Has anyone figured out how to deal with utilization problems? Been working 60-70 hrs last two weeks but can only charge 40. What's the solution here?
Thoughts on hitting utilization targets? Our Consultant target is 90% but PTO available accounts for 10% of the year and is not subtracted from the available hours pool of the equation 😪
Fellow Deloitte people-- will a 83% utilization rate harm my YE? Up for promotion from BTA to consultant this March!
Is there a utilization report published periodically for people at PwC to look at resource utilization across groups?
First year BTA and I have 55% utilization and am still on the beach. Am involved in tons of initiatives and have constantly reached out to projects on GSS and just never hear back. How screwed am I?
Welp. There goes my chance of reaching my utilization goal. #gth #takinourjobs #emptyARMS
Why isn't utilization part of your bonus? I get why it doesn't go towards performance...but if I'm charging 100% for the year that means I making the company a lot of money! Hook it up!!
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
Associate with low utilization lives in Central NJ asked to commute to CT for few weeks to work on a client. "I can't, it's too far." Ok, don't complain when you are 3 rated with no bonus #millenials
My weight positively correlates with my utilization.
Joining Deloitte on Monday. Sound like they want to send me to a few training bootcamps for analytics. Will attending these hurt my utilization rate, thus resulting in a poor end of year rating?
I've been on the bench for 4+ weeks. I got 'staffed' last week but today the start date was pushed back another month.. Is there anyway to save my utilization? Should I request a different project?
Been on the beach for almost 3 weeks and training next week. There goes my utilization! #kindofenjoyingbeachtimethough
Does PTO count against your utilization at your firm? Want to take all the PTO that I deserve but utilization is gonna suck 🙄
What is the utilization rate based off of? 40hr/week? Or off of targeted annual hours (i.e. 2400 hours)?

Anyone been able to switch their benefits during the year through doing an appeal? I was no wiser and signed up for Aetna DMO vs PPO and all the dentists are fucking 1 star! 😖

Fish in your late 30s, what do you look for in a potential partner? I’m falling for someone but I think he’s been treating me more like a lil sister (age gap) and purposely watching his every move.

Is it too early to begin job searching less than a year into the job? I feel it’s better to leave earlier than later. Thoughts? I don’t feel like I’m developing at all.

I’m trying to figure out if I should be angry., I was going through my husband’s stuff, trying to find an envelope, and I found some pictures of my husband with his ex girlfriend. He knows I hate her guts especially when she tried being friends with my husband before we were married. It took me a year but I shut that friendship down. Now we are married with a kid and I came address this. I did tear all pictures up and throw them away but do I need to confront or let this one go?
Bench has been deep lately for strategy analysts. Word is there’s talks going on with a silicon valley firm… Upvote if you’ve heard the same.
Straight male 🐠: I’m not quite sure what ‘giving flowers’ means on here, but is the idea of an extra bit like this weird or normal? Apparently this consultant from Roland Berger is killing it on CMB
