Day in the Life RX Consultant and Role?

Hi guys, I am an individual interviewing at a few top restructuring consulting firms. I was wondering what the work might look like from a day in the life and a general responsibility view. I've heard some people consider it an accounting heavy role as opposed to financial modeling and banking. I know there are some posts about it but the specific info isn't too accurate so any information would help. 

TLDR: Wondering what RX Consultants actually do, what does the work look like (i.e. very modeling heavy, accounting heavy, slide heavy, client facing role, e.t.c.), and any other general info.

Thanks!
