D1, I'm going to slap the piss out of you at the next all deloitters event. And then I'm going to show you how to use the word savage properly.

EY1, that last bit about the "fat shit" is not exactly the way to handle things at PwC.
OP, Manager here. A few things:
1.) Your manager sounds immature and probably is not that great at their job
2.) If your tasks are done, leave. Like EY1 said, set boundaries for yourself. We have a no retaliation policy, and I know people that have relied upon it, successfully.
3.) If your tasks are done for the day, you're caught up on work, and you've hit your hours for the day, there's nothing the Manager can do to keep you there. If they have an issue with it, talk to your coach, talk to your RP, talk to the leadership on the engagement, and if you need to, talk to HR. If you don't feel comfortable doing any of that, call E&C. If the project is on schedule and he is wasting your time with chatter, he's the one in the wrong. That's time you could be doing work, or getting dinner and a workout in so you can get back home or to the hotel and get a little more work done (if needed), or unwind so you don't burn out.

PwC 2, it is absolutely not part of OP's job.

P2- it is not anyone's job to felate an arrogant manager's ego by pretending to give a fuck about his stories. This manager is rude and inconsiderate and he will run people away and he won't have people who want to work for him on projects in the future. Managers are nothing without their following. He needs to learn about servant leadership and have some humility.

Set boundaries for yourself. If you tell your EM you're leaving to go to the gym and your work is done, they can't exactly fire you. If they make comments about you leaving, just say you don't want to turn into a fat shit like most consultants.

OP... weekend work (unless absolutely necessary) can be an Ethics violation. There's actually a web training or training video about that exact scenario. You need to talk to at very least your coach or a partner you can trust or HR about this.

He is giving the rest of us managers a bad name. Call the ethics hotline and ask for their help. Don't be afraid to go to your director or partner, they may not know this behavior is going on.

Would appreciate some advice! I’m planning on switching careers- I’m currently a M at a T2 consulting firm, and am looking to go into tech seeking the best possible exit comp and having better wlb. I hear most of the best exits into tech come at a PM role compared to bizops, corp dev, etc. What levels, comp, and companies should I target and expect? I’m primarily interested in non-FAANG. I have 4 yoe and a tech master’s degree in IS for context. Thanks for the help!
