You, my friend, need to adjust your expectations

Yes, but your average will be closer to 55-60. That often means a 45 week and a 65 week in the same study

No cause we aren’t right now. Maybe tack on 5 when traveling but your work is much less intense in person imo.

I’ve had a different experience - my average is 55-60, but it’s from being on some cases that were 70 every week, and others that were 45 every week

No, same response as Mck above

60-65

funny

55-60 is about right from my experience. I've had weeks at 40-45, but they're more an exception than a rule.

55-60 is probably the norm here

40 does not exist lol

I thought firms are more considerate of employees work life balance due to the high turn over recently. I don’t think 55-65 hours is being “considerate”

Agree with all of the above. I do think there is a bit of culture shift to reduce hours, but not below 55 hrs. There are still burner projects, but the attitude from partners / directors seems to have shifted quite a bit. I don't think pushing back on 55 hr / weeks would be well-received, but pushing back on consistent 70+ hr/weeks probably would be received well. I think when I first joined, pushing back on anything less than 80 hr weeks would have been laughed at.

60-70 on average not including travel (we never travelled at LEK anyway).

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.
