Nothing more than curiosity. How is the WLB at google , Apple and Amazon? I am never going to work in any of these companies but just curious to know how they work. How different is it compared to consulting ?

My impression (from colleagues who exited there) is amazon can be just as hard from a WLB perspective as consulting. I generally hear good things about facebook and how they treat their employees. Google honestly I’m not sure there is ab overarching trend for WLB. Hear great things about their culture though

I work at a startup. Yes, I work as much or more than when I was in B4 consulting, but my WLB is much better because all my meetings are internal which gives me more flexibility over my schedule and honestly the meetings are much more productive than my client driven ones ever were. Then I can focus on work in between meetings or in the evenings because most of the deliverables are for internal use, so much less pressure and offer sight.
