Don't remember the last project I was on where I worked more than 45 hours a week. Not saying that's true across the board of course, but I met a girl from PwC on here and for a while she tried to hide her lack of interest in my by telling me she was always working til 3 AM and shit. I'm like, " you already told me it's week one, you don't have outrageous hours yet, who do youbthinknyoure talking to 😂"

Financial services - in at 8:30 out at 5:45. It's sad that so many consultants wear their long hours as a badge of honor. Work smarter not harder. Be efficient with your time. I literally couldn't care less if someone tells me how long they were in the office until last night
