While I have heard that the most significant factor impacting an ER associate's work/life balance is the analyst that they work under (their style, etc.), I was wondering if covering certain sectors vs. others can cause an ER associate to have to work more/stranger hours, whereas others allow for a more predictable/normal lifestyle. For example, I've heard that those covering retail are more likely to have to work weekends (I'm not sure why though; maybe because of when they tend to report earnings?). Does anyone have firsthand experience of covering one sector vs. another and the resulting work/life balance it offered? I'm particularly interested in the Media and Entertainment sector, but any differences between sectors would be interesting/useful.
