I dislike working, but if you don’t pretend to love work and your firm, you are unlikely to advance. What drives me is the desire to make enough money to FIRE.

Haha definitely would not have guessed that. But I’m glad you aren’t aspiring to fire people. It truly is horrible

I am fine pulling some extra load towards heavy deadlines, but this 60 hour grind just for the sake of it gets boring quickly. I am down to 40-45 hour for the last year, I might not make top 10 percentile, but top 20 has its merits too.

That's hilarious in a very sad way. The culture has to be supported and reinforced by leadership for people to feel that it's necessary, unfortunately.

I feel like it’s so common. They spout “work life balance”, and expect you to just charge an 8 hour day, when you’re expected at the office at 7:30, and no one leaves til 6:30 minimum. And that’s just client work. Not to mention the work you’re not charging hours on while you’re in your hotel room, AND the reinvest you’re expected to engage in. Does anyone in consulting just work a 10 or 11 hour day and that’s it?

This is against policy. Charge the time you work to the appropriate code

Can some of you share some examples of folks that have been 'cancelled' that either didn't deserve to be or didn't make a swift return to where they were please?
