Rule number one of fishbowl - never ask a question about “advisory” without specifying an actual sub service line. It’s like asking how often do accountants travel

No busy season in advisory? I want what he's smoking!

This is entirely dependent on what sub sub sub LOS you’re in within advisory

There are generally no busy seasons in advisory. Beyond that manager 1 nailed it.

I travel an average of 1 or 2 trips a month, usually one overnight, sometimes up to a week max

0%. That's how much.... Actually I go to du once a year so that's it

I travel 2-3 days per week

Deloitte financial effectiveness JD requires travel 85-100%. So I haven’t applied yet, not saying they will want me. But that’s the range I heard a lot of consultants complain about

^ and there in lies the stupidity about how all the firms define service lines. There are true strategy / performance improvement / specialized IT systems related capabilities at all the firms, doesn’t make any sense why IT audit and internal audit related functions should sit under that umbrella instead of assurance.

5 days/week. Busy season is whenever you’re on an engagement basically

I travel typically 3-4 weeks a month, Monday through Thursday. Projects are demand based. I was done at 5 yesterday and looking at a midnight close tonight due to client demands 🤷‍♂️

travel atleast 2-3 a weeks a month. Leave Monday nights get back Thursdays. I’m in performance improvement

Travel every week from Mon. To thur. Sometimes also Friday. Depends on what projects you are on. You can be busy as hell or easy as heaven. It's all project oriented. By the way this PI-SAP
