No. Even internal teams (non-client facing) will often have longer hours that that

Yeah that’s true, though I haven’t felt much pressure to be responsive at night (though sometimes do it to get ahead). Imagine pre-covid felt different - Wfh is quite nice and I can build in breaks/mid day appointments/etc pretty readily, prefer this setup with the occasional evening flex vs a true 9-5 clock in/out kind of situation

9-5???? WTF I don’t think any consulting firm provides those hours. Ending at 5PM is unheard of. I’ll be happy if I can start at 8AM and finish by 8PM everyday

Ehhh I work pretty consistently 8-6 but fridays I’m done by 430 or 5.

No

I had a project for a few months that was consistently ~40 hours per week. But there's no industry / practice area that will get you that consistently, project after project

Yeah, that’s the problem. My current project is 6 weeks long and super chill, I’m working like 40-45. But last project before that I was at 65 probably

I had a project that finished at 5PM every day for a few weeks once. Only once

Is it the workload or the type of work that results in these kinds of hours?

It’s churn - you do the work, think you have an answer, then your partners review it and say the answer should be different. Then you go back and do more work to conform to that answer. Then the client says the answer should be different so you churn and burn to marry those 2 views. Then the client and partners pat each other on the backs while you recover from your PTSD.

I’m convinced that β€œimplementations” are more challenging than β€œstrategy” consulting.

Just made M at Accenture and will make $155k. I have an offer to join McKinsey as a BA for $90k. I do really like my team and projects at Accenture and was able to progress fairly accelerated to M at ACN (so maybe could keep it up for progression to SM?). But also I know how much people value the MBB brand. Thoughts?

Is HBS worth it for late-stage VC? Got in but not sure if I want to pay ~$200K tuition + ~$400K opportunity cost if I know the job I want next and I think it’s attainable now. Context: I spent 2 years at MBB and am finishing up my 2 years in UMM tech PE. I’m targeting growth teams at Accel, Sequoia, Bessemer, IVP, etc. I hear the argument for branding and networking, but is it worth $600K+? Also feel like the value of an MBA is decreasing, even if from HBS.
