Really? Although I am in a project for the next 7 months I am good… But to be on bench for a long time is not good correct?

210%

At Deloitte? What level?

Yes Deloitte… I am currently on a project for the next 7-8 months and have been on this project since past 3 months

It varies by level; your target doesn’t change if you’re new, you are just likely to have a bit less scrutiny if you miss it

I got the email as well. I'm at 57%. Coach said try to stay on the project. Seems it's just a way to not pay the annual bonus, which I'm not even eligible for anyways.

How's your utilization?
I've been placed on deals but randomly they get slow, client doesn't upload or I'm told to be mindful of my billing when I am on a deal.
Is this an issue for anyone else?

What should I do? Should I be worried? I am currently in tax advisory. I’d say over 1/2 of us have not been at utilization % the leaders wants us to be at. Just seems across the board billable hours are down. Some of us are getting loaned out to the tax compliance team. Yet our group is still hiring folks?! I feel as if partners/senior managers are just unhappy with the talent they do have and are fishing for better. Am I way off?

So glad I found this group! I’ve hopped through 3 jobs since graduating 2 years ago. They all start out great- I ace interviews, flourish creatively, and get super positive feedback from managers.

My work suffers and I end up quitting because I hate myself for not showing up when people are counting on me. Any advice?
