First of all, Deloitte culture is nowhere near Bain culture. The hours can be though occasionally but we care seriously about sustainable workload. No one will make you do the work of 3 consultants like what’ve heard in D. I’ve seen many people joining us from Deloitte and they’re are very good. I really love working with other Bainies and most of them people with genuinely positive attitude. Hope this help!

Thanks, what grade are you and how long have you worked at Bain? Have you worked at any other firms?

I’ve accepted an offer for a non-partner track counsel position at an Amlaw 200 firm. Salary of 300k, expectation of 1800 billable hours. Fully remote. I’ve worked at top regional firms during my 10+ year career. I’m leaving a small book and a solid shot at partner in 3-5 years for the risks of permanent counsel and unknown biglaw bs. Wife and I are prioritizing things other than careers with this move. She’s also able to go fully remote. I’m scared but also excited. Am I crazy?
