How accurately do you guys charge your billable time? Not asking due to overcharging. Asking because too lazy to keep up.
Should the firms be more supportive of you getting your cpa? Why does it seem every time you're close to the next exam your billable hours sky rocket?
this email though– "...busy season to be defined as 9/12 to 12/31. based on client needs, may extend to 3/31. seniors/staff 50-55 billable hours." bc 6 mo of BS should be acceptable... 🙋🏼🔫
What are everyone's thoughts on firm activities/professional development work that you do outside billable hours? Anyone else feel that most are a complete waste of time?
15 minutes after the fire alarm went off at client building and as our team stands outside the building the first thing our SM tells the team- "remember all this is billable time."
If Donald trump works from Trump Tower two days a week, is he remote and WFH? As his client, I am not ok with that since his billable rate is really high.
I just connected some dots and got a colleague off the bench and on some billable work. What a great feeling! 🤓
Billable time - I'm on a plane ride traveling for one client but working on the plane on a different client. Do you charge time to both clients for the time? If not which one do you charge?
2,158 hours contracted a year. Tax season: 55 hour week minimum with 90% billable time. You?
Excluding doctors and lawyers, do you think that it is fair to say that working as a consultant is a lot more demanding that many other business jobs? (Billable hours, 24/7 availability, etc..)
Just had a SM call and ask to move over 2 weeks of billable work to a PRD code because the project is over budget. Just checked and this will put me just at 89% utilization for year end (cont.)
Question: You're working as a freelancer. And have to travel for the job. Do you include those hours that you are traveling as billable hours or only the next day when the job starts?
The anxiety doesn't stop. Project restricted to 40 billable hours, but have to work tomorrow because we just have too much to do. Overworked and underutilized. Eff me.
How often are you full time on a semi traveling project, and your pml pulls you into his side projects without any billable hours 😑 so dang unethical! side stuff is in addition to your 100% project
SMs-if I email you something you asked me to do as a favor, please have a courtesy to at least reply.Even a single word "Thanks" will work and will not take more than 30s of your highly billable time

My team of 10 is located in 2 countries and 5 cities. Oh and we never physically meet the client either they are in the 6th city. So much For being a collocated agile team. Sigh! #hownottodoagile
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
That feeling when you've been texting your manager's work phone instead of mobile and wondering why he hasn't been responding on urgent matters 😅😅
EPMs at Apple - what’s your TC like? Interested in knowing base and rsu range. I’d appreciate your help. Thanks! Apple
That feeling when the HR/Talent head of your service line let’s you bill a project for the time they kept you on the bench and decided to go with another consultant. Thanks for the util!
Feedback from my Director in a mock client interview , "If you had said that to a real client I would pin you to the mat!". Considering how hot he is I'll risk it 😏
