How are Business/functional analysts utilized at your company? Or do you have product owners (scrum) or product managers instead?
I have some extra utilization. Does it automatically roll over to the next performance year or do I have to let someone in Talent know?
What are firms utilization and sales expectations for manager? My sales for first year manager is 1m and utilization is 70%. Is this generally normal, lenient, or aggressive? I’m at a small boutique ~100 people
When do utilization rates reset at PwC?
Has EY really had a good year? I am looking at utilization in my region (SW tax) and it seems abysmal. Are raises really going to be better than last year?
I was curious what other firms have set as their utilization goals for their different positions? Currently, everyone from staff to senior manager has a set goal of 90%.
Why do holidays count against utilization?
Will a sabbatical affect your utilization?
I️ don’t want to be tied to a single technology and would like to have a breadth of experience and freedom. Although it seems the only way to get utilization is through a single tech piece. Continued

Expecting in few months and have the option to opt out of performance eval this yr.Have really low/negligible utilization, I did everything I could but could not get staffed. How will this affect me?
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?
TIL: Just attended the kickoff session of a Flexibility and Predictability committee for a multi-project account. They mentioned that Booz and McKinsey exclude PTO from utilization calculation.

Have a call on Friday with the CEO of an environmental entrepreneurship non-profit. It could lead to a professional opportunity and maybe even billable work I can refer to my firm down the line.

I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?
Looking for some advice. Currently contributing 10% to 401k and maxing out Roth IRA, and remainder of savings (usually $800-$1200 per month) putting in a HYSA for a down payment on a house. Hoping to buy in 2-3 years once we (partner & I) have a sizable down payment. Should I continue to put all my non-retirement savings in an HYSA for a downpayment or should I also contribute to my brokerage and invest to grow wealth? (24yo, $85k)

Here's the situation. I'm a freelance accountant. I have several part time clients, and one main 30-40/hr/week client. This is about the big one. The company has two co-presidents, but for the sake of clarity I'll call the person I directly report to the COO and the other the CEO - note the CEO also is the founder of the company. Again, I report to the COO. The COO is "working" in exchange for greater equity in the company and a crap ton of pay along the way. Cont.
