Depends on the office. Friends in London have typical 80h weeks with some at 90 and some at 70 but they say teams are good and people are nice. They use lean teams so the work can get tough (and they tend to be very technical - bombed the technical interview with them once and the recruiter said she would feel comfortable putting me through to the assessment centre of other boutiques such as GHL, HL and MoCo but not CP. Perhaps this was just her skewed view). If you're asking for QoL with 90h weeks, it'll be shit but having nice people makes it better. Again, this is just what I heard about the London office and can't speak for others.

Is CP through Freshminds as GHL use them? Or Dartmouth Partners? Or an other HH firm?

Can you remember what was the technical questions/What do you mean by very technical?

They use Dartmouth Partners. Can't remember specific questions but the topics were DCF, debt restructuring, LBOs and MBOs.

Never heard of anyone asking for MBOs. I'll have a look at it thanks!

Was this for an Analyst 1/Summer analyst position or experienced hire?

Not that cyclical imo, probably when its a light week 60-70 hours, never 50 hours.

Can get to 100-110 on some very terrible weeks.
