Yup

S& totally depends on your group and who you're working for, just like any other non-hyper focused strategy firm If you work Deals and are doing PE DDs, can get super sweaty just like the corresponding teams that do that work at MBB and EY-P If not, it'll be less

EYP strategy is quite sweaty, but S& probably is as well. Can’t speak to Accenture

Agree with EYP1. TSE hours are around 50-55 per week, depending on the project.

You're right about the wlb. S& hours seem to start at 60h and go up from there. I'd say that Acn Strategy is 50h/wk vs 55 at EYP vs 60 at S&, relatively speaking. Very dependent on practice, as due diligence anywhere is always long hours. Don't forget to consider exits though.

I am not saying that DD is 50-60 h/week which I agree would be very light, I am using that range as a general indicator of work baseline, and calling out DD as an exceptionally difficult type of work. EYP has slightly better WLB because of the influx of EY consultants, resources and expectations. Not a huge gap, but I could see someone working 10% more at S&.

Moving from a boutique (<30 employees, MBB competitor) to the strategy practice of a Big 4. Have only worked for boutiques in the past, so I’m expecting there to be some major differences in terms of working style. What are the major differences and ‘watch outs’ you would point out to me? Could be anything from culture, to red tape, to compliance etc.
