Does PTO Impact utilization?
Seems to me like utilization targets incentive a) lying b) inequity c) inefficiency or d) all of the above. What do folks think?
Beyond utilization and training, what other metrics are important at YE? Five got a slide on projects and one on initiatives. Am I missing anything?
Thoughts on under reporting hours? I’m an analyst and report 45 hrs/week regardless of hours worked to ‘help the team with budgeting’. It impacts my utilization but not sure if that’s just the consulting way?
So these being fired for low utilization posts are freaking me out. Any EY 🐠 hear anything like this for this performance year yet? Is that automatically considered if you get below a 3?
McK 🐟: Which holidays does the firm observe in the US, and what utilization expectations are there for associates?
All of the suggestions on how to maintain WLB fall to individuals - but ultimately if the firm keeps selling as much work as we’re selling, we can’t deliver if lots of folks reduce hours. Seems like a supply/demand mismatch. How can we empower our teams to prioritize WLB and also get all the work done, when utilization is still so high?
Can anyone tell me what the utilization targets are for each level within Federal Advisory and Federal Consulting at Deloitte? How different than Commercial?
Is there an appropriate way to convey high chargeability on your resume? My firm doesn’t provide quantitative rankings as far as reviews go, but my utilization is 30% higher than the average so I’m trying to figure out how to convey that as an indicator of high performance
Please stop sending me invites to join Fishbowl. I'm already here and I feel my utilization dropping rapidly!
Ive heard in advisory, utilization is the single most important factor in reviews, even though it’s usually out of your control (as it is for most staff/seniors). Curious if that’s true elsewhere?
I’m looking for feedback on PEOs, specifically for our EMEA expansion. We are taking to Globalization Partners, Velocity Global, Safeguard Global and potentially Insperity. Has anyone utilized one of these PEOs? What did you like in terms of efficiency and process and what are some watch outs? Any info would be very helpful as we vet them.
McK folks - how is your performance evaluated ? I've heard McK does not use utilization as a metric. True?
How does your firm calculate utilization? My firm’s billable requirement is 1850, but our utilization percentage is calculated based on 40 hours billed per week (2080/year). Pro bono work counts towards billable requirement , but isn’t included in our utilization numbers. This seems out of sorts… Yearly requirement is fine, but it just feels like the numbers don’t match up. I don’t feel like my utilization expectations/work are being accurately accounted for.
People complaining about salaries, bonuses, and lack of promotions are exactly why I don't bother killing myself for work, i.e. Excessive travel, 700% utilization, extra BD work, etc. Not worth it.
First year BTS TCI, started in June 2019 and have 65% CS utilization so far. How worried should I be?
Mohamed (Pwc advisory leader) just mentioned the utilization memo discussion on fishbowl! Haha

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
