The 3 weeks of pto that do not affect utilization are also for USDC? I took a 6 days recently and my utilization went down…
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%
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?
Welcome to Whose Job is it Anyways! Where the deliverable is made up and the utilization doesn't matter.
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Serious question: how do you "become" a top performer in a company? I get why some are viewed as rock stars or go-getters, but not how they do it or drum up the top-level support for it. Whenever I press to kickstart initiatives or push in a certain direction, the leadership is never interested in the actions or ideas. Instead, we just get told to bill hours and keep our utilization high. It's demoralizing how there is no support or interest in people that try to develop new areas or initiatives
Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
Everyone I reach out to is saying that things are slow during this time of the year and I am starting to get worried about my utilization. Is it true for all staffs?
I work in the IC and, as many of you know, the security related paperwork lead-time between engagements can take months sometimes. Had super low utilization due to constant rotations to....
Dammit...45 mins and still trying to submit time in Mercury ...Gold Rating to developers
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.
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".
When does fy18 utilization start? May or July?
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Expecting in few months and have the option to opt out of performance eval this yr.Have really low/negligible utilization, I did everything I could but could not get staffed. How will this affect me?
Curious...currently at 60% utilization PY. Some things on the pipeline but I don't feel particularly confident that them. What's considered dangerously low? Genuine advice?
GT NY Folks- Tax A1 here, any insight on round tables for first year’s? People have said they generally never fire A1’s, is that true? Utilization is low so a little concerned.
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Deloitte be like: Your safety is our #1 priority.....but so is utilization becau$e year end is around the corner

How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....

Considering PE, but concerned that the work-life balance is just as onerous, if not much worse, than consulting. Can PE folks be great at their job and have some semblance of a family life (ie evenings with fam, mostly free wknds, vacations without interruptions)? Don’t want to be an absent father
