I heard that MC professionals in PwC US Advisory and Deloitte USI S&O work for 12+ (sometimes 16 hours) a day. How are you guys able to manage this? Don't you get frustrated working for so long and with minimal work life balance?

I know it is 12+ for sure. Projects + Internal admin work + reinvest work + hiring / interviews. Damn the grind never ends. You will be lucky to find a project which gives you a breather. Also, if you don't do the so called extra curriculars... Chances of promotion are less.


It's a sad truth. a few Lucky ones do get paid well for this as well.


Do you think it's worth working for 12-14 hours a day for 1 LPM


Story no different at Accenture MC... During pandemic there was no work-life balance... Things are getting better now but long way to go...


Any specfic reason why there was no wlb during the pandemic?

MC slowly get used to it....

Design question for my work from home ladies - how did you decorate around a standing desk, large monitors, etc?

I find that with a large monitor there’s not so much I can put on the wall without having the monitor partially cover it - especially when the desk moves.

I don’t mind if the decor is covered when I’m using it standing, but want it to look nice when it’s lower down. Also find that with the monitor/laptop another square on the wall is too much of the same shape - any inspiration?

How do I go about at least getting tested or what’s the the process? Thank you so much in advance.

Any idea on how much joining bonus KPMG gives for consultant role?


I am earning 16lpa for this financial year April 21-Mar 22.

When other colleague who enjoys daily and work for 5hrs/day he earn 14 lpa - but no need to pay tax at all.he was gaining all benefItsby old regime
But wat da use
