What are ways to deal with high latency mricroservice in a given region. Given that it's Cpu utilization is not exhausted.. So no vertical scaling ???
Does anyone have experience transitioning from bedside nursing to Utilization Review? Most of the positions I’ve seen require previous UR work to even be considered. I tried talking to my current employer about cross trading and was told they won’t train anyone to those positions. TIA.
Anyone here utilized an early professional mortgage? I’ve seen a few banks that offer them to attorneys, CPAs, etc that are looking to buy a home with low down payment. Just want to know what the catch is (obviously there has to be one but it’s not apparent from the websites). See link below for an example from Cadence Bank. BBVA does these as well. https://cadencebank.com/personal/mortgages/early-professionals-loan-program
How do you calculate your utilization and what % threshold is the goal for each level (audit) ?

If I work at a big 4 consulting firm in gps (well utilized on fully government client work) will I be OK during the upcoming recession?
My school offers 3 tracts for the masters of accountancy (audit, tax, data analytics/information security). Which would you recommend I focus on? I am currently leaning towards the data analytics due to the fact technology has become such a important part of accounting and that tract will give me better analytical skills. However, I do know firms teach you to learn their software so I am also wondering if my time would be better utilized picking tax or audit.
How does comp work at Alvarez & Marsal? I know bonus is based on utilization / collections, but how does that really work when you're executing against a SOW with a certain amount of hours budgeted. If I'm only budgeted at 70%, how do you increase your utilization to increase your bonus.
Promotion stripped away. Why? Because leadership sucks ass in selling (closing) business, resulting in low staff utilization. High performer first 2 years with facts and stats to back up.
Does maternity leave affect your utilization?

Deloitte is laying off 5% of US workforce. KPMG Australia voluntarily took a pay cut to help with expenses. GT has laid off roughly 50 underperforming/under utilized employees.. how’s everyone else doing?
What denominator does EYP use when calculating our utilization? Are we accountable for 55 or 40 hours a week?
Is it normal to be struggling with utilization your first 2/3 weeks? I’m a senior exp hire and all my engagements don’t pick up for a month and I reached out to my peer advisor/counselor for work too
My utilization was104% and I am getting a 3. So much to say, but you can imagine my frustration, especially since neither manager gave me negative feedback to my face for an entire year.
I had the greatest/easiest busy season in B4 history I think. Worked one 55 hour week while the rest were mid 40s. Probably wont be highly rated this year because of my utilization but worth it.

The entire pitch for automation in the early 20th century was that we wouldn't have to work so much.
I just moved from Europe to America and trying to understand the setup of American sports. So for each league if you finish last you get first draft pick.. this is incentivizing losing. In Europe, if you finish last you’re relegated. Am I missing something or it it normal to incentivize losing teams here? And what is the purpose?
PwC just gave me a $500 raise! LOL
Is it just me or do other people think business will BOOM once the COVID-19 scare is over? Companies will be scrambling to figure out strategies to save money, reskill workers, etc?

For ppl who applied recently (Feb/March/April) to MBB consulting roles in Canada, how long did you wait to hear back for interviews?
Would you take an offer with an industry company for $25k more with about 4x annual bonus compared to current role - but the new position is a Specialist, not a Manager role. I'm trying to decide if I should hold off for a better titled position or if it will matter all that much. Thanks for any insight.
I've always known delta does this but today I got to be on one of the flights bringing home one of our fallen soldiers. He's finally returning home after 66 years from North Korea. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
