Staffed most of the year but low utilization (<40%) due to partners asking team not to bill. I have read other posts that say to ask for non-charge code when this happens. If projects are (continued)
Why is it that anytime I’ve gotten on a proposal, those asking for help have given me a non-billable code? Is that time counting towards my utilization or am I missing something?
Been on the beach for almost 3 weeks and training next week. There goes my utilization! #kindofenjoyingbeachtimethough
My effective utilization since 10/1 is 158.3%. If my counselor asks me why I didn’t achieve my lead goals this cycle I’m gonna flip a table.
Getting expertise in python/sql/R which is nice for my utilization but I really don’t want a career of coding/IT. Should I just omit these when I look for new opportunities?
How do I say to my counselor, "be prepared to see a big fall of my utilization because of things out of my control" without sounding like complaining or having a lot of negativity?
Is taking the sabbatical offered by pwc, career suicide... in a time when utilization matters so much?
Hi Bain 🐠, how does utilization look like for AAG guys? Any distinction in terms of Marketing Science and Data Science? Which one will give you more mileage, exposure, in your opinion?

Hi all, I’m looking to move in a mid size audit firm (RSM, GT other..). I am promoted to S2 in Big4. How are the hours in audit financial services ? Is it slightly better ? I’m utilized > 100% all year, averaging 60hr.
Deloitte 🐠: Can people who got 1 or 2 ratings before share your metrics, i.e client/adj utilization, PRD hours, applaud awards, anything else...Thanks!
Anyone have an app or Excel spreadsheet they use to keep track of utilization? We just switched systems and our new system doesn’t give us a real time balance of our utilization rate (cont)
How do you calculate your utilization and what % threshold is the goal for each level (audit) ?
My utilization is 90% but all of my clients are small jobs. Does that look worse than someone who works on the larger, higher revenue generating jobs with all else equal (utilization/performance)?
Good idea to jump ship now ? I’ve been thinking of looking for new jobs but not sure if it’s the smartest move given Covid. Will new companies pay me less and say it’s due to covid?

Been on my mind for a while, all thoughts welcome! So I’m gonna assume that most of us in L&E are in it for the passion, otherwise we would have taken corporate commercial or M&A for the money. So… where do you see your ‘ultimate resting spot’? Would it be 1) global head of L&E law at a big company, having to always be under the global GC, or 2) just collect enough experience to take the GC route? This of course has way more money, but work with stuff that doesn’t excite you as much, or 3)…?
