In most cases, you will work from the client site or the office from Monday to Thursday regardless of your seniority while Fridays you will have a bit more flexibility.
I honestly don't see great chances that this model will change after the pandemic because while transactional meetings (e.g. data collection, interviews) can be moved online, most of the other key consulting activities (e.g. networking, peer-to-peer coaching, relationship building) require personal face to face interaction. But this is just speculation for the time being.
This highly depends on the market (both questions), so I recommend you to discuss this with somebody at the firm and office you're interested in, and be more specific about what type of flexibility you're looking for.
