I have about 3.5 years of software implementation consulting experience, I’m getting tired of the 9 - whenever the work is done hours and the constant pressure of utilization. I have no idea where to start, has anyone exited from implementation consulting? Any suggestions?
Hi fishes.. i have joined ey gds in august. On the 2nd week of joining i got allocated to a project(100% utilization) its been 3 months, the project did not kickstart.. had few meetings but no work at all. I have been doing couple of certificates though. Can i be in trouble for this? Will job security be affected?
When will YTD utilization metrics be available on DNET for 2018? Right now it says there is no data available.
How does your firm define chargeability? Do you define 100% as break even, or something else? I’ve seen different variations of this. (I’m at a small firm and we only measure utilization)
I’m currently on a Secondment at a PE firm (100% utilized, 6-9months) and my partner still asks me to help out with BD/sales at EY. I’ve said no several times and now she’s becoming demanding. How should I navigate through this? Still wanna maintain a good relationship with the partner and EY, but been so close of just hanging up the call several times.
In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues.
To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network.
My experience seems that the ones let go, had weak network.
How long before it's reasonable to look for a new job? Been here 3.5 months, and not being challenged or fully utilized despite my requests/efforts/experience.
What should be the approximate inhand salary for 45LPA fixed, considering full utilization of 80C, NPS, Home Loan?
I wish admin utilized Tier 1 supports with teachers. Smiles, appreciations and acknowledging ones efforts would do a great deal to boost morale and climate. I just don’t understand what that is so hard to do.
For people that started recently, what is your utilization looking like? I joined in September and have 24% utilization. I have been staffed on 4 deals that all died within a week and it’s been pretty frustrating
On a project where the senior associate doesn't pass anything on to me to do. I am completely out of the loop and have nothing to do while the SA is doing everything. What should I do? I would chill but I need the utilization to get a good bonus
My project goes live Nov 9th but I have accepted a new job. When do I put my two weeks in? I have been with this client for > 1.5 years. My gut says give notice Oct 15th but stay through Go Live week. I don’t want to jeopardize my utilization at my new firm. New firm supports pushing start date but obviously prefers an earlier start date.
I got laid off with no warning. Reason given was my utilization was low at 81.8%. No performance problems. Would it be inappropriate for me to apply back to PwC to the teams I discussed rolling onto?
Are others seeing their work slow down? It’s been a pretty dramatic halt for me. I thought maybe it was a me problem, but others in my group admitted they are also slow. I’ve been consistently 110-120% utilized, but I’ve only billed 22 hours this month. I’m in fund formation.

Hi fish, has anyone heard of BBH Capital Partners? I’m pretty new to the PE scene but wanted to hear thoughts on brand, culture, pay, exit ops, etc. if anyone was familiar… not too much on Google
I’m African. My white American therapist told me I haven’t found a great partner yet because I keep dating African men but that the culture is plagued with so much toxicity that doesn’t align with my personal values (her assumption, I hadn’t said anything about the culture of 54 countries). She told me to consider myself as not just African (I’m mixed) and be open to people outside my culture.
Not sure how to feel about this.

Twice now I have been ghosted by hiring managers after my initial HR screen. It’s really got me feeling like shit.
When is it a good time to start looking for a new job? This is still my first career job out of college. I have been here for 3 years now. The opportunities are great I love my company, the people I work with, the work life balance... however, the salary is slightly lacking (or am I wrong?). I have asked for salary raises, the most recent one was 9%, the other years the typical 2-4%. But, I’ve been seeing entry level right from college make as much as me now. Any advice or thoughts?

My dream company just gave me an offer of 8k less than current. I have another offer of 5k more at a company in Philly with killer benefits and training is great. My SO got an offer for 5k less here and 6k more in Philly. She feels the same about both.
What would you do? All offers are best and final

On your resume, how do you describe your clients without giving out their actual names? I had them as S&P 100 Telecommunications Company or American Entertainment Company.. terrible?
This is old news...
And overall it makes sense to me. Why should an Associate with 60% utilization deserve a 1 or 2 rating?
Sounds like something that has always been the case and now is just on paper maybe?
KPMG 1 - precisely.
P7, some people are too busy selling work. Just sayin...
P7 I am a D and find the requirement offensive. Emphasize the importance? Fine. Make it a prerequisite to being rated highly and compensated well? There are so many other factors that should be deemed more critical that this seems like a trap to stratify people based on a technicality. Last time I was required to punch a time clock to be paid was when I worked in the college cafeteria as an undergraduate.

@PwC 3... oh, young grasshopper, you will learn... you will learn.
Anyone that is smart enough to get into a big 4 firm, but irresponsible enough to not fill out a mandatory time sheet doesn't deserve a $10K+ bonus. Set s reminder everyday at5pm. It takes 30 seconds. Literally.
If you can't manage 80% timesheet, you deserve whatever you get
This has always been the case. 🙄
Only 3 days? Yikes. So if you're on PTO for two weeks you have to log in a bunch to enter timesheets?
You can enter the time, but you get a sync error for any chargeable code more than 2 days out. Sync error is the same as not entering your time. You can sync vacation, holidays, etc in advance.
How do firm contributions and proposals factor into this? Would suck if people fully staffed up on those pursuits were dinged for low util
Time sheets - someone who is below 80% please please explain to me how that happened. Did ever happen more than one year?
With M1 on this one. I'd like to hear a rational explanation as to why somebody could justify being that non compliant with a simple task like recording time. Do they forget to wipe after taking a shit too?
If you're not billable you're kind of stealing from the firm in the eyes of leadership. If/when you run your own business, you'll understand why this is so important. It's business, not family.
Who told you that
Yes. We'll fly right out the door. I find it soulless and ridiculous, especially the time sheet element.
@P4, no actually it hasn't always been the case. This is a new rule this year across Advisory and was communicated in June or July.
