Management consultants of metafilter - tell me about your work day!

I'm in the early stages of exploring a career shift into management consulting. I've spoken to a few people in one company, but I'm interested in hearing from people who do not have to speak for their employer as well.

The nature of work I'm looking at would almost certainly involve a fair amount of travel and time away from home, so I want to get a better idea if the lifestyle would be rewarding for me. For background, my current role is in the public sector as a subject matter expert/senior policy analyst. If you are in consulting, what do you love about it? How do you feel about dealing with different clients and reporting structures? What's a really bad day on the job like? A really good day?
Also, if you used to be in consulting and decided to go back to a traditional, full-time employment arrangement, what prompted that?
