Depends on the team & client. In terms of WLB, I see strategy folks tend to work longer hours compared to the rest. Makes sense since they typically have tight deadlines and projects are usually 2-3 months. Overall my experience in WLB has been alright, you’ll work weekends from time to time and past 6 pm but if you have a good team it won’t be as often.

In terms of traveling that mainly depends on the client. Most consulting companies in the region including Accenture have a lot of projects in KSA so expect to travel to KSA if your client is based there. Some clients will want you to be based there for the entirety of the project sometimes you’ll only need to travel when it’s necessary (deliverable/workshop/meetings)

Thank you!

Don’t join consulting if you are concerned about WLB.
If you get a good project where you get the WLB then it’s a good surprise.

Atleast that way you are not disappointed

Looking at exiting to a F500 company (Rank ~300), for a director of strategy role, with my manager reporting directly to the CSO.

The pay is identical, plus stock RSUs on top. WLB is much better (8-5 job), and work is more interesting.

They require relocation to a LCOL (less desirable) city. I'm thinking of asking to work remotely for the first 6-12 months (to accommodate wifes job), and fly in every other week (coast to coast flight).

Is that reasonable to ask? What else should I consider?
