On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
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?

Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
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 ?
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
EY Utilization.... what's your full Utilization YTD? Specifically interested in other managers or senior managers.
How can utilization encourage efficiency? I have a 30hr code and I finished the work in 5hr. If I charge 5, the write up gives credit to the partner and my utilization suffers.
Why do holidays count against 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)
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?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything.

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
