I've had a few years as an IB analyst, about 6 years as a PE associate at a few different shops. Wonderful opportunities, met some great people, learned tons, but I'm burned out. The stress and demands on my time have taken their toll - each shop was the same, mind you, so I've concluded it's the nature of the deal industry. I'm in my late 20s, starting a family, and I'd like to reprioritize my time.
Any thoughts? I'm really looking for some great insight about what could work next to provide the work-life balance I seek. I was thinking about "real money" management as in mutual fund analyst/long-only work. Any other thoughts?
Thanks all for your help!
