Generally far more variation by firm within PE vs IB.  LMM/MM tends to be better but largely driven by strategy and culture.  If WLB is key for yo, would try to really focus on those pieces when recruiting (ie. how many deals are they doing per year / per fund, how top heavy is the org, # of portcos per associate, are the senior guys family-types or MF-pedigree hardos, etc.).
