FAANG Corporate Strategy to Blackstone Alternative Asset Management

I've received an offer to join a new Quant Strategy team within BAAM as a 1st year associate. Almost every single Glassdoor review lists work-life balance, intense work hours as issues but what else should I be wary of considering that I'll be moving from a Corporate Strategy team at a large tech company if I accept?
