I'm really interested in consulting but am a bit put off by the hours that are required. After working in investment banking for the last 5 years i'm looking to regain my personal life. Are there any firms that are well know for their work/life balance?

Jay - I think a lot of firms are making an effort to improve work/life balance, it's seen as a key factor in improving retention rates. However, consulting by it's nature is client-driven and when a client says "jump" firms tend to say "how high?!". Whichever firm you were to join, I wouldn't say it's a realistic expectation not to do some stints of very long hours and possibly weekend work. You will probably enjoy better work/life balance than in investment banking, but this is no 9-5 job I'm afraid. Tony
