All strategy firms hrs are 60-80 depending on projects, times of projects and well teammates, but no project, no firm is a easy task

like

Not very common but it happens on some projects

like

For me (worked across multiple firms) it is between 10-12 hrs a day, no weekends
Very occasionally when there's a deadline tomorrow or a super important meeting maybe can go upto 15 hours a day? But again very limited situations

That being said I know of teams that are much less efficient
At the end of the day it really has to do with the team and individual efficiency and if the project is undersold/ understaffed, not really firm specific

Depends on the project and the team- but the average has been ~70h per week.
