People on here are talking about billable hours and utilization... are those things that are tracked on an individual basis? We do it as a firm aggregate and thought that was the norm, but seems to be that it might be tied to specific people at other firms?
In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues. To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network. My experience seems that the ones let go, had weak network.
How does your firm calculate utilization? My firm’s billable requirement is 1850, but our utilization percentage is calculated based on 40 hours billed per week (2080/year). Pro bono work counts towards billable requirement , but isn’t included in our utilization numbers. This seems out of sorts… Yearly requirement is fine, but it just feels like the numbers don’t match up. I don’t feel like my utilization expectations/work are being accurately accounted for.
Can someone help me with this? I had a low utilization since pandemic, I.e., ~sub 5%, but never missed any payments. Would credit score be impacted if only one line of credit with a low utilization? Too few accounts currently paid as agreed FICO® Scores consider the number of accounts that are paid as agreed. Your score was impacted because the number of these accounts is too low, or because you've missed payments recently on some of your accounts.
So... what is that new PwC utilization target for associates (to make tier 1)? I remember it is 80-something%, but I can't find the actual number anywhere.
Worth pursuing business development as an experienced analyst going into senior? Its something I'm pretty good at but it seems like at my level youre mostly evaluated on utilization...
1st year auditor here in west coast office. I’m book 60 hours this week however I only worked 48 hours. We’re still waiting on supporting docs and my senior tells me to log of early. Will this impact my performance and utilization?
Not getting promoted, on the bench now for a week and reluctant/unmotivated to get staffed b/c my utilization won't matter at this point for YE or next year. Can I chill or will I get in trouble?
Worried I didn't deliver on Impact Day. Fences I painted were only OK. 1 year C, strong 3 YE, all 2 PEs, and good utilization. Should I be concerned? Time to start looking @ other firms/options?
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
Deloitte people on CPT with 40 hour/week limit: Since its self-reported, do you just bill 40 hours per week? Worried about the impact to my utilization.
Those who got promoted, what were some of your key metrics? Level/1-5 feedback/utilization/practice?
My senior keeps on cc-ing the manager and senior manager on emails when he assigns me work. He didn’t used to do that, but the past 6-7 emails I’ve gotten have been like this. I did hear a rumor that there were talks about my efficiency/utilization....do you think it’s related to that? Is this passive aggressive? Just confused because no one has actually talked to me about my efficiency/utilization.
Is utilization just a tax thing?
My practice for example - maybe I'm the minority here. But our MDs emphasized over and over again that it is their fault that we have no works to do. It's NEVER our fault if we have low utilization.
What's the best way to watch Olympics without cable TV nor free to air but with internet?
Looking for advice! Ive been with my company a few years now, and although I’ve been given multiple salary bumps I still don’t feel like I’m being paid fairly for my workload. The raises I got were only after team members left and I basically absorbed their roles, and I started off at a very low wage. I’m super thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given and don’t want to come off as money hungry, but based on market research I’m still making well below average salary for my title.

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.

Pls recommend websites for dresses for a beach vaca. Went from size 6 to 10. Feeling depressed. Nothing fits. Retailers seem to be carrying winter wear. Checked Lulus, ASOS, Nordstrom, Boden, Venus
I have an issue that’s been on my mind. I’m not big. I’m 5’4 and around 125 lbs, but pretty much all of my friends have disordered eating habits. I’m supposed to go on a beach vacation with them in two weeks and all I can think about is how much bigger I’m going to look next to them. I almost want to cancel my flight out of anxiety.

I’m married and in my late 20s and a lot the leaders in my network (like 2nd degree PMDs and SMs) that keep insinuating that I need to “think about my 5 year plan and how children might impact my career” when I’ve never mentioned a plan to have kids anytime soon and have often outright said I don’t know that I want to have kids. Any advice for how to deal with those kinds of assumptions? I’m worried they WILL impact my career even though the assumptions aren’t fair or accurate.

Question. New staff that started in January. Needs help every time they do a return. Can’t follow simple instructions. Takes hours to walk them through how to prepare a return. Have shown them multiple times how to do so. How many times is too many times to help and see no improvement? Do I tell someone they aren’t learning or that they are struggling?

I've signed a offer recently but haven't received the final contract, HR told me usually they will send 1-2 weeks prior to start date. I'm due to start in a month. Is the contract binding?
Hi All, Can anyone please suggest. If we accept the offer letter from TCS and we don't join later, so do they blacklist the profile ? In future, if I join will they accept ? Thanks in advance.
