Don’t think it harder working here, harder getting in

Been at both. Tier 1 folks (those doing the strategy part) are a clear cut above the ppl at Tier 2. So not comparing apples to apples here - quality of output will differ given same task and hours worked...

MBB vs T2 is I think quite similar. T2s all want to be MBBs (put crudely) so work their people just as hard (to a good approximation). B4s have much more variety bc they’re so much bigger. I think the people who work hardest there work MBB hours. But there’s also a contingent of people who don’t work as hard. So you have more opportunity to set your own pace

Would assume that WLB and difficulty of tasks are more dependent on region and project than company. Generally though I think MBBK hours are quite similar to T2 hours and a bit longer than B4 hours in most regions

Sorry to hear you feel that way K2. Hope you’ll take it up with local leadership. Personally I feel great about the environment and the work we do, and though we lack volume and breadth we are on par in many industries and functions in my region and most importantly on par within salary and rates for similar work.
