On average, how many hrs are worked as a lev fin junior associate? Potential opportunity to switch from sales s&t macro role to a lev fin associate role, but not sure if it's worth the change. Currently working 55 hrs a week, 50-60 avg. Current all-in comp is 200k

Quickly summarizing in excel, just left-leads (no JBRs - filters are tough by company w/ this one - they jumble all the JBRs into 1 cell) - if someone has the league tables excel file with underlying data - happy to sort a better output...

2021: New Money, left lead only

Note 1 (New Money): No Refinancings, repricings, DIP, GCP),

Note 2 Left lead only (no JBR - altho a huge part of fees/business)

JPM, GS, BNP, DB, BofA, CS is broadly the top 6 and most respectable ones. Think that this is broadly the correct order more or less. 
 

JPM is clear #1 every year more or less but culture is rough. BNP does a bunch of volume through balance sheet but not necessarily great analyst experience. GS is more of capital markets shop. DB/CS/BofA are probably the better LevFin teams that model quite a bit.
