Management: We will not be able to pay out raises this year because there is not enough work. The current economic situation has impacted our clients and the firm financially.
Also Management: You better work a minimum of 50 hours a week this busy season or your utilization will drop into the 70s.
Promoted to SSE with 25% hike and VP as 9% . I had received ACE award in Q3 . I have also maintained utilization report 100% still I got less VP. Can I ask manager to revisit the component
I think the utilization metric is so flawed, yet it seems to be the number 1metric people rely to judge fdd staff. It heavily penalizes efficiency (if it takes everyone 5 hours to complete something what motivation do I have to be faster only to need to fill any saved hours with more work). Can you share any ideas on how to improve fdd metrics or perhaps share what your company does that makes performance great again.
I'm non compliant on CPE by a lot, when is the cutoff date to become current? June 30 or is it the same time that utilization is cut off?
Does utilization matter your first year? Keep hearing im gonna be rolled on something long term and then something month-long pops up in the meantime. Rinse and repeat. Kinda anxiety inducing
110% utilized, passed CPA, travel coast to coast every week, worked on firm initiatives, SMR, managed peers, led trainings, worked on multiple proposals, significantly exceeded expectations = 3 rating
Why do the big four keep hiring college students aggressively then fire them after a year for having low utilization. Why not just hire the amount you can actually staff
Do you use your sick days when you're actually sick and being utilized, save them for vacation, or not use them at all?
Quick question, YE conversations are in the 3rd week of July for me, 85% is the utilization target and I'll be at or just above 84% by the time the conversations happen. Do you think it'll be held

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate
Hey I am a first year associate that started Jan and I have no work during busy season. They told me they overstaffed and now my utilization is really low. I am worried I might get fired over this.
Hi fishes, since the performance year started from Feb 7 to Dec 10, 2021 the performance is evaluated only between this time frame. So if I'm not on any project from Dec 11 to Feb 1st week of next year would that be considered for my next year end evaluation and utilization?
