How does billable time work at your company? How do you manage your time?

Hey folks,

This question has been asked a few times but I’d like to read the room. I started working for an MSP for the first time this year, and was exposed to billable hours for the first time in my career. We’re expected to bill around six hours a day. At first I thought this would be simple, but its actually become a gigantic point of stress in my life. That extra two hours should be spent documenting and training, instead its filled with non billable, mandatory meetings. On a good day, I maybe have 30-60 minutes of flex time. Many days I have zero, so literally every minute of my day has to be spent billing clients for something.

I know its stressing my team TF out and Ive seen posts on this sub mentioning some horror stories (8 hour a day requirements). Im interested to see how many hours you’re required to bill in 2020, and how you manage to hit your numbers. Do you pad time, work late, find ways to work more efficiently, etc.

Im probably not long for this position but I want to do a good job while Im here. Any thoughts or advice?

Will the billable hour survive in 2021 +

Hey Consultants,

It's 2021 and I wanted to find out whether hourly billing will continue, or has been/will be completely replaced with fixed fees or value based pricing.

The reason I ask is:

  1. I strongly believe that it is hard not to guesstimate when billing is a flat rate or value based, and the hourly billing offers a good (if not better) benchmark.
  2. I am a pro billable hour because I have a time-tracking app - details withheld because of the rules.

Thoughts?

Billable hours are causing me anxiety.

I just joined a smaller consulting firm. Where I feel like I’ve been thrown into the fire. But the thing that is causing me the most anxiety is the billable hours aspect.

Every project seems like we are over budget and there isn’t enough time to do everything.

I was thrown into the field to lead wetland and stream evaluation - I would have liked someone with more experience out with me since I only have a little under a year assisting with wetlands and I’ve never lead or done it in this state.

But now I see my hourly breakdown for the GIS, data sheets, and report and I do not feel like I can get it all done in the amount of time I’ve been given. I’m spinning my wheels and feel pressure everytime I turn on my computer and waste a 15 minutes to getting set up or taking a bathroom break or replying to an email.

It’s causing me an extreme amount of anxiety. It follows me home. I feel like I need to stay late and not charge hours in order to stay within my allocated hours.

Does anyone else feel this way or do you get used to it?

What percentage of your billable rate do you receive as your wage?

I'm curious in hearing from others in this sector who may be aware as to what they're billed to their clients for. In my industry the majority of employees are billable 97-99% of the time (very limited training/vacation gets eaten by the company) and it seems like we are generally on sliding scales of 22-26% for our rate (of which we have many different titles/rates). And that applies to the least billable and most billable persons, ranging from $70-140/hr. We have higher than average capital cost needs compared to most envi consulting companies and also receive very good benefits.

Billable schedule

OK, so just started this week, literally been here 5 days. Next week, and everyweek thru Feb and 2 weeks in March are already showing 75-83 billable hours scheduled. WTF? Does anyone think that I know anything to do yet, so how the heck am I going to be able to bill 75 hours next week, I don't even have an idea what the engagements are or how to do any of the work. I have been assigned to 5 clients, which I don't think is too many, but these hours they are scheduling are ridiculous. I emailed one of the schedulers to ask about time conflicts, etc, as nicely as I could, she forwarded it to the Senior on this newest engagement, who proceeded to tell me this was the way it is, get used to it.

Apparently, one of the engagements had 5 associates resign last week, so they dipped into the new hire pool and started adding staff like we would have any idea what we are doing.

What do you consider billable hours?

I made a similar post last week but it was shoved down into the lower pits and didn't receive a single response. Unsure if this was intentional, since my question could depend on too many factors, or if it was just luck of the draw. Anyways...

I'm trying to figure out what software engineers (under contract) consider rightfully billable hours.

  1. Do I start the clock whenever I'm simply reading the code base (with intention to better understand components)?
  2. Do I bill for framework/language/convention investigation?
  3. Say I'm unclear on their deployment scripts, do I bill while investigating the plugin?
  4. Maybe a better question would be "what can I not bill for?".
  5. Have you ever had a dispute over your billing?

I have tried adopting a similar policy to what I would hope my lawyer would offer. Given a case (let's say a DUI), I would expect some billing for simply coming up to speed with the case. I wouldn't expect them to bill me to investigate the specific law (DUI) but would expect them to bill for investigating similar cases.

Am I Just Lucky or Do All Consulting Firms Require 80-90% Billable Hours?

I graduated back in 2019 with no internship experiences in environmental studies. I was hired as a planner for an environmental consulting firm at the start of this year. I am what my colleagues and supervisor call me, "Green" in the industry and admittedly did little research prior about the way job security is in this world. I had zero experience and they knew that coming in.

In the beginning, despite my supervisor reminding me that no matter how long I take, to bill it all accordingly. I would feel embarrassed that I was taking 2-hours to familiarize myself with many things before getting started and would under-bill myself. I was also over-consious about the client's budget and would end up charging a lot of Overhead hours.

It wasn't until 5-6 months in when I realized that your life depends on billable hours and most people online seems to say that it is mandatory they bill over 80-90% billable consistently or they're canned. I freaked out and looked at my to-date billable % and found that I was somewhere between 55-60% billable. I talked to my boss and he says that I need to work on that but because I'm still getting into the business, he expects me to target 65% billable each week. I looked at other folks and while there are high performers here and there hitting 80-100% billable, I see that there are frequent occurrences of numerous colleagues hitting only 60-70% throughout many weeks, and our company's % billable averaged out between 60-70%.

I see local job listings posting by big companies like Stantec expecting 80% billable, so is it just major firms that usually have these high expectations? Or are all firms like that and mine is just more lenient? I would expect major firms with more safeguard to be more lenient as opposed to smaller/medium sized firms like mine to have less to work with.

Billable Hours

I'm actually not civil, but I figure people in this discipline could relate more easily.

I'm just over 3 years into my career since graduation and the billable hour thing is really starting to get to me. I'm still new to a lot of the concepts being thrown at me on each project and when I bill honestly I'm over budget on time just about every project because it just takes me that long to get things done on top of learning. It's to the point at times I'm genuinely concerned about working on a project if I'm unclear on anything because I know if I have to spend time figuring something out I'm no longer efficient and I'm wasting time. At the same time I feel like I'm not producing good results. My direct peers are honestly insane and I can't even begin to match up. One of them just recently worked 40 hours straight on a project. The other has not worked less than a 65 hour week in his 3 years at the firm. I can't even begin to imagine if I were to work that much how much of my time would be wasted, I don't even think I have the ability to produce that many ethical hours.

I guess I'm making the assumption that hours spent learning and getting things correct aren't really ethical hours because you aren't directly producing the design, but still. How did you guys manage your early years when it comes to hitting time budgets and billing ethically?

What is your "Billable Hours" philosophy?

Just started a job at a consulting company that operates around "Billable Hours" -- a new concept to me. What are your general baseline "rules" for your work style, tracking hours, and billing hours?

Up till now I've been "Hourly" - where you are just to do incoming tasks at a reasonable pace, with the occasional-to-frequent task that needs to be done as fast as possible... most consequentially: never exceeding 40hrs, else be found in the spot of begging for overtime to get their tasks done by deadline.

This "Hourly" environment developed an personal goal of being as efficient as possible & evaluating workflows to better reach that virtue in effort to reduce my own suffering as much as possible.... frequently working an extra 30min - 1hr for free to wrap up something that will save long hours of my own suffering the next day. Only other system I've heard of is "Salary", which only has vacation/sick time logged, and work style is influenced only by the consequences of their responsibility or in pursuit of bonuses.

Now I have an hourly rate billed to the client (which $ I don't want to know), time logged by me per job down to the overwhelmingly high resolution of 0.1hr, and each job comes with a PM which have wildly different expectations of how to use time on the requested task. Sometimes tasks take me longer than expected in ways that are hard to anticipate & I don't know if there's an unspoken rule that some of that time should go to Overhead or worked for free -- sometimes I'll hear the budget is tight right after I complete a task, unsure if it was because of how long I took. Sometimes they intentionally mention the budget is tight up front -- is the intention to mean low quality work from being rushed is acceptable here, or is it best to do it right and unfinished until they get more time-money? On jobs where I feel especially guilty or fearful for taking so long, I work past the hours logged for free. I realize a large part of this responsibility is on the PM at the end of the day, but I'm having trouble establishing absolutely any baseline personal rules of work in this "billable hours" environment having never even heard of it before.

COVID seems to have confused the message of expectations from management as well, since they are communicating really relaxed expectations.If I will be evaluated as an employee by my %Time Billable when expectations return to something more normal, then it seems like acting within this virtue of hig

[CA] Change to Break Compensation / Billable Hours Question

My employer (based in Texas) announced that it will be altering the way that certain employees get paid and I wanted to check and see if there was any known legal issues with what they're attempting because it feels scummy.

Current Hours: I am a full time (non-exempt) salaried employee who works 8a-4p with a 30 minute lunch break (which is paid). This equals 7.5 hours a day of being at my desk, with 8 billable hours for a 40 hour a week.

New Hours: They are wanting to change the way that we get paid for breaks along with moving to a longer schedule. The new hours would be 8a-5p with an hour lunch break (which would become unpaid). This new system would be 8 hours a day of being at my desk, sustaining the 40 billable work hours a week.

The Impact: With this change it would technically result in 30 more minutes of work per-day. This stems from having us work an additional hour longer every day, but only giving us 30 minutes of more break, with no change to billable hours "technically speaking". The non-billable hour cost of this change would be dipping into 1 hour of my personal time every day and resulting in an overall increase of 30min per day compared to previously (so 5 hours of free time lost every week, and 2.5 hours of more work done every week), but there would be no change to actual "billable hours".

My Question: This feels really scummy as it is increasing the amount of work everyone has to do, but the company isn't re-compensating anyone for the additional hours since the swap from Paid to Unpaid for break-compensation means we wouldn't be hitting overtime. I don't know if this is 'wage gouging', but it feels like it's close? Is this legal?

NetSuite Invoice Billable Items with Bins

Here is our current situation:

  • Recently turned on bins
  • Recently updated to 2020.2
  • We use projects
  • Use invoice billable items to invoice customers for inventory items
  • Assume item XYZ has qty one on hand, is in the preferred bin, and was ordered on a PO that was marked billable.
  • Create invoice, under billable items item XYZ would be listed, mark apply (green check mark on inventory detail, so we are good to go!).
  • Click save.
    • Inventory is relieved at this point because the apply check box is marked.
    • Aside, if you uncheck the apply check box it will put the item back into inventory.
  • Click edit (let's assume we forgot to make an edit elsewhere), glance at the billable items subtab and see the apply check box is still marked.
  • Make edit elsewhere, check apply on the second billable item down (if there was one).
  • Click save.
  • Error message for the item on the top of the billable items list pops up " Please configure the inventory detail for ITEM DESC here".
  • It is acting as if it wants to pull the inventory detail information again, but there are now zero on hand!

Any insight? I believe we are either processing invoices/inventory incorrectly or not as NetSuite expects it, there is a setting that controls when inventor is relieved (after posting the invoice, for example), or there is a bug in 2020.2.

Accounting is backed up to the end of the month, so any help makes you a superstar!!

Managing billable subscriptions

We have a pretty large pool of subscription products that we track license usage for. How do you folks go about managing the tracking and billing of all the different licensed products that your users consume? Ill walk you through what's currently happening.

Client A submits a change request to add a supported user

Tech adds the supported user, adds an O365E3 license, sometimes a different license, sometimes a pbx seat, etc.

Tech opens a change log shared excel file and adds changes there

Billing department checks the change log for changes and updates the invoices in quickbooks before they are sent each month.

Inevitably things are forgotten. Billing for these services often doesn't match the current supported user or service list. Sometimes entire subscriptions are missed until they are caught on the AP end, long after billing opportunity was missed.

Mostly these are add on licenses or variations that exist outside out standard "stack". I'm not a fan of having techs push changes directly into QB. But my billing person isn't able to log into 10 different software portals to try and decide what is allocated to billable customers.

Set Default Billable Rate per Service Item per Project

I'm looking for the best way to handle our project billing of billable time. We want to set the default rate when the resources enter time entries.

We have service items that may be used for multiple projects.

Our billing rates are dependent on the service items and not on the resources.

In other words, the service item rate is the same for one project regardless of the resources. However, the same service item may have different rates across projects.

If there is one-to-one relationship between Project Task and Service Item, the planned approach is to assign the resources, the corresponding service item and the rate in each Project Task record.

If there is one-to-many relationship between Project Task and Service Item, the approach above will not work since you can only enter the resource once im each project task.

Rant on billable hours

I saw a rant on the 60 hour work week or longer. We don't need to rehash it. Who just doesn't like the billable hours metric in Public Accounting. I have ZERO solutions for it but it just really gets to me. I feel like no matter how good I am at my job it won't show up on my eval. My first year eval, 9 months long which I missed 1.5 months for COVID military service, and the only thing that went on my eval was generic good job first year and didn't hit billable hours. Funny thing, I did the math pro rata and I did hit my goals. Not going anywhere as I want to get senior and an eval as one.
