I averaged 1:30 am back at the office by 8:00 am. Totally agree with EY3 about industry. In in asset management but I know the guys in banking left around 10 every night.
Think I want to go to Deloitte or EY. Either you barely work or are unassigned lol.

6am back in at 9. Only for two days though. I wouldn't say Big 4 is more than mid tier. Really depends on city and industry. Also, at Big 4, if you're on a large accelerated filer, your busy season is done mid February. Mid tier guys are still working busy season hours into April.

2am for myself for a few weeks. I know people in the banking and capital markets group who worked until 4-5am for a week straight. I think industry and city matter a lot.
