It can vary widely between projects. Overall a busy lifestyle, but not terrible for most months.

Agreed with the above, usually about 12 hours a week day then maybe an hour of Sunday work just to be prepped for Monday stuff. It does vary though, I had my first 75 hour week last week

My lifestyle has been absolutely incredible. DM me if you want a referral

Lol 60 hrs a week is not light. I work 40-45 and fully billable

I would say 50-60 hours. Definitely not the typical MBB schedule - I am usually 830 AM - 9-10

These hours are for execution projects ? Sound very high. DDs I’d say would be 12-14 hrs a day but for execution work it’s insane if you are working that much

Execution. 50h min delivery and 5-10h BD or internal stuff. DDs of course go 60+ (without much of a limit)

It's not MBB level

Jason you lier !!! All you wanted was the referral bonus !!! Clearly it’s not a cushy 40-45 hr gig.

Lol thanks S&1

Is that usual A&M1, based on some posts here seems like you guys work a lot.

A&M what type of work do you do ?

I am between 70-80 per week. Few hours over the weekend. The rest working till 10-11 each night

That's CDD life in growth strategy for you..

Jesus where are the fishes who said super chill WLB when they were offering a referral. Lies lies lies !

It’s all project - specific. TSE can be worse than MBB depending on the project.

OP . You dont get the EY-P compensation without equivalent effort required. When their post mba base is $180k, you know it cant be a cushy 9-5 gig

I heard all C at EPY is at 170k(home grown & experienced hired). Can anyone verify.?

True
