is so high now? Wouldn't recommend that.

Sounded like op wanted to have "extra" vacation to me, until utilization drops to normal.

You use "G&A" and not "Available" while on the bench?

If you plan to quit soon, vacation gets paid out.... could always use your holiday code if you aren't going to use them before the end of the year.

I've only used the G&A code for time on the bench and days I was scheduled for work but put in less than 8 hours.

Wtf is G&A

Why would you put it on vacation? 1st level is client PD code, then G&A

G&A hurts you

Wait... What are you asking? Are you asking if you should put the 35% on G&A or vacation code?? I don't get the last part of your question.

I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?
