What were some challenges y’all faced this week?
What would you do if you have way less clients than your peers? Do you wait until you are assigned more clients or speak up? I'm a high performer but not utilized to my fullest capacity.
How long before it's reasonable to look for a new job? Been here 3.5 months, and not being challenged or fully utilized despite my requests/efforts/experience.
A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price. Anyone had similar experience?
I wish admin utilized Tier 1 supports with teachers. Smiles, appreciations and acknowledging ones efforts would do a great deal to boost morale and climate. I just don’t understand what that is so hard to do.
Should I take vacation days for 2-3 weeks in my promotion year (3-4 months before promotion)? What would be the impact to my promotion? Is it just utilization or it could slow down my promotion?
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
Are you seeing any change in behavior based on the increased scrutiny on utilization and EM? I feel like there’s less teaming than a few years ago. Is that acknowledged as an unintended consequence?
How do you handle busy season OT/utilization requirements while WFH, kids/family all home too? Feel like I’m on the computer round the clock while taking care of my fam, no sleep & just hittin 8hr/day
Received ECT AD in ops at BCG. I have two questions:
1. Is it difficult for these roles to get utilization/billability targets?
2. If I work for say 3-5 years, opportunity for good industry exits?

First year BTS TCI, started in June 2019 and have 65% CS utilization so far. How worried should I be?
On a project where the senior associate doesn't pass anything on to me to do. I am completely out of the loop and have nothing to do while the SA is doing everything. What should I do? I would chill but I need the utilization to get a good bonus
Is it possible or someone on Deloitte Advisory with low utilization to move to a role in Deloitte Consulting or is the utilization part automatically kills all chances?
Caught a peak of the advisory utilization numbers...could see layoffs at KPMG as well. HUGE amount of 0% on the year with 0% forecast in retain. Also heard parts of RC just got reorganized at the top
INDUSTRY VS CONSULTING COMPARISON THREAD
Joining Industry has been pretty interesting. I’d love to hear about the little nuances you’ve noticed after making the switch.
I’ll go first:
- The concept of a “boss” is very real. This person is largely responsible for your career, knows your salary, and has influence in things like internal transfers
- The idea of working FOR your boss is also new
- No time sheets or utilization
- Decks and presentation skills are way less polished
Fractional staffing problems? My practice seems to have an issue where consultants are staffed across multiple projects to meet their utilization quota idea how to avoid this problem as a consultant?
When you find out your peers are compensated more even though your rating and utilization is higher :(
My project goes live Nov 9th but I have accepted a new job. When do I put my two weeks in? I have been with this client for > 1.5 years. My gut says give notice Oct 15th but stay through Go Live week. I don’t want to jeopardize my utilization at my new firm. New firm supports pushing start date but obviously prefers an earlier start date.
Biglaw transactional associate - only at 81% utilization on the year. Feeling like a failure. Just need some extra motivation.

Any guesses on the salary range for Senior Associate, Rm, Kpmg?
In an environment where we’re barely surviving, fielding resignations left and right, I thought this might be a good place to vent, source ideas, discuss common trends etc. Our field is very unique and hard to find comps in terms of salary, daily duties, expectations so I’m hoping we can have an open dialogue on this!
Awesome bowl!! Ty
Fridays are the worst because it sure feels like that’s when the resignations come in. It’s hard not to feel stressed about it. 🤦🏼♀️
Experienced hires can sometimes be like the salt water taffy of resources. They’re there, but no one wants them 🤦♀️
Has anyone transitioned from Tax to RM? Could you share your experience and pros/cons of the change? Really want to get out of client facing/billable work, but I like my firm. Thank you!
