So needing to work 45 hours in advisory going forward, "because professionals already work that much" is a really shitty explication - probably won't get a bump in comp either.

I think the confusion stems from the different expectations across deloitte advisory and consulting. Advisory typically is expected to bill (and work) 40 hrs per week whereas consulting is 45. The difference has screwed me (Consulting) over in the past when working on advisory projects. Sounds like they are now leveling the expectations across both advisory and consulting

Yes, we bill by the day. Technically I think you could bill a half day in an odd one-off. Our timecards just say 8 hours for any day we are staffed. And I guess value-add is subjective. I think our clients would tell you we're pretty valuable, and not a lot of us like working more than necessary They could always hire EY for half the price...

So surprised that people at the firm still haven't figured out utilization is based on billing 40 hrs a week and not 45.

At least in consulting S&O, you usually bill 45 hours a week, but utilization is based on a 40 hr week, which gives you a bit of a cushion for utilization.

Just to be clear, I think it's insane that people are complaining about a 45 hour work week. I disregard all complaints from EY, KPMG and Deloitte advisory from now on.

Idk what you mean by accountability but we charge 45 hrs/wk in Consulting (at least in S&O)

Only 45?

You're responsible for 40hrs/wk EY2...that's 100% utilization in a week...who said it's 45? That's not firm policy

You bill 45 hours a week or work 45 hours a week?

All of Deloitte Consulting (except Federal) is based on 45/hrs as @D3 said.

Can someone please answer whether you are just billing 45 or you are actually working 45?

i dont understand what EY2 saying at all

I am not talking about actuals our call today talked about how staff need to get 45 hours, which is now like consulting.

ATK2 - Doesn't ATK just bill by the days worked? To answer your question is that it depends. We bill what hours we work.

Might seem like a silly question but do any of your firms, or do you know of any firms, that have fairly progressive cultures? WFH has made me realize how incredibly stifled I felt in the office. I want to be able to show some tattoos, have a purple streak in my hair, wear artistic clothing etc and still be taken seriously. Does this kind of utopia exist or am I being extremely naive? I'm originally an artist. I hate how much I've realized that I've stifled my personality for this industry.
