If you are on an FWA, do you need to meet your FWA utilization hours every week? I.e I am 75% so do I need 30 charge plus whatever admin hours to mercury? I am talking to my people consultant and she seems to think so. In a job that is highly seasonal, how is this possible??
If you join in the middle of the year, does your utilization get adjusted? If so, when does it show up on Staffit? I've been here since may and have been utilized since day 3, yet TOD shows me at 58%
New to FDD from audit. Any advice on getting utilization up? Frequently bouncing around on a deal two days at a time. Have the skill and talent to do great work, just need to show it
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
Will the inability to speak the local language fluently in a country like Germany or Japan definitely impact utilization negatively below manager level?
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
What are firms utilization and sales expectations for manager? My sales for first year manager is 1m and utilization is 70%. Is this generally normal, lenient, or aggressive? I’m at a small boutique ~100 people
my partner always says you have to to reach out for work everyday when available and blames low utilization on the staff level when we have a dedicated resource manager. Is this industry standard?
What are peoples’ thoughts on crypto currency - will be utilized or just a fad? Do people on here currently own them?
Would you be honest or just put something like work life balance. I have worked with really shitty people. It would be several. Like base compensation, skills not fully utilized, firm culture, communication issues, etc
My specialty group is so dead my utilization is 18.7%. I've reached out to dozens of people and no one has work for me. Been here 8 months. I want to shoot myself for not taking the PwC offer.
Welcome to Whose Job is it Anyways! Where the deliverable is made up and the utilization doesn't matter.
If everyone is slaving away in public accounting and the hours suck, etc etc, how is everyone so stressed about utilization?
At your firm what’s the denominator on utilization? 2080? Or is it calculated after provided PTO, sick days, holidays, etc. (e.g. at 9 weeks of PTO/sick/holidays, would be 1720)?
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Have an offer with Accenture Interactive. 30% salary increase but nervous about the increase in hours. Currently pulling 40/45 at Deloitte. Can anyone provide insight into the culture at Accenture Interactive?
Back to looking at some volatility instruments but dont think puts quite yet as our boy trumpito mentioned a response to china tariffs this aft. May reassess for some puts expiring next friday after
How does working in an internal audit role at a company differ from working in one at an accounting or consulting firm?
Was never the type to care so much about feeling out of place but the last few months since I joined MBB i've been finding more and more how the firm is full of rich kids with similar experiences and a shared network. It shouldn't matter, we're here to work, but I'm bothered anyway. Idk where I stand here -- cant blame them for having overlaps w each other -- but I feel very much excluded to say the least. Can't relate. Feels like it makes a steep slope to succeeding in consulting even steeper.
I got laid off during the beginning of the pandemic. Since then I’ve been struggling with drug use and finances. Deloitte hired me out grad school. I’ve been unable to find a job in IT Controls. Any help? I did IT Controls Audit Readiness for a couple years. The market is so niche and being black makes it twice as hard to find work. I really need some help landing a new role folks. I’m 22 days clean!

Hi all, can anyone comment on salary at Deloitte: applied for SC in SCNO, 5 years industry followed by 2 years in consulting at a a small firm. Non mba
The only thing that would convince me to join a union was if I was deeply and strongly attacked in any way at work, and needed legal help bad. What about you?
Would you go to a group event? Your team leader invites the team (8 people who have all been working 100% wfh) out for breakfast or lunch but there is no requirement for people to be vaccinated and you aren't allowed to ask anyone about their vaccination status. Attendance is entirely optional. Would you go?
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?
In an industry where it is a given we will work more than a 9-5, I've heard the key to avoiding burnout is finding the specific type of work that energizes you rather than drains you. Does your practice energize you? If you wake up in the morning excited to put in long hours on that work, please list your area /specialty or what about your work motivates & satisfies you.
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Note to all: Just because you have elite status and are riding dirty in first class does not mean you get to be a douche nozzle. Don't make the window passenger step over you to get to their seat!!!!!
I’m considering pursuing a Finance & Strategy role at Salesforce. Could someone please tell me about the culture within this organization and within the Chicago office? I know that no job is perfect, I just want improvement from where I’m at. What I’m looking for: good pay (~$140k, 10 YOE), clearly defined roles and responsibilities, great team members and a strong manager (that don’t try to be “family”), and work that doesn’t require me to work well into the evening/on weekends consistently.
Does Accenture Federal have a strong healthcare arm? They reached out for a Military Health position a while back but its unclear to me the work they do in the healthcare space.
A good friend that I’ve worked with in the past asked me for a referral. Last time we worked together wasn’t really great. Do I refer them because they’re a friend although I don’t like their work, or should I say no but risk hurting our friendship? Would love some advice!
