Utilization rate this time of year?
Someone explain to me how this works: if I have really good snapshots with performance differentiators for almost every snapshot I have, but my utilization is below the goal for my level. I’m asking..
90% utilization, great snapshots BUT no relationships with the partners in my practice + currently on beach. Everyone I've worked with is shocked. Was told there were HC quotas. Not meritocratic.
Hi all, I’m looking to move in a mid size audit firm (RSM, GT other..). I am promoted to S2 in Big4. How are the hours in audit financial services ? Is it slightly better ? I’m utilized > 100% all year, averaging 60hr.
Manager 4, likely getting a 4/almost always with good, but not great utilization (~65-70%) but not getting promoted. Am I at risk of getting canned?
Is taking the sabbatical offered by pwc, career suicide... in a time when utilization matters so much?
Staffed most of the year but low utilization (<40%) due to partners asking team not to bill. I have read other posts that say to ask for non-charge code when this happens. If projects are (continued)
How do I check my utilization?
Ever since Risk Assurance busy season ended, I feel like I’ve been kind of coasting. I’m still getting all my work done but my utilization is slipping. With CRTs coming up, how worried should I be?
My utilization is 90% but all of my clients are small jobs. Does that look worse than someone who works on the larger, higher revenue generating jobs with all else equal (utilization/performance)?
It feels so good not to have to bill clients and submit time sheets. Finally I can focus on actual work. Is this what freedom feels like? 🤩
What's good utilization ? Just started and fretting on low utilization but I think meeting the target of 85% would be doable. Is the average of Staff/ Seniors above 100?
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
What is the exact date on which utilization tracking for FY2018 started? I know it's March sometime. When does it end?
Is utilization less important if the firm simply cannot sell enough projects to staff people on?

Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
PTO on the bench if actually taking vacation? Thoughts about that? Does that help shorten your time on the bench and look less bad?
What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?
Apparently rumor is PwC isn't hiring and was told to utilize staff in different service lines to staff engagements since there are so many on the bench...

I received a very good scholarship from Booth, is it still worthwhile to do my Columbia interview? Want to give it my all but feeling so burned out from the year long application grind.
I saw this article in a page I’m learning through from mynea360.org As someone learning to recognize my own white fragility in order to build racial literacy skill & stamina for a sustainable future, I found it very worthwhile. She doesn’t end on a cheerleading note. For support, I see anti-racism addressed in my health care plan (‘mystrength’ app...stress/ ‘you need to have that conversation’) as well as within anti-discrimination online trainings and state & national union webinars. https://educationpost.org/if-you-really-want-to-make-a-difference-in-black-lives-change-how-you-teach-white-kids/
