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)
Has anyone utilized Worthy Bonds. Apparently the bonds are secured by the small businesses inventory they loan to. Right now my HYSA is about 1% and they are offering 5%.
How many hours are considered 100% utilization for S3/S4? Are we based off 40 or 45 now in SaT?

“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.

Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.
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 ?
Has EY really had a good year? I am looking at utilization in my region (SW tax) and it seems abysmal. Are raises really going to be better than last year?

My company offered to pay my way through the CFP program, on the contingency that I will pass and also stay with them for 10 years after the fact. Is this normal? It seems unfair to make me pay them back down the road if I decide to take a better opportunity. It’s a small business that is worried I will leave.

What pair of black dress shoes would you recommend for daily wear at the client site? (Typically just wear a button down and slacks with the occasional blazer)
I currently work a temporary position with the federal gov. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family soon. I’m concerned maternity leave may not be on the table due to the “time limited appointment”. The confusion is people’s time limited appointments keep getting extended and some have been there for 1+ year. I’m concerned about the scenario where we get pregnant and then my appointment ends… I’m also nervous about how job hopping will look because I just started in June.
For those eligible for vaccines in Illinois as part of group 1b+ (pre existing conditions) and have access to transportation, there are many appointment windows available in Springfield and southern IL (3 to 4 hour drive) State site explicitly says all zip codes can get vaccinated at these sites: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/statewide-vaccination-locations

I have an interview with a big tech firm very soon. I’m in an awkward beard growth stage and kinda look like crap but not really, do y’all think it’ll affect anything?
I recently moved to the US for work. Single; went out with a guy from a dating app; he cracked jokes & told what sounded like cautionary story about his friend who married a foreigner and got dumped once she got a green card. I’m confused because I’m from a “wealthy” European country, based on public information I make more than 2x his salary… is it the case that Americans assume everyone dreams about becoming American, regardless of their circumstances? And should i be offended...?
Just had my first business trip since COVID. I just want to say FU to everyone who is inconsiderate enough to recline and try to break my kneecaps for 2.5 hours.
