I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
EY Utilization.... what's your full Utilization YTD? Specifically interested in other managers or senior managers.
Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
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)
Will a sabbatical affect your utilization?
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?
Everyone I reach out to is saying that things are slow during this time of the year and I am starting to get worried about my utilization. Is it true for all staffs?
How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
Anyone else notice the spikes in BTC and ETH at the exact moment the federal government shutdown? Bad for my utilization (I’m federal) great for my portfolio
FDD folks, do you work often over the weekends ? If yes, can you give an idea of how many weekends? I heard utilization rate was around 80-90% is it true ? Just trying to compare with audit hours.. thanks !
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Why do holidays count against utilization?
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!
Thoughts on CCSP cert (ISC2) value to maturing cybersecurity brand for career vs CSP vendor certs (e.g., MCSE Azure Sec, AWS CCP/CSA, GCP CSE)?

Went from wanting to only focus on my career and not even wanting kids to now wanting to be a SAHM while I raise kids and go back into a more relaxed job. Has anyone else had a crazy shift in thinking like that? Been single this whole time, so no one is influenting this

That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
I need opinions on this. Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund) I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?

Looking for a permanent agency position. Why is it that more and more, I find that 20 years of experience is a negative and something I have to hide?
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
Huron 🐟. I'm interested in a project manager position that isn't offered in my local office. If I apply, will I be expected to relocate or is it flexible?
Trump's description of late term abortion got me curious. I have always been pro-choice but felt maybe I wasn't informed on the topic. I am now sick to my stomach. Holy shit.
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
