Hey fishes

I have an offer from BCG gamma the a for Software Engineer role.

The constant feedback in all interviews was "Long working hours ". Hiring manager said 10-12 hours is normal. It goes upto 13-15 sometimes.
Is it really this bad? If this is then how is it sustainable?

I have offers from firms that will surely not have this long hours. Should I drop BCG and join one of them?

Yes. I would get out of there. It's nice that they're transparent with you, but take the warning for what it is. Unless you want to work 13-15 hour days.

One of my exes just started chatting back with me. She brought up times from the past and that she misses me etc. She keeps telling me to not reply at certain times when her family or husband is around

All of a sudden she's saying that our conversations are from the past, that she doesn't like telling me not to reply and that she doesn't want to cheat her husband. I gave her no idea of rekindling anything and infact was very clear about nothing happening btw us. Is this cheating? I'm confused
