Deloitte Consulting - What's it like?


Hi, I am looking at applying to Deloitte as an experienced hire but interested to know what the work is life and the culture in the UK? I have read alot of reviews on Glassdoor but they are very US centric and alot of people are talking about very poor work life balance and expectancy of consultants/senior consultants to manage unreasonable workloads and extra practice development activities on top of client work.

Obviously, consulting industry is going to be hard work but how true are the horror stories of work life balance and working hours of Deloitte Consulting UK? Also, has anyone worked for Deloitte and had experience of Deloitte sticking to the 4-3-1 motto of 4 days client site, 3 nights away from home and 1 day regional office. Would appreciate peoples views.
