Plane time is my time - unless it’s an emergency (very rare)

I reach home 11:30 pm. The only call I am making is to my boyfriend

like

Home (walking in door) 6:30 PM, finish working around 7:30ish usually, I like shorter thursdays and wrap anything up on Friday

like

11pm, if I'm lucky. My flight is 4 hrs and often delayed.

like

My flight is 4-7 and I work through it, take a call on the drive home (30 mins) if needed and then I generally log off for the night (so ~7:30pm)

like

Leave client site by 3:30, home by 9 (last project), 6:30 (this project) and maybe do my last 30 or so min worth of work then meet the boys for a beer. I put in an honest day’s work on Friday though

like

8 ish

like

7:30. usually don’t work on plane (1.5 hr flight). Work about 4 hours on Friday. Don’t open laptop until Monday unless shit has hit the fan.

4 HOURS???! HowV

Yeah lucky to be home by 11 after a 5 hour flight. I’ll work on the plane if I have to, but have always pushed anything else to Friday by the time I’m on the ground

Work on the plane, home by 8:30-9, offline by 1010.

Get back 11pm-midnight....50/50 on having to format slides.....

Home by 10pm on a good night. 1am has become the norm unfortunately.

Typically walk in the door 2am, used to be 7am. Cross-country.

General rule in my practice is to book a flight that gets us home by 7 pm so I usually get home around 5-7 pm. Work hours are dependent on what’s outstanding or urgent

Last several projects it’s been 10-10:30pm in the door and hit SEND on whatever emails or deliverables I dealt with on the plane. Full day Friday. Next project looks to be home by 7:30-8pm Thursday. Looking forward to that!

I leave on a 6 pm flight on Thursdays and don't open my laptop unless really necessary.

The consulting services teams of big tech (Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, etc) seem like obvious entry points for consultants due to relevant experience, but they get little attention here. Why is that? Do those roles lack good pay, advancement opportunities or better WLB vs working for a consultancy? Do they have the same focus on firm initiatives, utilization and BD/sales as consulting firms?
