How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
I don’t understand how people keep posting about the bench and being unassigned. I’m in advisory(not audit) and my entire LoS is trending 90%+ utilization
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Have been over 100% utilized YTD until rolling off 3 weeks ago. My practice's leads in the pipeline keep evaporating and now the closest possible engagement is at least 2-3 weeks out. (Cont)
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
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?
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
Hi Bain 🐠, how does utilization look like for AAG guys? Any distinction in terms of Marketing Science and Data Science? Which one will give you more mileage, exposure, in your opinion?
Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
My utilization is below 60 percent and it's majority of internal projects and trainings but have good snapshots(reviews) should I still be concerned ?
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?
How much is utilization factored into raises?
Pwc folks: I heard 4-codes don't count toward utilization anymore in advisory? I'm doing 4 code work now, do I get grandfathered in or is my utilization getting slammed?
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?
Getting rid of my Platinum Delta SkyMiles AMEX. Spoke with Delta - it doesn't help my priority for upgrades unless I spend more than $25k on the card. Only Delta Reserve AMEX helps priority.
Is anyone else having a challenging time recruiting? I’m working on an accountant role and affiliate marketing manager role based in NYC and having the hardest time connecting with people who meet the qualifications. I have a bunch of senior people applying to these jobs asking for much higher salary requirements than what’s being offered. Is that the new norm, candidates willing to step down from sr roles just to get back into the workforce. Any tips on where I should look been using LinkedIn.
Ergonomic home-office chair recommendations?
Hey fishes I know it's kinda depressing but that's what I am into so it's been months now with Amazon and I've working in a new role learning great stuff but here's the catch I don't have anyone to contact with like people here don't reply if you ask for help and if you even call out like they defend by saying they're busy . Forget favors they don't reply to "hey". I have total 2 yrs of exp so barely saw work culture at office. But I wanna ask is this normal or I'm overthinking.

What are you doing for your mother today?
DM me if you want a referral at Gartner. Insane growth and their stock is at an all time high. Flexible WFH and WLB is amazing. Open roles include: Software engineering, product management, Consulting, Research, Advisory, Services Consulting.
What could be more annoying than getting put on a project that has no chance of seeing the light of day? Working the weekend on it.
If I received a request from EY to complete a survey about industry preference, is that a good sign? I’m going through campus recruiting for a consultant role and already completed a game-based assessment through HireVue
So who wants to continue WFH forever?! Think that’ll be an option? Curious how this will play out in a few months.

Chances of getting an IT Strategy Consultant role at KPMG in commercial? Currently at Deloitte GPS doing risk management and the recruiter seemed hesitant with my background during initial screening but unsure how selective they are.
I had a zoom interview with three partners last Thursday. I thought it went super well, but haven't heard anything yet. Should I follow up with the in-firm recruiter, if so, when? This is for a position in a highly ranked but regional (mountain state) firm. Thanks!
