Post-MBA Associate Life --- Consulting vs. I-BankingO
I know its an age old debate. Most forums and websites (M & I, Management Consulted, etc) give a good idea of what life is like as an analyst in consulting and ibanking. I'm in commercial banking contemplating maybe going to b-school and switching careers. I wanted to compare what post-mba life is like in both consulting and ibanking. What do ibanking associates earn? do they still clock 120+ hr workweeks? how about associates at MBB? what are their hours like? Travel? What are the pay differences? Reliable accounts please. The reason i'm asking is because quality of life is a bit more important as I recently got married and a baby is on the way (call it freak accident or bad timing but it happened) so the wife and the future kid need time too. People in the know, your input and guidance is appreciated!
