I'm not sure, but that wasn't my question. I also would want to do my research before trying something im not sure i want. But thanks for the helpful response

Plenty of roles, but none at the pure consulting track with those kind of hours. The only places you'll see those hours are analytics teams and support staff.

If you want consistent good work life balance, professional services isn’t for you.

I’m in new ventures and you can get closer to this (I have a rare week or so that’s around that many hours) but generally it’s 60+. Still not as crazy as the consultants on the ground and travel can be flexible but sometimes even more exhausting as you could be in 3 or 4 cities in a week - st least in my role.

Can you even get into MBB?

With quick turn around snot at first. As you move up there is more wiggle room but still long hours at times

I'm more involved on the analytics side at the moment, would you be able to speak more to what the analytics teams with those hours do/who they support/projects typically worked on?

You could go internal

Need some advice. Background...over 10 YOE in various infosec roles all in industry. Going through the motions of interviewing at ACN security consulting as an M. With my years of experience can I push for an SM? This would be my first client facing role. Also not too crazy about the travel (I know this is dumb to say as it’s consulting, but the bump in salary will be nice, I can almost guarantee it will be more than industry) but can M’s travel less compared to lower roles?

Hi ladies - I'm currently in the market for a remote associate-level role in Branding / Copywriting / Social with project management experience. I have 3 yrs workforce experience plus a combined 1 year internships.

I am seeking 60-65k, does that seem on par? I was making 50k + bonus at my last role but have had several recruiters tell me I can afford to ask for more.

Also, if anyone has any leads on roles please let me know, I'm looking for brand or agency side in anything non-tech/software!

Recently, with all the talk about work/life balance and salaries my team has been complaining A LOT! (Context: we only work 4 days per week, 1 day in office to collaborate with the team that works the opposing schedule.) Much of my team is upset they don’t get paid as much as the 5/day team members who are currently in office 3 of the 5 days. I am in office all 4 days (my preference) I just don’t understand the endless complaints about not being paid as much. 52 EXTRA days.. SIT DOWN
