Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
How am I expected to keep 2 interns and a first year and the GDC fully utilized when I and the rest of my team barely have things to hand off.
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
Snuck out of work. Turned off my phone. Just bought tickets for Avengers: Endgame. Fuck utilization
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
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?
Anyone else notice the spikes in BTC and ETH at the exact moment the federal government shutdown? Bad for my utilization (I’m federal) great for my portfolio
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
Curious...currently at 60% utilization PY. Some things on the pipeline but I don't feel particularly confident that them. What's considered dangerously low? Genuine advice?
Will a sabbatical affect your utilization?
EY Utilization.... what's your full Utilization YTD? Specifically interested in other managers or senior managers.
On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes. I love the pay and I don’t mind working hard, w/ long hours, but the “business of consulting” is exhausting (e.g. maintaining utilization, selling engagements, 6k iterations of a deck, etc). Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?
Any McKinsey fish willing to refer a Deloitte Senior Consultant from Deloitte Digital to a Digital Marketing Associate role? I have 8 years of experience in Digital Marketing.

Anyone sign a prenup? Pros vs Cons experienced and was it worth it. Wife to be makes 1/2 salary as me but is 3 years younger and a hard worker.
A question for Big 4 peeps - if you know the salary range in the group you wanna go for is 150k to 170k, how much should you say when the HR asks you how much you want? Is 180k too much to start with? (Didn’t want to start with 170k since they will only come back with lower I assume)

If you are a woman and a 1st gen American with siblings (IDGAF what culture) you will feel this in your chest.
I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?

Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
I need a part time job to be able to support my family that lost most of their income due to Covid. I’m a first generation immigrant college grad, which for me means student loans and parents with unstable jobs. Any ideas what I could do to make some extra money besides retail?

Had a discussion with my father that he believes relationships are only out of convenience; over time no one actually wants to be married. Example: someone to cook for you, clean while you’re busy working, etc. Women, do you feel this as well? What is convenient for you?
