Yup.

What's your target? Other question is your utilization compared to others (I think at the office level).

86% is good enough. I sustained a 80-88% my analyst years at Deloitte. Don't worry

Yes amen

That's fine

Target is 90 :/

Isn't your target 85%?

I thought it was 90 o.o

You're close enough that it's going to depend on where you fall within your cohort. Did you turn down projects?

Nah

I know, but for C's it's 90% according to a nearly impossible to find talent document

You need to have a pretty good story about why you're under target. And a good story for what you did while not billing those hours.

Yeah it's 90% for S&O Cs

Real q is why are you here as a 2nd year..

Uhm because I like my job?

Who ARE you??
