When you’re on a project, you work your butt off - usually gladly because you’re stretching yourself side by side with other brilliant young professionals. When you’re “on the beach” you get a break (40 hour week), but you’re expected (and want to) network within and outside the firm for the next round of hard action. The occasional long hours are actually very stimulating, and the rewards - in both self-pride and recognition (incl. $$$) make it more than worth while. You wanna be/stay middle middle class? Deloitte isn’t for you. You want upper middle to one percenter class? Stick it out and Deloitte will put you there. Forget the “quality of life” moaners... you have more opportunities for that than in 90% of the rest of the employment market.
If a starter to work,more working hrs is represented as more learning.But need many interesting and happy at his related work.
Otherwise,starter of a job who will get working stress and will loss his primary goal.

It is very hit and miss. Some staff work on 40-hour-a-week projects while others can work 50 or 60 hours. It all depends on the project budget, Partner / Senior Manager who is running the project, and timeline of work
