It's funny reading complaints about work load and travel in consulting. Come on people you signed up for this... it's not like you're military in the Middle East. This is your life embrace it.

But if we can't vent here without being judged... Where is it socially acceptable??


My life hasn't been easy: when I was young, my dad gave me a small loan of one million.


Deloitte- this is why we can't have nice things.


Plus that's the whole point of this app!


Typical Deloitte commen


I actually did not sign up for this, nowhere in the recruiting process did anyone tell me 80 hour weeks were normal


Dear OP: 1) Get over yourself. ๐Ÿ˜’ 2) Reconsider the purpose of this app. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’ 3) Why would you bring up military in the Middle East?WTF? ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’ 4) See: 1. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’


Oh fuck this. I've had ups and downs and project highs and lows (one of my best was a non-military gig in the Middle East) - but at its worst this life is soul sucking


Telling people they're better off than the rest or it could be worse isn't really a good mechanism for anything. It's all relative and it always will be.


I should really start putting my real hours!


@McK Personally worked in the Middle East in the military, I can tell you your experience is very far from the military experience there #LetsKeepItReal


And this is a place to commiserate where people shouldn't think we are assholes.....until you go and post something like this....thanks mom


Do you actually put in 80 hours in sap? I always get cautious because I feel what if they think I am being "inefficient"

If I worked the hours, then yes why not???? It's indicating to the PM that workload is high, unexpectedly.

Personally working in the Middle East, I can tell you it's not too far from the military experience here #LetsKeepItClean

^ agree

Trying to raise a family off of a minimum wage is soul sucking, BCG. You don't realize how good you have it.
If you're unhappy, get out.
