8-9 hours. I personally would not make it on consistent 15-17 hour days.

9-10 hours

like

Client site 9-7 usually and if I want to leave at 6-630 to hotel I can. Then hour more of work on week nights. Friday's I don't do much work. Key is to work smart not hard. I always make it seem like I'm hard at work

I work in Federal S&O and therefore have a life! 9 hrs/day client billable + 1-2 hrs firm initiatives. If I have to work weekends it's bc of firm stuff, not client stuff. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽

I usually do 8-6, then shut down until the next day...and Fridays I usually relax after my red eye and only do about 4-5 hours.

like

@OP: yes. Per day on average. Then a little during weekends.

like

Typically 10-11 hour days. After dinner or working out, I usually open my computer back up for a bit.

like

And then there are days like today: working 15 hours+

like

I echo D6, unless you are hit with a congressional issue or something that deals with reputation control (lots of risk mitigation, preemptive media prep, etc). Occasional weeks of 12-hour days and what we call TDY or surge support but that's about it.

like

8:30 to 8:30 usually, occasional 8:30-midnight but mostly due to poor Management. There is nothing that can't get done in 9-10hrs/day given you work through lunch. Unless it the deal was scoped and staffed incorrectly or your SM wants to be a part of every slide creation and word content.

like

Typical part 1 day 8:30-5... Then your SM walks in at 5 to get your started on part 2 with him. Is the partner mentality a Deloitte thing? Everyone must talk out everything and be a part of all decisions. Geez coming from another firm, feel like there is wayyyyyy to much input from leaders who could probably be doing something else.

Just curious. I'm a one of MBB and reading this board has been very surprising to me -- from expense policies to discussions on comp to talking about projects. I get the feeling that hours might be very different, too. I'll go first: get to client 8-830. Close laptop 11pm-1am. Occasionally later, occasionally earlier. Normally stop working for a quick dinner, sometimes working dinner, sometimes team dinner. About an hour Sunday night prepping. 2-3 hours on a Saturday once a month. Lots of red eyes (live on west coast, do a lot of work on east coast). Maybe 20 per year.

11 hours per day, @D1?

I guess 60-65hrs a week is normal in our industry. Unless you're on bench!

OP: do you enjoy that? Sounds pretty crazy to work 15-17hr days.

That sucks D1. Luckily we have a three day weekend coming up.

These replies blow my mind.

I have money issues, despite making 140k TC and my partner making 70k, we struggle to come by comfortably. The mortgage, the car payments, credit cards.
