real talk. that 100 light week is total bullshit. hours are no better or worse than any bank. let's stop perpetuating the mystique around Moelis and getting crushed.

lean deal team? it's not like anyone but analysts do work so analysts always get wasted either due to incompetence of associates and vps or pathetic MDs willing to do any and all

Associate hours at Moelis LA (Originally Posted: 09/27/2011)

Does anyone know what kind of hours one should expect as an Associate at Moelis LA? I hear NY is a sweatshop even by banking standards. Does anyone have a sense of actual hours worked there? What time would you usually leave the office?

I work at Moelis, I'm an analyst though. I'd say the associates' hours are long, but I don't think they are substantially worse than your average BB, and they have a much closer relationship with the senior people. I think some of it is a self fulfilling prophecy - at Moelis, the c-suite notices when you leave the office early. At Goldman, that's not the case.

Will Moelis still have very long hours? (Originally Posted: 10/13/2010)

i hear Moelis has very long hours even compared to other banks but with the hiring of such a big analyst class would the work be spread around and the hours more closely aligned with street?

Definitely not. They'll just pitch more. They wouldn't have hired a big class if they didn't think they had enough work to keep you all sleepless and bloodshot.

Second this. Their analysts spend ungodly amounts of time chasing sell-side M&A and making CIMs, and there's always enough of that to go around.
