HI Fishes, Deloitte USI Advisory Managers are expected to have 90% utilization. Is this the expectation in other big4 as well?
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
If you are looking to start your own side gig in Business Strategy, Data, Design & Media, Finance, HR, Management, Marketing and IT, then the first step is to build experience on your own with a few clients. I utilized https://www.catchafire.org to build up my social media clients. After a couple times volunteering with different orgs I was able to have quotes from those I worked with and could charge corporations. Just a piece of advice I share with people looking to break into a side gig!
Would love some feedback this afternoon on creative ways to reach more applicants. I’m a recruiter for a small NGO and we’re looking to hire more recent graduates. Handshake, Indeed and LinkedIn have been our friends and I’ve also utilized various forums to attract applicants but want to reach out for some feedback from other recruiters. Thanks for the support in advance 😊
Its unclear w/o score cards. Whats the utilization target for exam and nonexam taking seniors? Is that full or effective utilization?
Promoted to SSE with 25% hike and 9% VP. I received ACE award in Q3 with recognization still I feel VP is very less. Utilization report I have maintained 100% . Is it possible to revisit the component
Both in industry and consulting, i probably have a 15% utilization on Friday. Just cannot get myself to be productive. Maybe attend a meeting but that is about it.
Thoughts on leaving PA primarily due to the metrics based culture (utilization, dtc, use of X digital tool, revenue, margin, etc). I find this aspect of PA stressful and exhausting but not sure if this is something you just get used to. Currently a manager and seems like the metrics just change over time / don’t get easier.
Any Monitor Deloitte people in here based out of Southeast Asia? What is the avg. salary raise (base + performance bonus) should I expect from 1st year Consultant to 2nd year C? Current performance scatterplot is at highest top right, utilization rate 90%. Thanks!
Started at the firm as a new grad in September, first project ended last week and haven’t gotten a bite for a new project yet. Been on the bench for almost a week, should I be worried about utilization?
Huge mistake? career feedback requested. I am 43. No mentorship/direction in high school and college (Econ degree) ended up writing commercial RE appraisals, it’s a bit of a sweatshop industry imo. Now I am a reviewer at a bank. Shy of $90k & 40 hours with little stress. I have my MAI, life is good. I loved acct. and finance (one grad-level finance class as an undergrad, I liked it.) in college. Feeling under-utilized now. Is there a space where I can add more value/earn more. Honesty only pls
Hadn’t noticed this sub before, and most of the threads are old so thought I’d ask a follow up - how has everyone been handling parenting with public accounting? I’ve got a toddler and my wife is an accountant (industry), and we only have a few immediate family in the country- but they have health concerns. Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.
I am trying to be Manager by next year. Is this the time to try a new fancy project, or safe, utilization driven project? Struggling between new, innovative area, and traditional area.
Does anyone have any experience working for UnitedHealth Group as an Inpatient Care Management Nurse? (UM, utilization management, etc)? Looking for feedback on employee satisfaction after a few interviews. Thank you!!!
Can you get fired for having low utilization as a senior? My billable hours this busy season have been much lower than my peers.
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.
What is your utilization target? Mine is 80% which gives me no time to develop innovative skills for our practice.
Anyone transitioned from a Tier 2 consulting firm (Strategy&, EYP, Deloitte S&A) to ZS? Laterally or a level up e.g. M to M or M to Associate Partner? Background is in commercial
Question to the bowl - I am working in Deloitte PMO Analyst with cumulative work ex 2.5 years. I want to move to Program Management in FAANG. But for all the posts I see work ex is more than 3 years with an MBA. So, Should I go for an MBA first or should I apply for the same roles. I am mainly aiming Amazon.
Are there any data analysts that don't use SQL? My job relies on IT to handle the programming, but I feel like this is holding me back for other opportunities.
When can you apply again after getting rejected? Is it six months or a year after the rejection email?
Hello! Going to Aruba next week with my significant other. Any suggestions of what to see and do? Suggestions for good snorkel companies? We have 5 days there 😊 thank you!
Currently SM in a specialty tax group with my role having a data analytics focus. Are there exit ops in consulting?
Met a 31 yr old Deloitte partner. I am 29...I can't stop staring at her and asking myself why I fail so hard ?
Currently making 100 base. Was asked during an interview what it would take and I said 140. They came back with 145. I was initially excited but now I think I lowballed myself. Should I have held out and made them give me the range?
I am about to move from Intuit to Google, but now when I am trying to decide on some orthodontist treatment I need (braces/Invisalign), it seems like Google’s Delta Dental PPO isn’t a great plan. The seems subpar compared to Qualcomm or Intuit’s. Can any current Google’s comment? On a similar note, are there other jerks available to Google’s, e.g.: subsidized movie/concert tickets, swag, travel/car rental discounts, etc? I’d appreciate the comments. YoE: 15 TC: 310K
Has anyone been offered severance verbally only to have it revoked after you accepted? If so, how did you handle it?

One of the partners at my office emailed and said the firm is recommending/encouraging us to wear masks in common areas but it is not required. More people have started wearing masks around the office after this but the partner that sent the email hasn’t been. How am I supposed to know if we actually should we wearing masks or not when it’s not required?
What advice would you give to Junior Consultants as they build their own “Brand” within ATK?
How long does it take for me to get fired if I keep being unassigned? My team got dissolved due to internal restructuring/regrouping and I am teamless now. My former partner is moving to another team and he said he won't take me with him. All other memebers of the former team except for one junior left the firm already. Not sure if my profile fit for any other team. I got unassigned today. How long do you think I have until I get fired?!
