Those managers and above, if you have a sold newly promoted senior with good FY17 utilization but his FY 18 utilization so far is around 60%, what would you think?

@PwC1 No PTO since FY18. He will be fully booked next week. But he has lost motivation to work hard past a few weeks and just hit the internal codes rather than raising a hand and ask for work. Yes, I am the senior.

Sure they aren’t eating time? My utilization is 60% even though I’m probably hitting 60hrs each week

PwC overall utilization for CRT discussions is based on performance year (June-May) and FY 7/1, not sure how KPMG measures this. Basically if you're 60% in the first month, those few busy season months of 130-150% should make up for it. You're fine relaxing now but know you will have to bust your ass here pretty soon. And go ahead and book 1-2 weeks PTO in April, sounds like you might need it.

Depends on reason and LoS- has he taken a lot of vacation? Is he fully booked? How many clients?

Also have they had to go to any additional trainings since making senior?

They could also be trying to "delegate" more like a senior should be doing.

I’m not a manager but I’m pretty sure they let you do that a little during non busy season so you’ll work your but off during busy season

@OP when did your FY18 start and when is your busy season?

10/1 and busy season is Dec - March

They are thinking about becoming a reality TV star on Keeping up with the Kardashians

I️ don’t look at utilization of my seniors. Keep them busy and hungry. You’re thinking too much

FY18 is a month old...

A lot of folks don't want to spend 12 hours a day working, especially doing busy work that doesn't get us anywhere. Sorry utilization has been low, we don't want to sit on our laptops at 6am.
