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?
Thoughts on utilization? Why is this metric so important in the consulting world, beyond ratings/internal contribution? Should this not be the responsibility of the firm rather than individuals?
So, what happens if you miss your utilization/billable hour target by like 70-150 hours? Tons of "impactful" PRD work
Utilization rate this time of year?
Hey managers and above, does anyone evaluate/look at utilization at the beginning of the fiscal year for staff and seniors? Or does it get evaluated only near end of year? Curious to know...
How do I say to my counselor, "be prepared to see a big fall of my utilization because of things out of my control" without sounding like complaining or having a lot of negativity?
Anyone here utilized an early professional mortgage? I’ve seen a few banks that offer them to attorneys, CPAs, etc that are looking to buy a home with low down payment. Just want to know what the catch is (obviously there has to be one but it’s not apparent from the websites). See link below for an example from Cadence Bank. BBVA does these as well. https://cadencebank.com/personal/mortgages/early-professionals-loan-program
for federal projects that cap you at 40/week, do the leadership ever take this into account how it effects your utilization?
I am a senior with 40% utilization.AMA
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)?
90% utilization with 300+ hours of impactful PRDs. Have snapshots of every work I did this year. Can I expect rating of 1?
Is taking the sabbatical offered by pwc, career suicide... in a time when utilization matters so much?
61% utilization as a first year associate. RIP
What do you think it takes for a PPD to get a utilization bearing WBS for proposal work? I know it is rare...

Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.
