thanks, I just got dinged on a buyside opp (hedge fund), and knowing im still stuck in banking and working these hours has brought me to utter rock bottom.

1. A1 going on A2

2. UBS

3. 1-2am minimum during week

4. Don't track actual hours

5. 1st month of training

6. Constant pitches only to get a joint role on financings / client to go with an EB / other BB. TMT group completely gone. Bad leadership.

0% chance I will stay for associate promotion. I don't think any of my peers will either. PE is more or less the same job at a large fund but more interested in being at a place that aligns with my investment philosophy and people I would be excited to work with (instead of people I don't really respect or am interested in learning from). I made the mistake of picking a job I wanted to be at vs. picking the right people. If only I could go back to college days and been a little smarter with my opportunities....
