“ Work / life balance? ”

Naturally there will be peak periods when work needs to be completed but do you find there is an expectation in the culture that you put in extra time? Or are your managers adamant that it's time to switch off when your work day ends?


Due to the variety of activities performed on a day-to-day basis, every day is different. Consulting certainly is not 9-5.

Also, it really depends on the project, the phase of the project and the people on the project.

So in a nutshell, you need to be ready to work hard but believe me it is never 9-9 every day for months.

Hello Anton, thank you and much appreciated for the response! This has helped put my expectations for consultancy into perspective.
