What do you mean? I don't understand what "what is your utilization?" means. My utilization of what? I also don't understand "what is your utilization towards your company?"

I'm sorry, I am still a bit confused. What does utilization mean in this context?

Do you mean 'on a daily basis, how many hours do you spend doing your job (as opposed to participating in meetings, taking breaks, or doing other things which are not your job)?

If that is the case, my scheduled work hours are 8:30am to 5:30pm: 9 hours. I typically actually work until 7:00 (10.5 hours). Of that time, I would say I am on-task 5.5 hrs a day (mind you if I kept to the 9 hour days it would be closer to 4 hours on-task).

Of course my job is multi-faceted (I wear many hats) so it is pretty hard to get me to think "that's not my job." Really I only think of meetings and internal emails/calls as being distractions from my job.

I have no idea what "utilization" means in this context.

I still don't understand what you mean by utilization here.

You bet I give the employer what they way, else they will fire my butt out the door.

Are you perhaps asking do I work 100% on the company task while I'm in the office? I think this is a silly question. I think about the issues of my job in the shower, as I drive to and from work, etc.

Note: I've rarely worked for an hourly rate as a professional developer. But salary or hourly, I don't see that making a significant difference.

Because it is normal for humans to take breaks. Get a cup of coffee or tea. Find a candy bar. Grab a soda or some bottled water.

On the day after a big game, its is normal and expected to talk about how great your team did in the game. Makes no difference if its cricket, rugby, football, American football, baseball, etc.

I worked in one company that loved meetings. It was easy and common to have eight meetings that took an hour each. There was no time to do anything but go to meetings. By most definitions, no one there did any work.

Steve, it is true. Every time I've seen Bear work, he's been working at 150% capacity.
