Do you enjoy the work at MBB? I know the hours can be long, but is the work interesting and/or enjoyable?

We may gripe, but I truly couldn’t think of a place I’d rather spend at least a few years of my career. Hours can be tough, but I’ve found the work really interesting most of the time, the people actually remarkable, and the support system great.

I came over from a boutique and I really do love it. The work is way more interesting and I work maybe only 3-4 hours more per week on average (usually between 55-60)

Asking this because I've seen higher than expected negativity around MBB in the Consulting bowl and would like to get diverse opinions. Currently considering joining one of the 3 firms.

Had friends that went to both Bain and Mck - Bain is more fratty even their people are, Mck people range cause it’s so big but you can have on the closest personality to bankers to just nice smart people to full frat but on average are a bit more intense/try-hardy
