How bad is the travelling job? I am thinking of taking a project that requires travelling but not sure as I never dud before. But it looks like I get some good experience. Is it worth?

That's an it depends type of question. Are you married with kids or single? Where is the assignment? Do you like to travel and see new places or are you a homebody? I traveled full time for 8 years and there were good projects and bad ones. A lot depends on where you're going as the work and the people are going to be relatively similar wherever you are. Similar in a lot of ways but of course there are regional differences and big city/small town differences. Married with kids now so not too keen on being a road warrior any more, but it was great experience and I love to travel and have been all over the continent and much of the world traveling for business. The experience gained has been priceless.

Have competing offers from EY and KPMG UK Economic advisory teams( Manager/Snr Exec level). KPMG's UK technical rep and comp offer is better, but the hours appear longer. EY UK Director has had several calls selling culture (diversity and work life balance). Is there actually a substantive emphasis on this by EY? Or are 50+ hour weeks quite common? I suspect it's going to be quite team dependent/ project dependent, and therefore a gamble in any case. Thanks for any perspectives.
