Average probably 60-65 year round at PwC. If you’re considering switching from audit, I’d reconsider.

Average probably 45-50 the past year. Pre covid there were bigger gaps between deals, and more time off

likefunny

You should switch groups then lol

Hard to say average because there is so much variability. You could be on a deal for 3 weeks and work 25 hours week 1, 45 hours week 2 and 60 hours week 3 followed by 2-3 days on the bench and then help tee up a new deal (request list, reading background info, etc.) This is just an example as every deal and office is different depending on deal flow.

Exactly this. Why I gave a 45-50 average. It is definitely more than at times, but also less than that as well.

like

It’s not that bad if you were on a large public filer in audit

like

Highly sporadic. Anywhere from 30-100+ depending on the pace of each deal.

like

All in I average somewhere around 50. There are 20 hour weeks and there are 80+ hour weeks (although rare and definitely don’t happen for every deal).

Hey friends! So I left PwC (risk assurance, did a bit of consulting) about 4 years ago for industry, and have been working in supply chain ever since for a major retailer. Recently, a recruiter from Protiviti reached out to talk to me about open roles in supply chain consulting, and I’m trying to decide if this would be a good move or not. I know it wouldn’t be quite the same as the hours as big 4, but I don’t know enough to be sure if it’s the right fit. Any advice?
