Consistent 40 hrs/wk. Never work weekends. No problems taking PTO and I don’t need to work extra to balance it out on utilization.

So far, as a senior consultant, my experience at Deloitte from a work life perspective has been very poor (min 60 hours, between 60-80hrs/week). Early mornings and late night, often in the same day. All the while we are all forced to report 45 billable hours a week.
