What are hours like right now with deal flow? I’m doing a rotation in from audit and I’ve been working 50-70 hrs for awhile now bc of back to back busy seasons. Wondering if I should just prepare myself for the same.

I’m on the tax side but have been doing 50-80 a week since late June 2020. Typically around 60 (830-530, 730-10 or so are typical days with some weekend work).

I think it’ll be about the same but it’ll ebb and flow. Some weeks you legit do no work and sit at the computer while other weeks you can work until very late at night.

Long hours across most firms. It’s usually an ebb and flow, but it feels like it’s been nonstop at times.

Highly dependent on office, practice (FS vs Core), etc. TBH I’ve probably only been averaging 50 or so hours for the past few months. But as everyone says that comes in ebbs and flows. I’ve had a week where I only charged 10 hours and another week where it has bee 65. I’ve been on a slower deal as of recent so have been trying to help ad hoc here and there for other deals to keep up some utilization.

im in capital raising and have been working 50-70 hours a week for over a year

Im starting a new job but still employed somewhere else. I was trying to be open about staying at BOTH places. My current job won’t let me be part time because they don’t allow “set schedules”. Yet I am one of the only reliable and loyal employees in the department, and currently working a set schedule. So why will they not let me continue a set schedule but with different hours? This place is more focused on strict policies and not actually trying to work their employees and being flexible.
