Didn’t take time off, wish I did 😅 mainly prepped at night and weekends

It’s grueling. Nights and weekends. No days off.

Just block the time in your calendar and say you have a personal/doctor appointment. I do that for 1-2h a week for interviews and honestly it’s been completely ok - work has not been affected

Does anyone know of people who went from consulting at a big 4 to product or project manager role at a tech giant like google or fb? Is it pretty common to make that career move?

I have been seeing a lot of discussions/ questions about the bad WLB at Deloitte among folks. Guys, Deloitte is a highly reputed firm that is known for the quality of work. They charge heavily to clients. (Almost 5-6 times hourly rate than a typical IT firm). Naturally, the clients want to get the work done ASAP with quality. Hence there is a massive amount of work pressure on the management and the resources. Deloitte compensates their resources really well along with providing a lot of Perks.
